Wagoneers all-ages holiday show at Continental Club. The anchor of live music on South Congress caters mostly to the, uh, seasoned clubgoers among us, though it has often been a launching-ground for young artists as well — including Wagoneers leader Monte Warden, who first played the place as a teenager in the 1980s. For one night each year, though, it’s open to everyone, even grade-schoolers and toddlers. The Wagoneers anchor the proceedings with their rockin’-country music, with Warden’s jazz-pop outfit the Dangerous Few also taking part, and a few special guests in the works, too. $10. 7:30 p.m. Saturday. 1315 S. Congress Ave. — Peter Blackstock

Expect bath and body and herbalism products, jewelry, crystals and even tarot readings at the emporium. 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Free. 2307 Manor Road.
