Trashy Little Xmas Show

Honky-tonk legends Trailer Trash will bring their very popular “Trashy Little Xmas Show” back to Northfield’s Grand Event Center on Friday, Dec. 13. Doors open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door and can be purchased at the KYMN Radio studios (200 Division Street) and online at www.thegrandnorthfield.com and www.trailertrashmusic.com.

One of Minnesota’s most popular bands, Trailer Trash has been performing their annual holiday revue for over 18 years to sold-out audiences in Minneapolis and Rochester. The band is particularly pleased to bring their holiday extravaganza back to Northfield again in 2013.

“We love Northfield,” says Trailer Trash frontman, Nate Dungan. "It's a huge music town, and the Grand is a terrific venue to play. We had a blast playing there last year and the year before! Our Rochester show is already sold out again this year, so we are hoping to see some friends and fans at the Northfield show! We're gonna play the Christmas hits, and we have some new chestnuts for the fire, too. Everyone is invited to come bang the Jingle Stick and get their Christmas bliss on!"

With their “Trashy Little Xmas Show,” Trailer Trash revamps the Christmas classics and mixes in some festive originals, for a holiday show that’s the perfect anecdote to this sometimes stressful time of year.

“This isn't your standard Christmas fare. This is holiday cheer dipped in honky-tonk sass. Trailer Trash revamps the classics, and mixes in some festive originals. You'll laugh, you'll sing along, and you will dance your little humbug off!,” says Jessica Paxton, KYMN Radio host.

“The Trashy Little Xmas Show combines all the spectacle of the season. It’s cheesy and sassy and glitzy—and guaranteed to make even the grumpiest Grinch grin with glee. It’s the perfect anecdote to the holiday blues,” she promises.

“These guys are musical maestros—and a whole lot of fun,” says Paxton. “They consistently put on a fantastic show. You’ll be tapping your toes and shaking your hips all night long. Combine great musicianship and a whole bunch of holiday razzle dazzle, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for celebrating the season.”

Since 1993, Trailer Trash has drawn enthusiastic crowds at the legendary Lee's Liquor Lounge in downtown Minneapolis. Best known for playing country music, the band also swings, rocks and grooves with the many other styles from the American hit parade.

The members of Trailer Trash enjoy turning new generations on to the classic sound of American roots music. Their contagious enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment onstage have earned Trailer Trash the reputation of being Minnesota's premier honky-tonk band.  

Trailer Trash has achieved an important position in Minnesota musical history. They performed at Jesse Ventura’s Inaugural Ball at the Target Center, played the opening of the new Guthrie Theater, and have entertained countless thousands at their annual Trashy Little Xmas Show. The band has provided the soundtrack to hundreds of Twin Cities courtships and wedding receptions. Somewhere during it all, the group has also racked up seven Minnesota Music Awards, appeared in two movies, and put out six albums. The band’s website can be found at www.trailertrashmusic.com.

The Grand Event Center is located at 316 Washington Street in Northfield, Minn. For more information on Northfield’s own “Trashy Little Xmas Show,” visit online at www.thegrandnorthfield.com or www.trailertrashmusic.com, or call Jessica Paxton at KYMN Radio at (507) 645-5695.
