Christmas: B-Sides & Rarities

Join us for the dark and bluesy side of Yuletide, hunkering down in Fremont’s best venue, West of Lenin. For anyone who has ever gagged at the thought of a sugar plum, slipped spiked egg nog to a young cousin just to make Christmas Eve interesting, or woken up wearing half of a Santa Claus costume and no earthly idea of your own whereabouts, have we got a show for you:

• Music from Sky Lynn (of Levator), Kymberlee della Luce, and Superfluous, the Ukulele Cover Band;
• Storytelling featuring Jose Amador, Mark Fullerton, Rob MacGregor, Paul Shipp, Jerry Soules, Lisa Viertel, and Joe Zavadil;
• Words from poet-who-doesn’t-suck Graham Isaac and Paul Mullin with some drunken paean or another;
• Something from Scot Augustson (we predict either puppets or a rendition of “Ave Maria” in the voice of an angel), Jennifer Jasper (well, s$^%-ass funny is a safe bet), and John McKenna (when music meets the thing you wish you thought of).Tickets for this one-night-only event are $15 and available at Brown Paper Tickets ( and at the door. Seating is general admission and extremely limited.
