"We're not birds, we're a jug band!"

It's that time of year again. You can't seem to walk a block without seeing Christmas lights or hearing holiday favorites (all ten of them) from every passing storefront. If you're looking for something beyond "Baby, It's Cold Outside" for the hundredth time, there's no shortage of holiday-themed shows over the next few weeks. (Though some of them, however, may include that old chestnut.) Here's a few of them:

Sloan Wainwright is bringing the full band version of her intimate project to City Winery on Sunday (12/7) for a special holiday-centric show with the similarly minded Peter Stampfel & The Ether Frolic Mob (who plays new Greenpoint venue Aviv the night before) as well as performances from Cosy Sheridan, Muppeteer Peter Linz, Sam McTavey and more. Tickets for the show are on sale now. You can also catch Sloan at her niece and nephew Rufus and Martha Wainwright's holiday shows at Town Hall later in the month, one of which features, among many many others, Cyndi Lauper who's doing her own guest-filled holiday show.

Old 97's lead singer and prolific solo artist Rhett Miller is hosting his second annual holiday shindig at City Winery on December 16. The "Holiday Extravaganza" features music from Miller and comedy from Jen Kirkman, Dave Hill, Wyatt Cenac and more. Tickets for the show are on sale now.

Like last year, B.B. King Blues Club is hosting a slew of shows dedicated to the holiday celebrations. There's the club's annual Christmas party hosted by Ronnie Spector on December 20 (tickets), and four shows from another Phil Spector protege, Darlene Love, on December 19, 26, 27 and January 2. Tickets for all four shows are still available.

For those celebrating the other major religious holiday during this season, a cappella group The Maccabeats are having their annual Hanukkah show at B.B. King's on December 25 with support from Y-Studs. Tickets are on sale now.

Another option is "Christmas for the Jews" at City Winery. The stand-up show features sets from Avi Liberman, Jon Fisch, Cory Kahaney and more. Sold out.

Meanwhile, Matisyahu plays his annual "Festival of Light" show on December 20 at Best Buy Theater. Tickets for that show are still available.

What else? You can catch Dave Hill, his band Valley Lodge, Todd Barry, Janeane Garofalo, Bridget Everett, Chris DiStefano, Larry Murphy and more at "Meet Me Under The Mistletoe and Tell Me All Your Secrets" on December 10 at The Bell House. Tickets for the show are still available.

As discussed, there's a few other holiday shows at The Bell House including Norah Jones' country band Puss 'N' Boots, The Sweetback Sisters, Eliot & Ilana Glazer, Wasabassco's 70's Christmas Carol and what's sure to be a very magical show presented by Harry & the Potters.

Bridget Everett will also perform at drag king legend Murray Hill's holiday show with Carmine Covelli (who's in Bridget's band The Tender Moments and The Julie Ruin), and burlesque performers Perle Noire, Trixie Little and Mr. Gorgeous on December 13 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show are still available.

Another Christmas comedy show is Dan St. Germain's Christmas Spectacular at Union Hall on December 16 with sets from Brooks Wheelan, Jared Logan, Kevin Barnett, Jacqueline Novak and Team Submarine. Tickets for that show are still available.

Also at Union Hall, on December 14 (tix) is a Christmas edition of their monthly "Muppet Vault" series where they'll show classic holiday TV special Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas (done here as a singalong) and other appropriate clips from Muppetland.

For a night of music and comedy, there's Aimee Mann & Ted Leo's Christmas tour stop at Town Hall on December 13 with Fred Armisen, The Bangles' Susanna Hoffs and geek-rocker Jonathan Coulton. Tickets for that show are still available.

Other previously mentioned holiday shows include Nick Lowe, John Waters, and the stacked WFMU Holiday Cheer Benefit with Conor Oberst, Natalie Merchant, The Felice Brothers, Laura Marling, The Lone Bellow and Jonathan Wilson.

For a little more traditional Holiday fun there's How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical at The Theater at MSG from December 5 through December 28. (tix).

Speaking of Emmet Otter, check out some great bloopers/outtakes from that Christmas special below...

Eugene Mirman Festival 2014 - Night 1 - Gowanus Idol
Eugene Mirman Festival 2014 - Night 1 - Gowanus Idol

The 7th Annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival began last night at the Bell House with a singing competition for comedians dubbed Gowanus Idol judged by festival founder Eugene Mirman along with Amy Schumer, NPR's This American Life host Ira Glass, and comedian Jon Glaser as Derrick Brown's dad. He took over as judge when Amy had to leave.

