A quick hit for a holiday parody legend
I don't know how I managed to not know about these guys, but are a nearly quarter-century legend in the Philadelphia area. They're going to be playing live on Philly's alt-rock radio station, WXPN-FM, on Christmas Eve; check their page for more details. Looks like they've been making parody holiday songs in the vein of the Capitol Steps for quite a long time, so check them out. (I'm using this post as a sort of string around my finger to go back and do a more considered post on them at a later time.) UPDATE: Amy Guskin of Bah and the Humbugs says I should soft-pedal the parody angle; while they have done one or two such numbers, the emphasis is on original holiday material. Hopefully we'll have that expanded post I promised soon, as they're getting ready to mark their silver anniversary in 2010.
