Top 5 Must-See Phoenix Shows This Christmas Week
Snake! Snake! Snakes! - Crescent Ballroom - Wednesday, December 25
Granted, if you don't have Christmas dinner waiting for you anyplace in particular--or you just eat early and are interested in preparing to get out of the house before the small-talk sets in--Snake! Snake! Snakes! has you covered with a free show that probably does not involve our erstwhile music editor.
If your first exposure to Snake! Snake! Snakes! is the exclamation points, you're likely to misperceive them--they're more like a less theatrically depressed, more anthemic Interpol, shouting choruses deliberately over smooth, propulsive beats and echoing guitar. You could certainly find worse bands to prepare you for the abrupt transition from Christmas music to New Years music.
