John Waters as the other creepy old Santa...
John Waters

A John Waters Christmas is hitting the road this December. Six dates are scheduled with a New York City stop at BB King's on December 22nd. The show takes the form of a monologue that "explores and explodes traditional archetypes as [Waters] shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of true crime holiday horror stories." Tickets for the NY show are on sale. He visits New Brunswick, NJ's State Theatre four days before (12/18) and tickets for that are on sale too. All dates below.

A John Waters Christmas is actually the name of the director's own holiday compilation that features the likes of Fat Daddy, Alvin & The Chipmunks and Tiny Tim. Videos of few of those are below.

Christmas Gift For YouBB King's will host another holiday show with Darlene Love on December 13th. The singer is a 2010 nominee for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and she appeared at the museum's two-night MSG show with Bruce & the E Street band. A video of her annual Letterman performance of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" is below. Tickets are on sale.

Darlene Love's Love for the Holidays will also be at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ on Sunday, December 20th. Tickets are on sale.

Elsewhere in Jersey, Darlene teams up with Ronnie Spector for "A Christmas Gift for You" at Red Bank, NJ's Count Basie Theater on Thursday, December 17th. (Both got their holiday start in part from their songs on 1963's A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector.) Tickets are on sale.

Then, Ronnie Spector's annual X-Mas Party runs for two nights at BB King's on Saturday, December 19th and Sunday, December 20th. Tickets are on sale.

Spector's new disc The Last of the Rock Stars (...) has guest appearances that include Keith Richards, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Patti Smith, Patrick Keeler (The Raconteurs) and Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather). There's also a version of "It's Christmas Once Again" to add to your holiday rotation alongside ubiquitous Ronettes versions of "Sleigh Ride" and "Frosty the Snowman."

Speaking of Patti Smith, she has some annual holiday shows coming up of her own, but those are after Christmas and include New Years Eve.

Great post! Am going to the John Waters gig in New Brunswick and the Ronnie Spector/Darlene Love gig in Red Bank. Has anyone ever been to a John Waters Christmas before?

wonder what the chances are of Darlene Love showing up at Ronnie's BB King dates. Red Bank's a bit of a trek on a thursday night with no car

Does Ronnie Spector put on a good show?

I see some other commenters giving you crap for your writing style. I think it’s bold and on the psychological level it’s a title that calls attention to it. Usually I don’t read many blogs but this one caught my eye just by the title. That’s a good example of writing at it’s best. Some people say the vulgarity is unnecessary but it’s probably the reason they read this post as well, so mission accomplished. Good job...

It is found by surveys that a when customers want to find a internet site for information or to buy a product or service, they find their site in one of the following ways: The first option is they find their site direct a explore engine. Secondly they find their site by clicking on a link from another website or page that relates to the topic in which they are interested. Occasionally, they find a site by hearing about it from a friend or reading in an article.

President Obama stated that the hope for a revival of the American economy could be found in creating and maintaining a clean energy industry and “green” jobs. The President also said that the jobs of tomorrow will be in the “clean energy sector” and that steps are being taken now towards a clean and profitable industry. This has been something that the President and his administration have been striving to achieve since gaining office. By stressing the importance of a green industry the White House is giving the American people a view of the hopeful future along with answers to the question, “how can we fix the economy?”
