Mint Records Announces 'Ridiculously Early Xmas Parties'
Over at Mint Records, Christmas doesn’t just come early, it comes ridiculously early. And to prove it, the Vancouver label is throwing the appropriately titled Ridiculously Early Xmas Party. On December 5 and 6, Mint will be getting festive and putting on two Christmas shindigs in its hometown, featuring such fine Left Coast acts as the Pack A.D., Young and Sexy, Novillero, Hot Panda and, last but not least, Nardwuar’s Evaporators.

Like last year, not only will these CiTR-presented shows bring the rock but the first 75 punters through the door will get a ridiculously early Christmas gift. Also, on December 5 (aka Nardwuar Nite), the Human Serviette will open his "Video Vault” of interviews and show them on the big screen, meaning you’ll have a chance to see Nardwuar grill such celebs as Snoop Dogg, Henry Rollins, Blur, Iggy Pop, Michael Moore and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Advance tickets are now on sale in Vancouver, with all door proceeds going to benefit the ALS Society of Canada. For more info, visit Mint’s website.
