Merry Christmas to one and all at each and every nook and cranny of the globe!
“This Christmas” is a holiday song released back in 2000 to the special few that made it to Milwaukee’s Miramar Theater for a then-annual concert, “A Very Milky Christmas”. This one featured Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio performing songs even from his old band Tuesday, Davey von Bohlen of The Promise Ring, Eef Barzelay of Clem Snide and Travis Morrison of The Dismemberment Plan. The following years saw Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie (and his Avril Lavigne cover) and Low. Needless to say, it was always a special gathering thrown by the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s wonderful radio station, WMSE.
For a treat, here’s an archive.org download of Low’s complete 2003 set.
