This weekend there are trees to trim, stocking to stuff and parties to go to. But there’s also music to hear! And plenty of it! Get out there, dance, sing and whatever you do… avoid the mall.

Saturday, December 14 – Kristy Lee, Eric Erdman & Ryan Balthrop @ Eddie’s Attic
That mighty rumble you hear coming from the general direction of Alabama from time to time is none other than Kristy Lee. Her voice like thunder, rolling in before a sweet southern rain. Kristy Lee’s unique rhythms are pure, nourishing, and unapologetic. This woman means it when she takes her voice out to play!
Little Tybee is something of a mini orchestra with its ever-evolving five to ten members all engaged in intricate musicianship. Their name comes from a tiny island off the coast of Georgia where, legend has it, an undetonated atomic bomb from the 1950s lies missing. They jokingly attribute the quirkiness of their tunes to the long-term effects of eating radiation-drenched seafood, but it’s more likely they were just born that way.
Sunday, December 15 – Everything is Terrible! Holiday Special @ The EARL
This holiday season, Everything Is Terrible!, the world famous psychedelic foot soldiers, return with another masterpiece. O’er the last 6 years EIT! has built upon their classic Holiday Special, each year creating a more abominable video collage of everyone’s least favorite time of the year! Decades’ worth of VHS memories of misplaced sentiments, fist fights, erotic Santas, Nazi elves and an endless parade of singing kids will surely destroy everything you love about Christmas. After the dust settles, will we have learned the true meaning of the season? There is only one way to find out. Watch the special!
