Add a little musical spice to your Christmas eve: Brian Setzer Orchestra live at 9 p.m. on www.billboardlive.com

If you missed the Minneapolis guitarist-singer's soldout show at Mystic Lake Casino last month or just want to be rockin' around the Christmas tree on Thursday night, log on to your laptop. Or PC. It's free.

Setzer's Yule shindig will feature plenty of holiday chesnuts, a few Stray Cat struts and a couple of tunes from his swell new CD, "Songs from Lonely Avenue." The always stylish Setzer has wrapped the stage in all kinds of rock 'n' roll tinsel. He and his orchestra will be performing live from the Tennessee Theater in Knoxville.

According to Setzer's website, he bounced right back from his hospitalization in New Mexico on Dec. 14 after he halted a show and was treated for dehydration and high-altitude-induced vertigo. He performed the next night in Phoenix and the tour has continued without a hitch.
