The Landlady Holiday Spectacular

There’s always this weird hum in the air whenever you get enough bands in a room to collaborate – a lot of tension, a lot of accolades, a heap of libido. The Landlady Holiday Spectacular stuffed 12 bands in one room. If you ride a wave of one too many stale live shows, you can start to forget why you trek out in the rain through a three-subway-transfer to watch some schmo with a synth, but then a night like this horse-kicks you back and you remember why small bands keep making music.

The aforementioned Landlady said it all in a drawn breath: “We just want someone to turn on.”
