It sure as hell didn't feel like Christmas to me until Thursday night. Yes, I dealt with the crowds ransacking Target for stocking-stuffers. I even heard myself spout of the obligatory comment about how a small, college-era stint in retail killed most holiday music for me. But it took the Christmas miracle of Kinch hitting the stage at Rhythm Room wearing Santa hats and beards that looked to be assembled from printer paper and cotton balls that finally made it all sink in.
If you've had the pleasure of seeing Kinch live, you already know that they were phenomenal. This year's Kinchmas was no exception. Also amazingly good were local boys Ladylike who ended their performance with a couple of shirtless dudes the band and audience with fistfuls of snow confetti.
Missed the show? Here's a small peak at what went down.
