THE THERMOSES “Christmas in Allston” -- Recorded a few years ago by Roger from Yale MA/Pretty & Nice, Kevin from Everyday Is A Mixtape and others.
YOU CAN BE A WESLEY “Bamp” -- New fucking music from the Wesleys! Playing New Year's Eve at Pizzeria Regina in Allston with CreaturoS, the Migs and others.
Ho ho whoa! Our second-annual Phoenix Holiday EP is another seasonal serving of Christmas songs that will help you forget Pomplamoose ever existed. After famously fending off "Jerks" for much of her breakout 2012, former Tufts University student STEPHIE COPLAN and her merry band of PEDESTRIANS demand “No Assholes on Christmas” this year, and two cuts from acts on the bill for the Boston Band Crush Holiday Spectacular Friday at Brighton Music Hall, THE FIELD EFFECT (this week's What's F'N Next band) and EMILY PEAL turn in two distinct bell-jingling covers.
Holiday parties are a hell of a drug. Apologies for the tardiness of this week's playlist, but to make it up to America, I'll be back in the WFNX studio this Sunday, Christmas Day, to not only bust out a festive Boston Accents at 8pm, but to also crash the airwaves a few hours earlier to throw down a birthday playlist.
