The Skint presents: Winterland Romp
Call it Christmas in a New Orleans cathouse, circa 1932.

Because you've been very, very good this year, we're stuffing your stockings to bursting at the Winterland Romp!

Dance to sweaty old jazz from cult favorites The Hot Sardines.

Coo at the sugarplums of burlesque performer The Ivory Fox.

Get lulled into a state of sublime bliss from the angelic holiday serenades of Maya Solovey.

Be on the lookout for a surprise visit from the elusive Chanukah Elf!

Work on your last truly epic hangover of 2012 with our $5 HOLIDAY PUNCH drink special.

Pop by the FREE Winterland photo booth (courtesy of Bibi Booth) to capture your twinkling eyes, merry dimples, rosy cheeks and cherry nose that would make Saint Nick proud.

(Holiday dress welcome and rewarded with admiring glances.)

Limited-edition event posters will be available for sale, a portion of which will benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The Hot Sardines
The Hot Sardines
Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats
Waller vein, and tie the whole thing together with a one-of-the-boys frontwoman with a voice from
another era, and you have the Hot Sardines. (We haven’t even told you about the tap dancer yet.)

In a short time, the Hot Sardines have gone from their first gig – at a coffee shop on the last Q train stop
in Queens – to selling out Joe’s Pub five times in as many months, headlining at Lincoln Center’s
Midsummer Night Swing, and opening for the Bad Plus, Lulu Gainsbourg and French gypsy-jazz artist
Zaz. Through it all they’ve become regulars at the Shanghai Mermaid speakeasy and turned The
Standard, where they play regularly, into their own “saloon in the sky” (The Wall Street Journal) –
complete with tap dancing on the bar – honing a live persona that’s been called “unforgettably wild” and
“consistently electrifying” (Popmatters).

The Sardine sound – wartime Paris via New Orleans, or the other way around – is steeped in hot jazz,
salty stride piano, and the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Waller used to make:
Straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. (Literally – the band includes a tap dancer whose feet count as two
members of the rhythm section). They manage to invoke the sounds of a near-century ago and stay
resolutely in step with the current age. And while their roots run deep into jazz, that most American of
genres, they’re intertwined with French influences via their frontwoman, who was born and raised in
Paris (and writes songs in both languages).

The band was born when said Parisian (“Miz Elizabeth” Bougerol) met a stride piano player (bandleader
Evan “Bibs” Palazzo) at a jam session they found on Craigslist. Above a noodle shop on Manhattan’s
49th Street, they discovered a mutual love for songs from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s that no-one really
plays anymore. Or if they play them, “they handle them with kid gloves, like pieces in a museum,” says
Evan, underscoring a point the pair can’t stress enough: “This music isn’t historical artifact. It’s a living,
breathing, always-evolving thing.”

Members of the Sardines collective have worked with a genre-hopping roster that includes Rufus
Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens, Lauren Ambrose, Sondre Lerche, Vetiver, Of Montreal, Nicholas Payton,
Kurt Elling, Branford Marsalis, the New York and Jerusalem Philharmonics, Slavic Soul Party and the
Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra.
The Ivory Fox
The Ivory Fox
Ivory Fox was born in a cold habitat that turned her skin to the color of snow. She has the grace of a ballerina and the arresting curves of the pin-ups of yesteryear.
Maya Solovey
Maya Solovey
Recording artist Maya Solovey’s new album FORTE brims with that exuberant American sound: colossal drums, cinematic strings, grand percussive pianos, rollicking guitars, tasteful electronics, and most notably Maya’s full-bodied beatific voice, which sounds as if were made from silk and ache.
The Chanukah Elf
