Premiering today exclusively at CVU is Scott Lucas & The Married Men‘s cover of John McCauley of Deer Tick‘s “Christmas In A Chinese Restaurant.” The live cut comes from the band’s third annual Hideout Holiday Music Hour event, which took place earlier this month on December 9th.
The full holiday concert will be in broadcast rotation at the official Married Men site beginning at 4PM on Christmas Eve, where it will remain for streaming for a limited time. The event saw Lucas covering Christmas cuts like ”Last Christmas” and “Run Run Rudolph,” as well as original Married Men compositions. Joining the band on select tracks was fellow Chicago act Purple Apple.
“The whole idea is to have it on in the background while you’re wrapping last minute presents by the Christmas tree or whatever,” Lucas reveals of the broadcast. “It’s meant to be like an audio Yule Log. A companion to your little family get together, perhaps? Or if you wanna listen to it while you sit around getting drunk alone — that’s fine, too.”
