Where It's At: Xmas 2k4 pt. Uno

Sassy & the Wolf are honored to help you make the most of the holiday rock season at the 3rd Annual Holiday Sounds & Spirits Spectacular this Thursday at the Magic Stick in fabulous Day-twah (4140 Woodward Ave. 313-833-9700).

Not only will we help "keep stuff moving" in our inimitable fashion, but we'll also be performing as our, er, alter Super-egos the Night Moves.

Honestly, this is one of the funnestest nights of the year -- each band gets like 5 minutes to rock the mic with their version of holiday cheer -- and the proceeds go to COTS (Coalition on Temporary Shelter). Also, the show will feature the world premiere of a scintillating new film entitled "The Skinniest Santa." We wish we could tell you more, but modesty prevents us.

The stage(s) will be graced by some of our favorite bands and singahs evah, including:

The Dirtbombs
The Paybacks
Brendan Benson
Outrageous Cherry
Rosie Thomas
The Volebeats
The Sirens
The Fondas
The Hentchmen
The Come Ons
Thunderbirds Are Now!
The Holy Fire
His Name Is Alive
Saturday Looks Good to Me
American Mars

Admission is $15, 18 and older please. Doors at 8, music at 9 sharp!

Join us, won't you?

Mixed Bizzness

So, like, I'm totally detoxing right now. Like, purification style. Nothing new for me, I do it every year just before I go on the bender to end all benders that is "The Holiday Season." So many free drinks, so little sleeping time, so much chocolate. Hot damn I love the holidays!
If it weren't for this show, I'd have nothing to rein me in. Nothing to keep me from achieving total "party" bliss. Screw Sassy & the Wolf, I say. But my dad will stop sending the checks if I don't keep this "internship." blahblahblah. Only two more years till I get a sweet gig "working" at his company. Then it's all liquid lunch all the time. And Sassy & the Wolf and their "radio program" will be a fading memory (fading faster when I'm double fisting tumblers of Bombay Sapphire). Suckerzzz.
anyhoo, the stuff. the annotated (by sassy ,not me) playlist.

Sleepy Kid > Monday Morning Smile *not from Detroit, but he thanks Patrick Greenhorne in the lyrics, so he's only really three degrees separated, plus he sounds like the lost Waxwing, which leads us to...

Waxwings> Steady As Starlight
MHz > Secret Santa *An early Christmas gift - from Flying Bombs Surprise Package series.
