The Annual Live Ledge Kwanzaa Festivus Ramadan Christmas Holiday Extravaganza

I'm not sure why, but I've skipped Christmas shows for the last couple of years. I think it has more to do with the day of the week that the holiday falls on, as it's certainly not due to a dearth of quality Christmas-oriented rock and roll.

Without duplicating anything from previous holiday shows, this year's version completely outstrips any of the previous Christmas shows. Ok, maybe starting off with the Partridge Family was a mistake, but I grew up with that album! Plus, Mr. Cassidy just passed so it's sort of a tribute to him.

After that questionable choice, there's brand new entries by The Minus 5, Cheap Trick, and Tav Falco. There are punk classics rewritten for the ocassion, such as that amazing Missile Toads' reworking of "Sonic Reducer". And there's plenty of punk, power pop, and Americana. It's the perfect show to play while wrapping your presents!