Tickets are still available to see 5 Comics to Watch Get on Variety's 10 Comics to Watch List featuring Mehran Khaghani, Michelle Wolf, Phoebe Robinson, Janelle James, Joe Zimmerman, host Josh Gondelman at Union Hall tonight, and for the Bell House's A Night of Cutie-Pies with Nick Thune, Jon Glaser, Karen Kilgariff, and SNL's new Weekend Update co-anchor Michael Che.

Spoiler: Bridget Everett won the competition. Catch her show at Joe's Pub called ROCK BOTTOM, which we saw last week. It's been extended until October 16th.

Bridget Everett - 'Rock Bottom' at Joe's Pub 9/12/2014
Bridgett Everett

Mr. Shaiman, who pounds away at the piano keys during the show, and Mr. Wittman, who directed it, and her other collaborators, Adam Horovitz and Matt Ray, have not attempted to impose a demure superego on the rampaging id that is Ms. Everett. On the contrary, "Rock Bottom" lets her run as loose and sing as loud as ever, celebrating the louche life and flaunting her flair for exhibitionism -- sexual, emotional and physical -- across 90 minutes of hair-raising, jaw-dropping and, yes, sometimes cringe-making performance. This unbridled performer makes the breast-baring, mouthy Bette Midler of the 1970s seem like Julie Andrews trilling and twirling on that mountaintop in "The Sound of Music."

Ms. Everett performs 10 songs in the show, at least three of which feature titles that are not fit for print. One of the funniest finds her making sport of her own ample dimensions while using a festively colored sex toy of considerable size as a prop to help detail her rapacious exploits around the globe. - [NY Times]

Bridget Everett seems to be everywhere in NYC lately, with the official debut of her new show at Joe's Pub, Rock Bottom (which has been in previews for a while). In addition to the New York Times review, she was also on the cover of the 9/10 issue of The Village Voice. The very bawdy show, which also features frequent collaborator and Beastie Boys member Adam Horovitz, plays select dates through October 16 at Joe's Pub. Tickets are on sale and all show dates are listed below. We caught Rock Bottom last Friday (9/12) and pictures from that are in this post.

There's no Rock Bottom show tonight, but you can catch Bridget Everett tonight (9/18) at The Bell House as part of the kickoff event at the 2014 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. Tonight's show is 'The Talent Show Presents: Gowanus Idol' and has a stacked lineup of talent, also featuring Amy Schumer, Dave Hill, Ira Glass, Bobby Tisdale, Derrick Brown, Amber Tamblyn, Joseph Keckler, Eliot Glazer, Giulia Rozzi, THE ENGAGEMENTS and hosts Elna Baker and Kevin Townley. Tickets are still available.

Rock Bottom show dates, plus more pics from the show and the Voice cover, below...

Eugene

What do Ira Glass, Michael Ian Black, Mike Birbiglia, and Neko Case have in common? They all made an appearance at last year's spectacular Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, Brooklyn's most well-curated, arbitrarily created comedy festival.

There's also two nights of Startalk Live! this year, one hosted by Bill Nye and one with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Like every EMCF, the best shows are always rife with special guests and secret additions. 2014 schedule, as it stands, is below and tickets go on sale Friday (8/8) at 1 PM. You can also buy, for the first time, a ($500) Eug Express Lane VIP Pass that gets you into all the shows and allows you to skip the line.

Champagne Jerry and Bridget Everett
Bridg and Champ

Known collaborators and Ad-Rock associates Champagne Jerry and Bridget Everett just got a little closer with the release of a new video, titled "Just Woke Up"...

Champagne Jerry, Max Tannone, Bridget Everett. They're all in your bedroom. You wake up. Early. Like at 5am. And boom. There they are. All three of them. Naked. Or dressed. Doesn't matter. Your choice. The TV is on in the background. A cooler with ice cold alcoholic beverages is within reach. Guess what, world? This is going to be the best morning of your life.
Watch the Jason Cacioppo-directed sexy video for Jerry's new Max Tannone-written single ("Starring: Bridget Everett, Champagne Jerry, and the Champagne"), below.

Catch Bridget Everett & Tender Moments after a set by Julie Klausner at Joe's Pub tonight (6/24).

Bridget is also at the intimate Manhattan club on August 6th (look out for Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz on bass, and of course Bridgett's titties).

Ted Leo associate Julie Klausner is also at Joe's Pub ALL THIS WEEK as part of a "Cabaret Situation" that "will feature a grown woman saying funny things, medleys of songs arranged suchly to make a point or to to just be pretty, and some visual "pow" that will leave your eyes both stimulated and lubricated."

