Merry Christmas Everybody!

As Tonight in Music and It's Christmas Tonight previously mentioned, the young and gifted Olympia rock bundles of joy known as Christmas are playing Funhouse tonight. The band has been fucking our region with their hot hot sex over the past two years, and now have an awesome LP, co-released by Highfives and Handshakes and CMRTYZ. The sounds Christmas make give me the same sort of sensation I got a decade ago when I first saw/heard Les Savy Fav in a tiny, claustrophobic space that dripped with sweat. Their self-titled 12" is loud, boisterous, and tuneful, with a flair for punchy garage and D.I.Y. punk screaming from fiery lead singer Emily Beanblossom (yes, that's her real name) who has the pipes to render Beth Ditto speechless. I've probably seen this band at least a half dozen times, in houses, DIY spaces, art galleries, and vintage shops, and am curious to see how much they rile up the surly audience at their Funhouse gig tonight, on a bill they're sharing with Matthew Melton's esteemed Bare Wires. Get stoked, dudes:
