The Classic Crime

The local Tooth & Nail rock outfit The Classic Crime is used to sharing the stage with pop-punk bands like This Providence and Eclectic Approach. More incongruous is tonight’s inclusion of the folksy indie trio Ravenna Woods -- regulars at the Tractor and the Sunset, the Showbox SoDo will be the biggest venue Ravenna Woods has played in this city. “It'll be a very eclectic night for sure, but that’s what a good show is, in my opinion,” says Classic Crime frontman Matt MacDonald. All four bands will play a Christmas tune each, TCC’s choice being John and Yoko’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).” Hopefully the evening will alleviate some of the holiday stress that inevitably comes with the season. “Santa is a fraud,” says MacDonald. “He never got me a Power Wheels truck in second grade, and I've never forgiven him. Plus, if you switch the letters around in his name it spells Satan. Coincidence? I think not.” ERIN K. THOMPSON
