Laura Freeman and the Hey Lollies are performing a free show at the Kessler Theater Dec. 9 thanks to state Rep. Raphael Anchia.

Anchia, who represents Oak Cliff, has two daughters, ages 7 and 9, and when they’re in Austin, they love to see the children’s music production, which includes puppetry. Last year, Anchia brought them to our neighborhood for a free holiday concert. About 250 people showed up, says Amy Cowan of Go Oak Cliff, who is helping to produce the event.

So the Democrat decided to bring them back again this year as a way to thank his constituents for their support.

The concert is free, but RSVP is required. Email or call 214.943.6081. The show starts at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9.
