If ever there was a reason to stop resisting the spirit of the season, like I've been, it's Seattle's rawest Rolling Stones cover band--and Seattle Weekly's Best Cover Band of 2012--throwing a holiday show. "The Rolling Stones" are headlining the Tractor this Saturday, December 22, and the band's Jordan Blilie and Justin Deary got in touch to let us know what to expect.
What are you doing to Christmas-ify this show?
JB: The stage will be constructed entirely of candy canes. The bar will just be an egg nog fountain that circulates into an egg nog slip 'n' slide. Mistletoe everywhere. We'll have ol' timey orphans in newsie caps and coal-stained cheeks peering in through the window. Special guests include: Ernest, Tim Allen as Santa Claus, Raven Simone, and Salem from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Will you be playing Christmas songs?
JB: I'm pretty sure "Brown Sugar" is about some kind of gingerbread recipe.
Can you tell me what outfits you'll be wearing?
JD: Whipped cream.
What are you getting each other for Christmas?
JB: The gift of song, naturally.
Would you like people to dress up for this show?
JD: Yes, we would like folks to dress some type of Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza/Festivus figure i.e. elf, reindeer, Walmart employee, hobo, or whatever you think makes you most attractive to your preferred partner(s). Toe shoes are strongly discouraged.
How do you think the Rolling Stones are celebrating Christmas this year?
JD: Hot tub.
"The Rolling Stones" headline the Tractor this Saturday, December 22 at 9:30 p.m. Dancer and Prancer, Tacocat, and DJ Mike Nipper will open. Tickets are $10 and available for purchase (presale always recommended for these dudes) here.
