Live Ledge #93: Christmas
By email@example.com on December 22, 2012
Besides talking about the St. Paul Graham Parker concert Scott saw earlier this week, tonight is all about punk rock Christmas songs. For the 3rd straight year, Hudson ignores the sentimental garbage and piles on the edgier side of the holidays.
