Yes, it’s a fresh holiday hit by former Albanian Stephen Clair and his band the Pushbacks. Now based in Beacon, Clair & Co. are headed into Colony in Woodstock on Thursday night (November 30).

Back in the ’90s, Clair (aka Steve Ferguson) was a major mover ‘n’ shaker on the Albany music scene, playing in a variety of bands (Glaze, Cactus Loveseat, Wag, Sabotage & the Wrecking Crew, to name a few), publishing books of poetry, editing and publishing the audio-cassette magazine Talk Work, running the Central Avenue music venue Godfrey’s and more.
