Christmas lights and music show
Saturday, 5:30 p.m., 19 Campbell Rd., Johnstons River

It’s the fifth season for Gary’s light show, and he says it’s bigger and better than ever — new songs, new lights and even singing trees. Sit back in your car, tune your radio to 90.1 FM and listen and watch the show. Runs nightly until Dec. 31, Sunday to Thursday 5:30-10 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-11 p.m. Donations in aid of Santa’s Angels, a volunteer-based group that provides a surprise Christmas morning to families in the Charlottetown area that are not able, for one reason or another, to provide Christmas gifts and food for their children.

Elephant Skeletons, Math Class and Buzzcat
Saturday, 11 p.m., Baba’s Lounge, Charlottetown

Elephant Skeletons returns to P.E.I. with Math Class and Buzzcat. Elephant Skeletons (www.elephantskeletons.bandcamp.com) sounds like a crew of bohemian rockers threw a disco dance marathon — driving beats melded with mysterious sounds and symbols. Math Class (https://soundcloud.com/mathclasssj) is a four-piece instrumental dance-punk band from Saint John, N.B., while Buzzcat (https://soundcloud.com/buzzcatmusic) chips in with dance floor beats.
