If you caught Nick Lowe’s fab Quality Holiday Revue in concert at The Egg last year, you’re definitely gonna wanna check this out – Nick Lowe’s classic Cajun stomper “Half a Boy and Half a Man” with those Nashville twang-soaked masked marauders Los Straitjackets, led by guitarslinger and Rensselaer native Eddie Angel.

Well, it turns out that they had such a good time together on last year’s tour that they’re gonna do it again this holiday season. Sadly, they won’t be returning to Greater Nippertown on this go-round; it looks like the closest they’ll getting to us is the Visulite Theater in Charlotte, Virginia on Thursday, December 3.

The good news, however, is that they recorded the Boston stop on last year’s tour, and Yep Roc Records is scheduled to release Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets’ The Quality Holiday Revue Live album on Black Friday, November 27.

And don’t forget – before he hits the road on the Quality Holiday Tour, Lowe is scheduled for a solo concert at Club Helsinki in Hudson at 8pm on Wednesday, October 7. Josh Rouse opens the show, and tickets are still available, priced at $45 & $65.
