Three Imaginary Girls Holiday Party

Three Imaginary Girls' local music blog may specialize in coverage of "sparkly indie-pop," but this year's edition of its annual holiday showcase offers a fair amount of variety. Headliner Eef Barzelay, best known as the singer of New York-based alt-country band Clem Snide, pens mournful, solo acoustic tunes, while Illinois' The Heliogoats play a straightforward variety of folk rock. Local quartet Mal De Mar, whose easygoing power-pop resembles that of the Lonely Forest, comes closest to living up to TIG's mission statement. Seattle Weekly columnist John Roderick will be in attendance before the show, donning Santa garb and posing for photos courtesy of SW photographer Laura Musselman. ANDREW GOSPE
