Mr. Jimmy and the Spaceship of the Imagination's Synthesized Xmas Spectacular feat. Chris Crofton, Tristen, Courtney Tidwell, Mackenzie Green, Bobby Bare Jr, Patrick Sweaney, Ri¢hie & more
By the time you’ve been shopping, wrapping, trimming, baking and wearing goofy sweaters for weeks, one more morsel of holiday cheer doesn’t exactly sound like tidings of comfort and joy. Well, Charlie Brown, you can stop sweating those jolliness brownouts right now, because sincere Christmas music advocate and keyboardist extraordinaire Mr. Jimmy Matt Rowland has announced the glorious return of the Spaceship of The Imagination. A few Christmases ago, this massive all-synthesizer band delighted crowds with loving, over-the-top Day-Glo takes on traditional tunes. The latest incarnation rolls six-wise-men-deep, with local badasses Micah Hulscher, Doni Schroder, Peter Wallace, Catfish Taylor and Deer Tick’s Rob Crowell. If that weren’t spectacle enough, they’re part of a musical pageant that includes Richie Kirkpatrick as Joseph, Birdcloud’s Makenzie Green as Mary, and performances by Tristen, Cortney Tidwell, Bobby Bare Jr., Patrick Sweany and many more. David Bermudez and Chris Crofton are your MCs, and Jerry Pentecost DJs your dance party ’til the reindeer come home.
