Events that are billed as “kid-friendly” attain extra allure when schools shut down for weeks and parents are left scrambling for distractions.

The Side Door (2900 Franklin Blvd.) raises its kid-friendly hand to offer up an “Almost Christmas Eve Hoot” at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 23. Here’s how the live-entertainment venue describes the show.

“An evening with six of Sacramento’s most beloved, gifted and prolific musicians and singer-songwriters, all together on one stage, sharing songs, stories and anecdotes. For years now, Kepi Ghoulie (Groovie Ghoulies), Jonah Matranga (Far/Onelinedrawing), Kevin Seconds (7Seconds/Go National), Allyson Seconds (Go National) and David Houston have come together on or around Christmas Eve in Sacramento to share the stage, play their songs and celebrate their longtime friendship and love for their city, Sacramento!

“It has become quite the tradition that you won’t want to miss out on.”

You won’t miss out on it if you RSVP online and pay $20.

Henry Robinett is the next-scheduled live performer at the Side Door, on Jan. 27. Robinett describes himself thus:

“I’m a jazz guitarist who plays a variety of, mostly, improvised music. I also write music, and own and operate a recording studio. I’m also a teacher and college professor who taught at The University of the Pacific and Cosumnes River College and presently at various star prisons in Northern California.

“Many of you probably know me from my band, The Henry Robinett Group. This has been, and continues to be, a major creative outlet for me. I love writing for and performing with HRG.”
