Indie Rock Elf Recommends: 5th Annual Yule Benefit

Hi! It’s me, the KEXP Yule Benefit Indie Rock Elf. If you don’t remember me, I was the drunken, mischievous sidekick to that sad excuse for a Santa Claus at last year’s gloriously wild Yule Benefit. I remember it like it was yesterday...Oh, the music...the people...the whiskey. Sweet, sweet, horrible whiskey. I’ve been in hibernation for the better part of the year. There’s really no use for elves of my type outside of the holiday season, so Santa got me all set up in wonderful cell, er, room out in Granger.

Here I am, in my “room” with my off-season “nourishment”:

And here I am with some leftover pie I begged off a kind stranger:

But it’s finally time once again to spread the KEXP yule-tide cheer! So, I’ve been let out of my cage and am slowly reaclimating to things like society and daylight. Look for me or some of my elvin friends around town this week and next getting ready for the 2007 KEXP Yule Benefit!

    It’s not everyone who can look good behind chicken wire...

    They’ll be flocking to the Yule now, Indie Elfboy!

    The candles (or fires in cans) behind the chickenwire are my favorite part. Other than the revelation that Santa’s elves have signed a shoe/apparel deal with Adidas, that is...

    I didn’t plan ahead so good, Indie! I brought my laptop but no food! Ooooh, what I wouldn’t give for some of that nourishment right about now! The locals peddle “hot dogs”, but my magical elven dance isn’t enough for him to part with even one... not even an overcooked dachshund! Save me some pie and I’ll save you a place in line!
