Event list 12.19.05

*Ed. Note: If you are going out tonight, you're out of your mind.

Everyone’s in town to celebrate Christ’s birth – or to wage a full-out war on him, his dumb family, and anyone who likes him. Since I don’t watch the news, I’m not sure what all this hype about the War on Christmas is about, but I’d like President Bush and his cabinet to know that I fully support the military effort. If we can seek out and kill whoever decided to combine all the holidays into hair-brained compound words like Christmakwanzukah, icing on the cake. Meanwhile, Silver Jews tickets for the Webster Hall 3.17 show are on sale now, and the Pixies live double CD Hey – Live Pixies has been released exclusively on eMusic (nice win, Yancey). I plan to download it tonight.

QUICKIE: on 12.2 Fat Baby was raided during the LEVY / Loose Records party, as was Tonic, Scenic, and Rothko…I can’t believe I missed Morrisey Park’s closing party on Saturday, and more to the point, I can’t believe Morrisey Park is closing. Where will I be when downtown New York becomes a suburb of the financial district?

The answer is, wherever there are Asterixes – that is if I can get my ass out of Brooklyn and the TWU doesn’t strike…
