The Wu-Tang Clan’s lineup is never a sure thing. But, in true holiday spirit, the rap troupe’s biggest names are all getting together for their show at the State Theatre, and there’s predicted to be a rare RZA appearance.

The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, died on Christmas morning five years ago. DJ Soul Call Paul will take to the turntables at the Black Cat to spin Brown’s music, making for an extra funky Christmas.

Even if all you want to do on Christmas Day is eat Chinese food, watch a movie and drink a beer, there’s an event for that, too. Head to the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, for an all-you-can-eat buffet of Chinese food, beer tastings and screenings of “The Princess Bride,” “Spaceballs” and “The Big Lebowski.”
