No Country Presents: 5th Annual Christmas Caroling Show at The 5 Spot on Dec. 17

nocountryxmas2016-620

It’s hard to believe it’s the holidays already. While that may mean stress and anxiety for some shoppers, it means a joyful and merry time to us, and nothing better exemplifies that spirit than our annual Christmas Caroling Show. For this, our 5th year, we move our celebration to The 5 Spot (RIP The Stone Fox) on Dec. 17 to bring you a night full of Christmas tunes and caroling fun with more than a dozen of your favorite local bands.

Those of you who have joined us in the past will remember arm in arm singing, shenanigans, laughs galore, tons of booze, and some awesome takes on the holiday standards.  This year we can expect the same from some repeat performers like ELEL, Alanna Royale, Jung YouthTetherballHot Tub Club, Beech Benders, Yankee Blood, Sad Baxter, and Luella!  This year also features some fresh blood from the likes of Ron Gallo, Kai Welch, Skyway Man, Floralorix, Bill Eberle, J. Human, Derick Hultquist & more to be announced soon!  And, of course, no caroling evening would be complete without Mr. Steve The Music Man carrying us out in a full on, some of us slurring, sing-a-long.

Want more?  No problem.  This sucker is FREE!  That’s right.  Come one, come all to this celebration of friends and music at The 5 Spot starting at 8 p.m. on Dec. 17!

As we do every year, we’ll get in the spirit of the holidays with a charitable drive. This year we’ll collect food for Second Harvest Food Bank, so bring unopened, non-perishable items to the show with you, and we’ll make sure they get to folks in need. Hint: the most needed items are peanut butter, canned meat (chicken or tuna), canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta, and cereal.

We’ll have more to come on this one as the date approaches, but you can keep up with all the action right here at the Facebook event page.  Think you’ll hear anyone cover Adam Sandler’s “Christmas Song” this year?  You never know, but we would imagine that all you scrooges will at least get another taste of  CRUDBUMP’s NSFW “Fuck You If You Don’t Like Christmas” at some point during the night.
