NATALIE COLE: One of our favorite holiday moments of 2009 was when Natalie Cole turned on the big Christmas tree that sits atop Capitol Records (her father Nat King Cole famously worked with Capitol, of course). Now Ms. Cole will be singing at Walt Disney Concert Hall tonight at 8 p.m. If she takes on "The Christmas Song," that will be the aural equivalent of the big Capitol tree going all aglow.
JANIE BRYANT: She brought pinafores and brooches back, with gusto, courtesy of her work designing the wear on "Mad Men"; now Ms. Bryant has a new fashion book out, and she'll be signing it at the Beverly Center tonight.
HOLIDAY MUSIC AND MOVIES: The Celtic Tenors Holiday Show is in Cerritos; Katharine McPhee headlines a Fender Music Foundation benefit at Cafe Was; ArcLight Pasadena runs "Love Actually" while ArcLight Beach Cities has a "White Christmas." Oh, "Love Actually." Favorite scene? Emma Thompson and the CD opening.
