GET OUT: Water-skiing Santa

Once upon a time, the Wu-Tang Clan was a young person's rap group. That was before Jay-Z became a part-owner of the Nets, The Roots changed their name to Jimmy Fallon's Champagne Orchestra, or Ice Cube appeared on "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross and admitted that he discourages his kids from swearing (good on him, says us). Like their hip-hop brethren, Wu-Tang has gotten a little older, a little wiser, a little more cautious (what with the death of ODB). Which is why you can see the crew — RZA and GZA, Method Man and Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and Masta Killa, U-God and Inspectah Deck — playing at the (ahem) State Theatre, typically home to country and R&B acts. Is this weirder than Andrea Bocelli playing at the WWE-popularized Verizon Center? Possibly. Then again, this is the season of miracles. Dec. 23 at the State Theatre, 220 North Washington Street. Falls Church, VA.
