Butler, Bernstein, and the Hot 9's third-annual Gotham Holiday Swing event is going down once again on December 18 at Town Hall, celebrating "the holiday season with a swingin' program of New York and New Orleans tunes old and new."

New York Dolls frontman David Johansen is hosting in his Buster Poindexter guise, and there's quite the eccentric lineup. Soul vet Lee Fields and back-in-action psych rockers Mercury Rev join a bill of Madeleine Peyroux, Hal Willner, Terry Reid, Raul Midon, Carole Buffard and Basya Schechter. Tickets are available.

The show will also feature a food drive at the town hall in partnership with City Harvest, so bring a canned good or two!
