Returning for the sixth installment of his annual Christmas tour, Robert Earl Keen has always had a special place for the holidays in his Americana-infused heart. Since 1984, Keen has crafted 19 albums, among them his holiday fan-favorite, Merry Christmas from the Family. He pours his energy, hilarious anecdotes and incredible music into a magical merry performance full of elves, sugarplums and maybe a cow or two. The result is the alt-country equivalent of eggnog: a concoction full of smooth Christmas cheer, with a honky-tonk kick.

Monday, December 4. $28.50-43.50, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
