TENNIS, LOVE—Don your cutest whites; Tennis is coming to town. The wife-and-husband duo creates melodious, sugary beauty with simple and jangly pop reminiscent of nights spent dancing under the crepe paper of a high school gym. Come watch 'em hold court and play a golden set, with new songs from their upcoming album Young and Old. CF

SHINY—For festivity on a budget, the long-running Christmas Ship Parade can't be beat.
