Tuesday


Carson McHone’s seventh annual Christmas Eve Songwriter Special at White Horse. For local singer-songwriter McHone, this is a family-focused holiday evening, as her parents are co-owners of the White Horse. But the dozens of musicians and fans who gather here every year are an Austin music community family unto themselves. Participants play a couple of songs each, from 8 p.m. into the wee hours of Christmas morning. 500 Comal St. thewhitehorseaustin.com. — Peter Blackstock


Wednesday


A Very “Die Hard” Christmas. Whether “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie is a debate that has raged for years — the Bruce Willis action film takes place over the holidays. But whether it is or not, the Little Woodrow’s location on Burnet will screen it on Christmas night with free cookies and more. 8 to 11 p.m. Wednesday. 5425 Burnet Road. facebook.com/events/849995875457203/
