The 109’s top pick for entertainment this weekend is the Sundance Square Holiday Concert with Johnny Holliday and Friends.

The band will play 16 to 18 songs starting at 6 p.m. Dec. 5 on the Sundance Square stage, jazz artist Johnny Holliday said.

“The concert will be Christmas songs mixed with other smooth jazz songs,” he said.

According to Sundance Square’s website, Holliday is “a disciplined military member, and a man of deep faith” who brings a different dimension to his music.

The band, made up of Holliday, Nero D. Foster, Scott Stevens, Michael Hubbard Jr and Stanley Hall will play a combination of smooth, Latin and contemporary jazz, Holliday said.

Second pick this weekend is a free film screening of “Four Horsemen” starting at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

According the museum’s website, the film “is the debut feature from director Ross Ashcroft which reveals the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster.”

The screening is hosted by Movies that Matter, an educational program of Fort Worth’s Human Relation Commission which concentrates on issues of human and civil rights as well as anti-discrimination efforts, FWHRC spokesperson Veronica Villegas said.

A discussion panel guided by guest panelist Dawn Elliott, a TCU associate professor, will follow the 97-minute movie, Villegas said.
