Erin McKeown's Anti-Holiday Spectacular

JEFF ROSENBERG
9 pm., Thursday December 12 | $10.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 
[SCROOGE FOLK] Well, it’s about time somebody said something. Pint-sized powerhouse folkie Erin McKeown calls out Kris Kringle for his blatant anti-Semitism—not to mention his sugar addiction, unsafe coal-mining practices and general perversity—on “Santa Is an Asshole,” one of the twisted carols that make up F*ck That! Erin McKeown’s Anti-Holiday Album. The 2011 collection, celebrated on McKeown’s current tour, puts the “hum” in “humbug” with tuneful ditties attacking the “Amurrica”-nization of Christmas (“Christmas [Love It or Leave It]”), awkward family holidays (“Frozen Smiles,” “It’s a Very Queer Christmas”) and PC euphemisms (“You Wish Us a Happy Holidays”).
