Gifts have been exchanged, toasts made, family feasting enjoyed and conflicts kept to a minimum; the kids are passed out in their beds, dreams of all the new crap they’ve gotten dancing in their heads. Mom and dad are in for the week, and encourage you to get out for a bit, so you make a beeline for New World (and the 19th overall Christmas night event hosted by Ulrey and Co.), one of the few places not closed on the holiday because of New Granada’s Xmas Night Extravaganza. Now in its ninth year at New World, the local tradition finds area indie rock bands performing for those of us wanting or needing to get out of the house on the holiday. Two New Granada bands that released albums on the label this year head up the festivities: Alexander & the Grapes, a four-piece that mixes up the sounds of warm psychedelic folk rock, ’90s alternative and thoughtful indie pop on debut full-length, Hemispheres; and King of Spain, a duo made up of Matt Slate and Daniel Wainright who delivered their latest electro-pop experimentations on sophomore LP, All I Did Was Tell Them the Truth and They Thought It Was Hell. Warm up by Alaskus, a St. Louis-by-way-of-Tampa tropi-psych rock twosome featuring Sleepy Vikings formers Nicole Schleif (guitar, lap steel) and Sandra Lolo (guitar, vocals, drums).
