Let’s not get too brazenly accustomed to the performers that the Falcon in Marlboro calls “regulars.” Christmas Eve performer Marshall Crenshaw is one such regular; he is also one of the most highly regarded guitar-pop songwriters of the last 30 years, a cognoscenti pick and the owner of a dazzlingly good catalogue of general undervalued records. The man who played Lennon in the original cast of Beatlemania is actually more in the sweet-voiced tradition of McCartney, and is a melody writer who can safely be mentioned in the same breath.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Per usual, there is no cover charge at the Falcon, but generous donation is encouraged. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro.
