If you crave Christmas spirit but feel traditional fare has lost its luster, then The New Standards are the answer. This is a fearless and funny night out for the evolved music lover who embraces all musical styles and eras – and also has discriminating taste.
Ringleaders Chan Poling (The Suburbs), John Munson (Semisonic), and Steve Roehm (Billy Goat) cross-pollinate sardonic rock/pop aesthetic with surprise Alaska guest stars. The result is quirky beauty. With true post-genre attitude, they take on the likes of Adam Ant, Britney Spears, Kurt Weill, and Cheap Trick, connecting everything to the Christmas core of goodwill and gratitude.
So if you’d appreciate a big band version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and disco dancing Christmas trees, join this rockin’ party and ring in the yule with style.
Ticket sales start on August 19. Discounted rates available when purchasing a subscription.
