CALUMET -- As part of First Friday in Calumet, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. TONIGHT, Dec. 2, the Vertin Gallery will be bringing in the Backroom Boys to play some bayou-swing and swamp-jazz.
The Backroom Boys play a repertoire of favorite jazz, swing and more for both dancing and listening at the Omphale Gallery and Café Nov. 4, 2011, for last month's First Friday in Calumet.

"It's an opening, and a Holiday Party, so stop by for art, music, and good cheer," says musician Oren Tikkanen. "Also, Café Rosetta is opening a month-long exhibit of selected photographs by Don Curto, the celebrated chef, writer and photographer -- swing on by and take a look."
The Vertin Gallery will host a Winter Juried Exhibit of a group of artists, opening Dec. 2, 2011, and continuing through Jan. 3, 2012.
Update: The Vertin Gallery exhibit features pieces from many Vertin artists working in a variety of media. Joyce Koskenmaki, Margo McCafferty, and Kerri Corser are among the artists whose work is on display. The reception is from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., offering a great selection of snacks and beverages.
Also, don't miss the Christmas Show art opening tonight at the Ed Gray Gallery on Fifth St., right across from Café Rosetta. This show continues through Jan. 3, 2012.
