Switched On Christmas
For the past few years, Venus Hum have made a habit of putting on a special Christmas show every December. It shouldn't come as a surprise that they're big on the holidays; their second ever release was the Switched On Christmas EP (currently available on iTunes), a fun collection of electro-pop takes on several seasonal classics. This year's outing will feature The Bees as their special guest, and according to Bees frontman Daniel Tashian's blog, the two bands have collaborated on a Christmas song that will be debuted tommorrow night at the Mercy Lounge. Schedule conflicts and illness have prevented me from making it to their past couple of Christmas shows, so I'm excited that tommorrow night my calendar is free and I'm relatively healthy (knock on wood).
