Decatur’s Bobby Ray Simmons Jr. (aka B.o.B) has a lot to celebrate with this homecoming gig. There’s his Grammy nod for record of the year, for starters. “Nothin’ on You,” a No. 1 hit that features it-boy Bruno Mars, will compete for that prize. His debut album, “B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” debuted at No. 1 when it was released in April and provided two more Top 10 singles in “Magic” (featuring Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo) and “Airplanes” (featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams).
8 p.m. Dec. 24. $25 in advance. Smith’s Olde Bar, 1578 Piedmont Road, Atlanta. 404-875-1522.
