The Vandals To Release 25th Annual Christmas Formal

It’s been a Holiday tradition for a quarter of a century now; punk rock icons, The Vandals, put on a high energy, hit-packed Christmas concert to celebrate the Spirit Of The Season and all things punk rock. Well, things went a little sideways in recent years, but the boys weren’t going to let a little global pandemic get in the way of their yuletide mission. So in lieu of performing before a live audience, the band filmed their entire 2020 Holiday show in HD video, recorded it with crystal clear audio and are now releasing it as a very special multi-media concert extravaganza! 

The Vandals

25th Annual Christmas Formal finds The Vandals – bassist Joe Escalante, guitarist Warren Fitzgerald, vocalist Dave Quackenbush and drummer Josh Freese – performing not only the many beloved holiday classics they’ve written over the year, such as “Christmastime For My Penis,” “My First Christmas As A Woman,” and the now perennial classic “Oi To The World,” but also several of their most requested non-holiday treats such as “My Girlfriend’s Dead,” “Euro Barge,” and “Anarchy Burger (Hold The Government)!” The film also includes tons of additional footage and interviews with the band shot at the newly renovated Santa’s Village adventure park in Lake Arrowhead, a staple of Southern California Christmas season nostalgia.
