Last night at a sold-out Mercury Lounge, Wormburner was joined onstage by Gordon Gano of The Violent Femmes. We performed Gordon’s original Christmas song “Merry Christmas, Brother”. Here’s some great video footage. A concert-goer also captured video of Wormburner’s own original Christmas song The Bells of St. Ignatius. Thanks everyone for a fantastic 2012! We’ll have a new record out in 2013.
The date is set for our Annual Christmas Show! Join us at The Mercury Lounge on Thursday December 20th for a full Wormburner set followed by an all-star lineup of guests performing your favorite yuletide classics. As usual, Lifeguard Nights will open the show. And our friends in East River Bandits will celebrate their debut record release. Doors open at 7:00PM. Advance tickets are only $12.

Here’s Brooklyn Vegan providing great coverage (and PHOTOS!!) of our recent show with The War on Drugs and Dean & Britta. The Dean & Britta set featured a stunning guest appearance by Sean Eden, effectively re-uniting the band LUNA who played their last show together back in 2005.
Wormburner was just featured on MTV’s “120 Minutes”. Check out Hank’s chat with pioneering VJ Matt Pinfield.
