"This powerful and well-stocked ensemble juxtaposes postwar big-band conventions with ideas borrowed from indie rock, classical Minimalism and a handful of other idiomatic regions. The results are well worth hearing."

WHEN: Sunday, December 16, 2007 at 6:30 PM
WHERE: Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery (btw East 1st Street & Bleecker), NYC
SUBWAY: F to 2nd Ave / D, F to B'way-Lafayette / 6 to Bleecker
COST: $15
TICKETS: At the door.
MAP: Click here.

What could be more magical than Christmas on the Bowery? With the entire avenue gaily lit by the lights of the Whole Foods Compound, and absolute must-have holiday fashions on offer at the new Varvatos@CBGB boutique (hint: those $125 t-shirts make great stocking stuffers!), you'll want to do all of your seasonal shopping this year on Old Bowery Lane.

And once you've filled your gift bags to the brim, why not stop in at the Bowery Poetry Club and put up your feet for a spell? Perhaps sip an egg-nog, or several? And should you chance to step inside on Sunday, December 16, you should know that yrs trly and his unindicted co-conspirators will take the stage at 6:30 PM for an early evening celebration of euphonious spectacle. This gang of charmingly rakish scoundrels will inflect your favorite Yuletide ditties with authentic Bow'ry brim and brio, including such uplifting holiday airs as "The Perils of Empire" and "Habeas Corpus."

The Society welcomes the return to the fold of elfin multi-instrumentalists Ben Kono and Jason Rigby, as well as the induction of trumpeter Nadje Noordhuis, recently a semi-finalist in the 2007 Monk Competition.

Ask yourself, could your seasonal experience truly be complete without a healthy helping of live steampunk bigband? It's a holiday tradition as beloved as Bill O'Reilly denouncing the secular progressive left for their villainous War on Christmas. Remember, this is your last chance to catch the Society before a newly-formed splinter cell hooks up with their Canadian connection and infiltrates the 2008 IAJE convention in Toronto.
