'Twas the week before Christmas, and throughout Sea-town;
Boys and girls made plans, waiting for local bands to get down.

Skerik by Jon Haring
12.20.03 at the Crocodile Cafe, while agreed the place is snooty,
Is scheduled to host this years' all-star Yulebooty!
With Skerik and Reggie [Watts], Davey, CD, and Thad
Dara and Elisabeth, to miss it would be sad.
Rump shakin' good times visiting with family and friends,
The first of four nights with predictably great ends.

Sunday, the next night [12.21.03], can be spent at the Tractor
Earth's greatest rock n' roll band with one altered factor.
A new drummer, but fear not, the rest are the same,
The Supersuckers beckon – you'll be glad you came.
Straight up rock meets beer-drinking, country hoedown,
Wry lyrics, reckless antics; a true show will abound.

And if by then, you have not had your fix,
Skerik's Syncopated Taint plays the Tractor on December 26th.
Five big, wide horns, flute, drums, and keys
With influences a plenty, you'll dig what you see.
Skerik again with Hans, John [Wicks], and Joe,
Between this and Christmas, you'll want for nothing, it'll be a hell of a show.

Maktub by Bruce Moore
And if you stay local on the eve of 2004,
Consider joining Maktub to ring in one more.
Head down to the EMP's bar, the Liquid Lounge,
To see the soul of Seattle's New Years throw down.

Hope the holidays treat you well, I wish you the best
Going home for the holidays, or a similar quest.
But if you lack plans or are feeling a bit addled,
Drop everything and come party in Seattle!
