Like it or not Christmas is just around the corner, with the festive cheer poised to pounce as soon as the supermarkets sell out of pumpkins; and in some places even before!
Don't get me wrong, Christmas is, as the old adage goes, the most wonderful time of the year. Yet there can seem amidst all the adverts and shopping a sickly feel of commercialism on cocaine. So it's good when things come along that you genuinely have no problem spending money on, such as Christmas party gigs from one of Scotland's finest post-rock foursomes Campfires In Winter.
On Wednesday 17th December in the stunning surroundings of Glasgow's Sloans GrandBallroom, Campfires In Winter will host the first Campfires' Christmas Party with help from a few friends and some special guest collaborations. Support comes from alternative popsters Friends In America and garage rock noise makers Deathcats. And like all good Christmas parties the fun will continue into the evening with a heavy dose of drunken dancing, the tunes for which will be spun by the The Twilight Sad.
To help make the Christmas party special each ticket comes with a hand signed Christmas card, and gig goers will be greeted with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie on arrival. And if that isn't enough how about a brass band playing Christmas songs, as well as a photo booth as well. Photo booths and mulled wine... I predict some messy photos!
Tickets are on sale now at the early bird price of £10 at www.campfiresinwinter.bigcartel.com
