Once the presents are open and your family members become unbearable, there aren’t a lot of “going out” options for revelers on Christmas night. Local Rock/R&B/Pop crew The Guitars remedied that situation when they began hosting a free Christmas show. Thursday marks The Guitars’ fifth annual Christmas performance at MOTR Pub.
The band has a fairly substantial collection of holiday tunes in its repertoire, some of which can be heard on its 2009 release, A Very Guitars Christmas, which includes great versions of Christmas classics like “Run, Rudolph, Run,” “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)” and “Don’t Believe in Christmas,” a down-and-dirty ditty by Pacific Northwest Garage Rock pioneers The Sonics.
On Thursday, the band will also reportedly be unveiling a new Xmas cover tune — Wizzard’s “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.”
