Tav Falco's Blue Christmas Tour

We do say Christmas, because they do and while of course we have favorites and undermine our credibility with that - a Tav Falco tour should not go undocumented. Also, anything, anything with even a marginal Christmas connection gets our nod within the next 30 days. God knows I need to celebrate something...

Tav's in Town

Tav Falco, the man, the legendary semi-obscure (to some) singer and film maker, is dropping his mask, (ha! ha!) with shows throughout Europe this Christmas. The Tav Falco and the Unapproachable Panther Burns' Blue Christmas Tour has four dates scheduled so far, so one should be in your neighborhood if you happen to live in or near Toulouse, Paris, Geneva or Biel. 

We never go out, but supposing you do, one of the hot spots below should be worth going to.

Full Itinerary:
Friday December 10th: Lieu Commun, Toulouse
Saturday December 11th: Les Combustible, Paris
Friday December 17th: L'Usine, Geneva
Saturday December 18th: L'Etage, Biel

Meanwhile, to whet your appetite, to get you reaching for your coat and hat, to get you out of the door, I unreservedly recommend checking out Tav/Panther Burns' absolutely gorgeous Ballad of the Rue de la Lune here on... MySpace/PantherBurns. Turn it up annoyingly loud too.

The 5 Minute Interview Lux and Ivy of the Cramps
Unlike many "rockabilly" thug poseurs (hello, Mike Ness), the Cramps are the real deal - the Ohio-bred band is worlds apart from the everyday sounds of neo-folk and the canned beats of hip-hop.

You're more of a rock person, but you "like hip-hop, too," don't you? Sure you do! Open up your zippered CD case and check inside.
