For those of us itching for an official musical kick off to our holidays, we've got three (Spaceland!) options of BCTV favorites fast approaching.
First off is Eagle Rock's finest, Princeton (taking a cue from Yo La Tengo's tradition of offering a Hannukah show) at Spaceland on the 12th, with the merry jangle pop of the Parson Red Heads opening.
Two days later, Buzzbands is offering a FREE holiday show on the 13th - featuring Spirit Animal - who has been lying low with producer Danny Kalb (Beck, Neon Neon, Rilo Kiley) for a bit while a vinyl single is being produced (pre-order for "Ants" will be available at the show, as well as raffles and giveaways and all sorts of excitement).
Finally, please to enjoy the Christmas Card Concert featuring the theatrical pop of Saint Motel on the following Wednesday, the 16th, with the support of one of my very favorite bluesy duos - Rumspringa.
Another incentive? Christmas photobooth. I'm making this really easy for you guys.
