Our annual Christmas show is taking place at the Mercury Lounge on Thursday, December 19th at 7 PM. Obviously our usual enthusiasm and excitement has been tempered by the overwhelming sadness of the past couple weeks. The thought of playing the set we had been preparing seemed absurd. Quite frankly the thought of playing any set at all seemed absurd. But we know John would want the show to go on, and the only way for the show to go on is to pay tribute to the man himself and celebrate the life and music of the one and only John Dorocki. So that's what we're going to do. We will be dedicating our entire set to John and playing songs he wrote, songs we wrote together over the years, and a couple songs for him. Many of these songs have never been performed live or even heard by most people, and they deserve to be, because they are great. There will be special guests and old friends and we hope that for one night at least, we can provide some brief comfort for those who love and miss him, and remind everyone what a special talent he was.
Also performing are East River Bandits, Wormburner, and the original Yule Dogs featuring members of all bands plus special guests, performing a wide variety of rock and roll Christmas classics.
If you would like to attend, please purchase tickets in advance because this show usually sells out. Here is a link:
