Episode 110: The Third First-Ever Half Machine Holiday Show - 12/22/2019

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#110’ on it.

Our third holiday show had a bit of a rocky start, but we pulled through with a mix of Christmas tracks. Then we had a set of morbid holiday songs and a couple of tracks in honor of Hannukah. That was followed with a Winter Solstice-themed mix of post-punk and black metal. We played a set of “Christmas Mourning” songs. We followed that up with a set of tracks about/referencing Krampus. Then we ended the show with a mix of somber and raucous holiday music.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hannukah—or Happy Wednesday if you celebrate neither of those!
