[phlipcam video] The Scrooges @ O'Brien's, December 2010 // performing 12.18 @ WFNX Holiday Party

Look out honey cuz I'm using technology! We're pulling this throwback classic out of the Phoenix Phlipcam vaults in nervous anticipation of THE SCROOGES -- the only all-Santa Stooges cover band, maybe in the world! -- decking our halls tomorrow night at the Lansdowne Pub for the WFNX Holiday party. Dave Unger and his merry band of musical misfits have been doing the Scrooges every December since 2001, and this appearance with us will be one of the street-walking Santas only gigs this year. 

MEAN CREEK, whose Youth Companion was just named Album of the Year in the 2012 Boston Music Awards, and THE FIELD EFFECT, the Phoenix's first What's F'N Next band to come out of Boston, are also on the bill. Mean Creek will perform a full set, just off the road from the Counting Crows national tour, and the Field Effect will do a rendition of their cover of WHAM's "Last Christmas," which is featured on this week's downloadable playlist.

We'll also have giveaways, from concert tickets to a guest slot hosting your own WFNX show, and DJ sets from KNIFE (Good Life Boston) and myself (the pill) and Mike Gioscia (formerly of X-Nite and WFNX nmorning host).

Of course, the whole thing is FREE with your RSVP. Ho, ho, whoa.
