Merry Christmas from Christine and the Boys
Marah played three fantastic Christmas this shows this weekend. First, on Friday, December 7th, they played a packed TLA on South St. in Philly, opening with "Limb," debuting "Wilderness," and putting on an amazing show from start to finish, with excellent support from the Shalitas on backing vocals, the Matt Cappy Quartet on horns, and Jeff "Coolerman" Clark on bagpipes. This was followed by another triumphant show in New York City at the Bowery Ballroom on Saturday. But perhaps most special at all was the show at Drew's in Ringwood, NJ on Sunday. After some technical problems and a terrible weather forecast, the band played on with a special show for fans, friends, and family. The result was a loose atmosphere and a really fun setlist and from that we got one of the very best videos on this blog, Ms. Christine Smith singing "Santa Baby." Enjoy and merry Christmas everyone.