Maybe you caught one of Champgane Jerry's monthly song release shows at Joe's Pub, like the one that just happened on 6/21 or the one on 4/3 with Ad-Rock. Maybe you didn't. Maybe you'll check out his next one on July 19, the day his full album is finally released. Maybe you won't. Jerry is also heading out on tour soon to "MAINE, MASSACHUSETTS, NEW YORK, MARYLAND, NORTH CAROLINA, GEORGIA, LOUISIANA, TEXAS", but those are the only details for now.

Check out the video below...

The National / M.I.A. / Deafheaven / crowd
Sasquatch Festival 2014 - Day 2
Sasquatch Festival 2014 - Day 2
Sasquatch Festival 2014 - Day 2
Sasquatch Festival 2014 - Day 2

For a moment there, it looked like The National's headlining set at Sasquatch - one of the band's biggest shows to date - was going to be underwhelming. For the first twenty minutes, the band felt too mellow, and frontman Matt Berninger, disinterested. And then, after "Don't Swallow The Cap", a switch seemingly went off in Berninger's head, and suddenly a middling National show turned into an outstanding, headlining-worthy triumph. After a furious "Afraid of Everyone", Berninger threw the first of many wine glasses (and later, bottles) into the air, walking away as it shattered on the ground. By the time he'd gotten to the always-intense "Squalor Victoria", he'd thrown his first microphone. By the end of main set closer "Mr. November", he'd attacked a stage banner, drank more wine, thrown a stage light, drank even more wine, dove into the crowd, crowdsurfed back, screamed at a sidestage LED screen, gone back into the crowd, drank wine (just to spit it out), and smashed whatever glass remained at that point. [KEXP]
We've already posted day 1 pictures of Washington state's 2014 Sasquatch music festival, and here's a set of day 2 (5/24), including shots of The National, Cut Copy, Tyler the Creator, Austra, M.I.A., Panda Bear, Neko Case, Washed Out, Deafheaven, Violent Femmes, The Dodos, First Aid Kit and more. Pictures continue below...

Bridget Everett

Bridget Everett & the Tender Moments released their debut, Pound It, last year a mix of rock and electrofunk with Everett's none-too-subtle come-ons front and center. She's just made a video for the album's opening track "What I Gotta Do?" which made its debut at her Joe's Pub show earlier this week (1/29) and makes its online premiere in this post.

"What I Gotta Do" is a question that there's more to -- which quickly becomes clear in the NSFW video, directed by 365GUY's Gregory Kramer and Timothy Reukauf. The video costars Everett's Tender Moments bandmates Carmine Covelli (of the Julie Ruin) and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz (who recently starred in a Champagne Jerry video too). Both do a good job as backup dancers. Look for faux Borscht Belt comedian Murray Hill too. You can watch it below.

And catch Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments monthly at Joe's Pub. Their next show is February 25. Tickets are on sale now.

Mikal Cronin at NXNE 2013 (more by David Andrako)
Mikal Cronin

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Mikal Cronin, The Entrance Band, Nude Beach @ Webster Hall
Having released one of the year's most acclaimed guitar pop albums (MCII), Mikal Cronin returns to NYC for his biggest show yet. The show's also got The Entrance Band, Nude Beach and "Special Guests," and economically priced $15 tickets are still available. This'll be a good show.

Red Fang, Cancer Bats, The Shrine, Indian Handcrafts @ Bowery Ballroom
This four-band metal tour is more of a heavy riff-rock thing than the kind of music that is often referred to as "metal" these days, but if you're the kind of person that rocks out to this stuff, this show is unmissable.

Chuck Inglish, Kings Dead, Tayyib Ali @ SOB's
The Cool Kids aren't up to much at the moment, but member Chuck Inglish has been having a very busy year, popping up as a guest on multiple tracks and putting out a few of his own releases too, one of the more notable ones being his EP with Ab-Soul and Mac Miller. He's been out on the road with Kings Dead and Tayyib Ali and tonight they hit NYC.

Reggie Watts @ Irving Plaza
Comedian, musician, loop pedal guru, Comedy Bang! Bang! bandleader -- Reggie Watts is one of a kind. Tonight's show is sold out.

Leif Vollebekk @ Rockwood Music Hall
This underrated Canadian singer-songwriter released his most recent album, North Americana, at the start of this year in Canada (it comes out in the US on 1/28/14) and its folky charms will work especially well at an intimate venue like Rockwood.

