The Hounds’ Holiday Howl

“Last year, Christmas trees sparked 255 fires in North Carolina,” a concerned Hounds of the Wild Hunt told me in a recent email, continuing, “House fires are 14 percent more likely to happen during the holidays and 30 percent more likely to result in deaths.” They also say their favorite Christmas carols are the Sonics’ “Don’t Believe in Christmas” (“Well sure enough, don’t know you know/ The fat boy didn’t show”) and the Murder City Devils’ “364” (“The bullshit flows, the bullshit flows”). But dour statistics and Grinchy tunes aside, even the Hounds are still getting with the season and hosting their own holiday revue, a raucous night of Seattle’s best pummeling garage rock and whatever else it takes to get you in the goddamn Yuletide spirit.
