THE PEANUTS-MACHINE: This year, Jeffrey Bützer and T.T. Mahoney perform the music to “A Charlie Brown Christmas” five times at three different venues.

The traffic growing increasingly chaotic, schizophrenic weather hanging over the city, and the sounds of bells ringing in the distance mean one thing: The holiday shopping blitz is about to reach a fever pitch. So once again Jeffrey Bützer and T.T. Mahony are back, performing Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack to Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 animated television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas.

This marks year 11 for what has become an Atlanta music tradition. Bützer stopped by CL HQ for a podcast with Music Editor Chad Radford and writer Jacob Chisenhall about his love for Schultz’s Peanuts characters, his aversion to the music of the Beach Boys, and a decade spent wrapping his head around Guaraldi’s music while watching the audience grow and change.

$15-$18. 8:30 p.m. Dec. 14-16, The Earl; $17.50-$22.50. 8:30 p.m. Dec. 18, Madlife Stage & Studio (Woodstock). $15 (kids 10 and under free). 4 p.m. & 8 p.m. Dec. 22, Kavarna.