The Hairs, The Teen Age, Magneta Lane, Weekender, Bluffing @ Pianos
Toronto trio Magneta Lane headline this all-around solid bill that also includes indiepop bands The Teen Age and The Hairs.

Bridget Everett @ Joe's Pub
While she's been previewing her new show "Rock Bottom," lately, Bridgett Everett's performance tonight is a "regular" show with her band The Tender Moments (which features Adam "Ad-Rock" Horowitz on bass).

Howth, Caged Animals, Jeffrey Lewis and the Rain @ Union Pool
Tonight is a belated record release show for superior Brooklyn indie pop band Caged Animals' new album, In the Land of Giants, which came out back in September. Jeffrey Lewis is not to be missed either.

Sebastian Blanck @ The Standard, East Village
Sebastian Blanck was once a member of Black Dice, but now he makes equally experimental music on his own, and you can catch him playing that music tonight.

ShowYouSuck, Caleb James, Freeze-Tag @ Baby's All Right
ShowYouSuck is one of the more notable up-and-comers in Chicago's thriving rap scene at the moment. He hasn't hit Chance the Rapper or Chief Keef status yet, but catch him while he's still small at Baby's All RIght tonight.

Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's playing tonight, but you can check Max's Twitter.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Wesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding) is doing another of his Cabinet of Wonders variety shows at City Winery tonight, and this one features comedian Eugene Mirman, Cardigans singer Nina Persson, Chopped host Ted Allen, The Walkmen's Peter Bauer, Buffalo Tom singer Bill Janovitz, spoken word artist Beth Lisick, The Ice Storm author Rick Moody, and alt-country singer Jim White.

Beach Fossils wrap up their fall tour with this hometown show, featuring a killer undercard of Perfect Pussy and Habibi.

Jonathan Richman, Hilton Valentine @ Bowery Ballroom

Bear Hands, Canon Logic, Dead Stars, Desert Sharks @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar is a destination spot on the weekends, offering microbrew beer, a variety of food, holiday shopping and free music -- this week from Bear Hands, '90s indie rock lovers Dead Stars and more. You can also play ping pong or black light minigolf. Free.

Grant Hart, Journalism, Little Racer @ Cake Shop
Grant Hart may be not as popular as his former Husker Du bandmate Bob Mould, but he's still got an active solo career as well, which included the release of this year's well-received The Argument.

Celestial Shore, Zula, Banned Books, Laser Background @ Shea Stadium
This is a solid local lineup, including mathy indie pop band Celestial Shore and psych-pop band Zula.

Ancient Sky, Little Gold, Florida, Giant Peach @ Death By Audio
Local psych rock band Ancient Sky celebrate the release of their new album, All Get Out, tonight. You can stream it in full below.

Shannon and the Clams, Las Rosas @ Mercury Lounge

Slonk Donkerson, Butter The Children, Bluffing, Sunflower Bean @ Muchmore's

Whores, Black Black Black, No Way @ Saint Vitus
Whores make heavy noise rock, and it makes sense that they're playing a place like Brooklyn's mostly-metal bar Saint Vitus, but these guys appeal to a non-metal crowd too, with hints of Unsane, and other similar bands.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Ad-Rock and Champagne Jerry
Ad Rock and Champagne Jerry

Kathleen Hanna isn't feeling well, so her husband Adam Horovitz aka Ad-Rock will be filling in for her as DJ at MoMA's Pop Rally event tonight (11/21). Kim Gordon's group Body/Head also performs and tickets are still on sale.

You can still catch Kathleen soon though, but on the big screen, when "The Punk Singer" opens in theaters on 11/29 (maybe you caught the documentary as part of Doc NYC). Ad-Rock is also featured prominently in the film, and even filmed a scene.

It's not all DJing, movies and bass playing for Ad-Rock these days though. The former Beastie Boy reportedly also raps a few verses on a forthcoming track called "Yo Kev" that he co-wrote with rapper and performance artist Champagne Jerry who he has been collaborating with lately.

"CHAMPAGNE JERRY also known as Neal Medlyn is, by far, the greatest rapper in the world. He likes snacks, books, sexual intercourse, and rhyming."
If you don't know, now you know. Listen to "Tampa Realness" below - the track "was written by Champagne Jerry (lyrics) and Adam Ad Rock Horovitz (music) with additional production and mixing by Max Tannone. It is dedicated to the city of Tampa and all things neon, Four Loko, and teal. Adam wrote the beat on a plane to Hawaii, CJ wrote the lyrics on a bus in Brooklyn." Stay tuned for "Yo Kev".

