Warm up from the cold, rainy pre-Christmas weather with a special singers-in-the-round show tonight at The Aster. Madison singer-songwriter Simon Balto, who has opened for Jason Isbell and Field Report to give you a sense of his music, gets support from members of the melodic folk journeymen The Last Revel—the group, btw, is finishing up its album that will likely be making splash on the local charts next year. 8 PM. $5. —Tony Cucina
