Christmas in Tucson CD Release show
Friday, December 14th 9:00PM
Oh, the holiday desert tradition of hanging lights on a cactus, bundling up in our long sleeves shirts and sitting on a bus as it tours Winterhaven…sigh, we can’t believe it’s already that time of year again.
In true Tucson form, local artists decided to put together an all-star redux of our favorite yuletide singalongs with some Old Pueblo flavor for a noble cause: The Primavera Foundation , which sows the seeds of change by strengthening lives, building communities and advocating for social justice.
World renowned Swiss artist and Tucson resident Olivier Mosset has been a long-time supporter of the Tucson music scene. As a follow-up to the “We Got Cactus” tour ( http://wegotcactus.free.fr ), which he co-sponsored, Mosset asked his ex-wife, former gallery owner and ex-MOCA director Elizabeth Cherry to organize a CD around a holiday theme. Twenty-two bands stepped up to the plate with covers and original songs for the CD “Christmas in Tucson.”
Come on down and hear the whole entire album performed live, you heard it right — no need to clean out your eardrums — the whole album live. Not once, but TWICE. BAM! We said it, it’s going to happen. And and and, not only is the cover only $5, but for just $10 bucks you also get a bona fide original Christmas in Tucson CD so you can listen to it from the comfort of your southwest patterned couch!.
