If you’re gonna do anything this holiday, put a little eggnog in your coffee. It sweetens the cup perfectly, providing a creamy richness that compliments the underlying bitterness of coffee at the core of the beverage. There is a comparable intellectual richness to Anti-Flag side project, White Wives.
Just like everything that delights the taste buds is invariably fattening and bad for you, I’m thoroughly convinced everything from Pittsburgh is good and good for you.
All personal bias aside, their LP Happeners is a ’90s-influenced sonic rush of guitars and gritty vocals with melodic choruses that beg you to sing along. White Wives retain the political and social consciousness of their Anti-flag roots with lyrics that are layered with literary influence.
We have a copy of Happeners to give away, as well as a pair of tickets to see them live next Wednesday (12/21) at DC9.
For a chance to win, all you need to do is leave a comment letting us know your favorite holiday beverage. Throw in a link to the recipe for good measure. (You don’t have to, but we’re always down to try something new.)
