The group will be part of Morehead Planetarium and Science Center's holiday concert series. Their show is 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, at the Chapel Hill planetarium. The band will play from its Christmas album, Snow Day!, "under the stars" of the planetarium.
Get there at 6 p.m. so kids can make their own instrument with help from Kidzu Children's Museum staff. They'll be able to play it during the concert. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for kids and students. Click here for details and to get your tickets.
