OK, you holiday shopping procrastinators: The 40th installment of Austin Christmas tradition Armadillo is offering last-minute gift opportunities by staying open until 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

The live music shows will continue throughout the day as well, with Albert and Gage at 11 a.m., Durawa at 3 p.m. and Bill Kirchen at 7 p.m. Even if you’ve already got all your presents wrapped and under the tree, he’s a legendary guitarist whose performance could be a fun way to celebrate the night before Christmas.

Slightly north, the Blue Genie Art Bazaar also offers shopping past dark.

Details: Armadillo: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday. $8. Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road. armadillobazaar.com. Blue Genie: 10 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday. Free. Marchesa Hall, 6226 Middle Fiskville Road. bluegenieartbazaar.com.
