The video for “Must Be Santa,” off Bob Dylan’s deranged new Christmas album, features ol’ Bob gallivanting around in a Santa hat, and as such is required viewing. He’s at United Palace Theatre tonight for the first of a three-night stand. Man this is gonna be bizarre. You better watch out.
In other big-shot news, current Jack White dalliance the Dead Weather take over Music Hall of Williamsburg, hopefully keeping the gunplay to a minimum. Or, in the tremendously likely event you don’t have tix for either, try weirdo Philly folkie Kurt Vile at Europa, or subversively sweet pop tarts A Camp at (le) poisson rouge. Peruse our chat with the latter’s Nina Persson here. Free entry with Santa hat.*
