JD McPherson played at the two level venue Black Cat in Washington, D.C. this past weekend on his new holiday album tour. The new album Socks mixes McPherson’s 50’s radio rock’n’roll style with original Christmas songs such as the album title song “Socks” and the single “Bad Kid.” Check out this album for some original holiday songs to twist and jive to.
Opening for McPherson was Eddie Angel’s Guitar Party. The band, garbed in red turtlenecks and Santa hats, played behind Eddie who was flaunting his golden luchadore costume. The bizarre mix of wrestling and holiday theme made for a lively set.
