It's the season for bells and chimes.
1. Ringin’ the holidays in
The turkey has been eaten. Christmas trees are up. And holiday shopping is in full force. That means it’s officially time for the return of something special not named Christmas: a Capital Ringers concert.
The musical ensemble is back with a show titled “Ring, Christmas Bells.” The Capital Ringers are distinguished by one of the largest sets of handbells and handchimes in Delmarva.
The ensemble performs on six octaves of handbells (73 bells), five octaves of Whitechapel handbells (61, made in London, England) and 67 handchimes covering five-and-a-half octaves.
See them “Ring, Christmas Bells” at 2 p.m., Saturday. Tickets are $15.

2. Hooked on Work Drugs
The relaxed feeling you get when you go boating is a similar vibe the band Work Drugs recreates for listeners.
The Philadelphia-based band’s music offers a sedative-wave/smooth-fi quality that’s good for activities like dancing and yachting.
You can enjoy a strong dosage of Work Drugs’ serene tunes from 10 to 11:30 p.m., Friday. Admission is free.