"Tampa Realness" and "Yo Kev" will appear on Champagne Jerry's album For Real You Guys which is being rolled out one single at a time, and one monthly show in NYC at Joe's Pub at a time. The next show is December 7th and Ad-rock will be in the house, like he has been for many intimate shows at Joe's Pub in the past, sometimes with Bridget Everett who is also a Champagne Jerry collaborator, as is Carmine Covelli (who is in both Kathleen Hanna's band The Julie Ruin and Bridget Everett's band the Tender Moments) and Max Tannone (whose credits include Jaydiohead).

Bridget Everett and the Tender Moments next play Joe's Pub on 12/11 and 12/12.

We recently caught the Julie Ruin at Fun Fun Fun Fest and at MHOW, and not that long ago at Union Pool where Ad-Rock was reportedly seen hanging with Champagne Jerry.

Champagne Jerry music and videos below....

Bridget Everett

As you may know, Bridget Everett has had a monthly show at Joe's Pub for a while now with her band The Tender Moments (that includes Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz on bass). Many of the songs she's been performing regularly at Joe's Pub, as well as some new ones too, form the basis of Everett's new show, Rock Bottom, which she co-wrote with Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman and Horovitz. The synopsis:

In Rock Bottom, "early Bette Midler" (NY Times) Bridget Everett barrels through life tip-toeing toward disaster, wine bottle by wine bottle and man by man. Instead of succumbing to her chardonnay-induced stupor, Bridget embraces a series of revelations that lead this voice of an angel to redemption. Rock Bottom is what happens when you're too passionate to give up, and too big to fail.
Rock Bottom, which Horovitz is apart of, will have its first performances at Joe's Pub on October 30 and November 1 & 2. Tickets are on sale now.

In other news, Bridget Everett & the Tender Moments release their new CD, Pound It next week, and will play a release party at Joe's Pub on Tuesday (10/1). Tickets are on sale now. She'll also be a special guest at Patti Lupone's Carnegie Hall show on November 7 (tickets) and she'll be at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin too.

Meanwhile, even sooner than all of that, she'll appear at The Bell House on Saturday (9/28) for Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler's Hot Tub show, as part of Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. That show is sold out.

All dates are listed below...

Dave Hill, Phil Anselmo, a goat
Dave and Phil

Who are Bridget Everett & the Tender Moments? To quote the NY Times:

Multiply the mouthy, flesh-jiggling early Bette Midler by one hundred, give her the super-plus-size figure and fashion sense of Divine, the John Waters diva, and the manners of a Flintstone, and you've got a rough approximation of Bridget Everett, the alt-cabaret star who roared around the stage of Joe's Pub...
That's a review from a recent Joe's Pub show and if you missed it, you have three more chances including tonight (7/31).

Who are the Tender Moments? Well, they would be Bridgett's band members: Mike Jackson on guitar; Adam Horovitz, a k a Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, on bass; Matt Ray on piano; and Carmine Covelli on drums. The bassist needs no introduction. You might recognize some of the other names from Ad-Rock's wife Kathleen Hanna's new band The Julie Ruin (who announced a small show of their own today).

What does Dave Hill have to do with this? He also happens to be a regular guest at Bridgett Everett shows! He joined them at their last two Joe's Pub gigs and will do so again tonight. He'll also join the Tender Moments on stage at Outside Lands in San Francisco on Saturday, August 10th. It's one of three performances Dave is doing at the California fest on The Barbary stage, and only part of his whole Outside Lands itinerary which also includes hosting the SoundWave stage with us like he did at Firefly Fest (but won't be doing at Lollapalooza).

Why is Dave Hill pictured with Phil Anselmo and a goat on the top of this post? Because Phil (when not promoting a new music project) and Dave (when not investigating the royal baby) are currently filming a new sure-to-be both metal and hilarious online series for Adult Swim! it's called Metal Grasshopper and it will premiere later this year!

Where can I meanwhile see Dave Hill rock out? As mentioned, you can catch him at Joe's Pub, but for a more proper Dave Hill rock show, head to Mercury Lounge on Friday night (8/2) where his band rock band Valley Lodge will be performing. You can listen to their power pop hits at Soundcloud.

P.S. Paperback lovers take note: Dave's book "Tasteful Nudes" comes out as a paperback on Sept 3.

Another glorious pic of Dave and Phil and Phil Anselmo tour dates, below...
