Normally, a Christmas band is something we'd strongly recommend avoiding, but for the past two years, one certain little Christmas band has become something to behold around Chicago once the temperature drops. They go by the name Snow Angels, and feature masquerading members of the Mannequin Men, Vee Dee, Busy Signals, Krunchies, and Screaming Yellow Zonkers, and they only do this once a year, if you're lucky. Tonight at the Bob Inn on Fullerton Avenue in Chicago, come check out Chris Maas, Don December XXV, Kevin Kringle, and Rey N. Deere live at 10 pm and at midnight for two free sets of the good kind of holiday classics from all across the board, but with a main focus on the rock'n rollers. Hopefully the crowd will get a rowdy rendition of the Sonics' "Santa Clause" this year, or maybe a Yobs impersonation? You never know, but with cheap tallboys and purple-nosed locals lined up the bar eating microwave pizzas, you can bet it'll be a frosty blast of fun guaranteed to make you forget about all the stress and anxiety of this exhausting time of year. After either set, come check out Keith Richards' birthday party (with VoT DJ's Canderson and Todd) at Delilah's right afterward, for hours of Rolling Stones pleasure in the form of rare records and videos, which is always a great way to sum up another year.
