Twis the week before Christmas and all through the borough there are cheap shows to be seen. Commence your pre-holiday week with a comedic jaunt led by MC Mr. Napkins at Littlefield. Sojourn on with Kelli Scarr at Zebulon on Tuesday and then continue to Bruar Falls on Wednesday for the Food Stamps. Then for your week’s Dénouement, chill with the John McNeil Quartet at Puppet Jazz Bar. As always, nothing more than $5.

Thursday, Dec. 23
John McNeil Quartet: Puppets Jazz Club, 481 Fifth Ave. at 11th St., Park Slope, suggested donation, 9 p.m.
