Where & When: What to Do Tonight

Music and theater to give thanks for

Between his gravelly voice and piano skills, Leon Russell is a music legend. He has worked with everyone from Frank Sinatra to Tina Turner to Willie Nelson, and he’s performing tonight at the State Theatre at 7. Buy tickets ($25) here.

Before the endless productions of The Nutcracker and A Christmas Carol start, capitalize on your last chance to catch a couple of non-holiday plays. Woolly Mammoth’s bizarre House of Gold closes Sunday, as does Neil Simon’s still-funny The Odd Couple at Theater J. Purchase tickets for House of Gold here and The Odd Couple here.

Burn some calories before your big meal tomorrow by dancing to the big-band Afrofunk sounds of Chopteeth at the Rock & Roll Hotel. The opening act is the 8 Ohms Band, a funk-and-soul group from Annapolis. 8 PM. Buy tickets ($15) here.
