TODD & HEATHER’S CHRISTMAS CHEER!

Upstairs At Vitello's

4349 Tujunga Ave, Studio City, 91602

8:00pm

Singing comedy duo Todd Sherry & Heather Olt are back delivering gifts of holiday merriment with their wildly-popular annual cabaret show, TODD & HEATHER’S CHRISTMAS CHEER! Now in its fourth year, Todd & Heather have kicked it up a notch, literally, taking the holiday hit to Upstairs At Vitello’s for two exclusive performances on December 4th and 6th.

TODD & HEATHER’S CHRISTMAS CHEER! begins with the dynamic comedy duo as two Christmas Cheerleaders on opposing sides: one from “Team Santa” and the other from “Team Jesus”. The show supplies plenty of peace, love, joy and, of course, cheer for audiences, as Todd & Heather perform countless Christmas songs while exploring their differing ideas. Eventually, as what always must happen in the end, they come together and realize that there is room for both Santa AND Jesus in the holiday.

Todd & Heather are thrilled to be back again this year, offering even more songs, more memorable moments and even more cheer. Todd & Heather explain, "The show came from an actual conversation we had one summer evening, when we discovered our differing views on Christmas. Todd was raised non-religiously with Christmas being all about Santa, The Grinch, Charlie Brown and Frosty. And Heather was raised Christian and always knew Christmas to be the celebration of the birth of Jesus. The obvious humor in these opposing viewpoints, coupled with their love of all Christmas music (both sacred and secular) is what spawned the delightful comedy that is TODD & HEATHER'S CHRISTMAS CHEER!"

Todd & Heather, a comedic duo reminiscent Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, Nichols & May, the Smothers Brothers, and Donny & Marie, have been drawing huge crowds and high praise for their on-going regular monthly show UP, WITH A TWIST.

Madi Diaz

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:00pm

Her father and mother both have wide arms and colorful palates, and supplemented her education with a steady stream of classic rock, metal, r&b, pop and prog. The inspiration stuck with Madi, who left small town life behind for Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music. There, she began to shape her sound with songwriter Kyle Ryan, where her powerful voice intermixed with Americana undertones. Next she moved to Nashville, self-releasing her first album "Plastic Moon" in 2012, and beginning to explore her music's cinematic feel.

Now with Madi's Nettwerk debut "Phantom," her songs dive deeper and fly higher, providing a soundtrack for adventurous escapades on sweaty dance floors with old friends or late night introspective drives under a canopy of stars. As she takes to the road again this summer, Madi is poised to unleash her powerful songs and chase whatever the future may hold. "I can never sit still," she says "I wanna hurl myself into life. These songs tell a story about lighting flames and letting every part of the last fire burn out. Don't turn around and don't look back. Look forward."

Monday Night Residency with Girlpool

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

8:00pm

“If rebellion had a sound, I imagine it would end up sounding a lot like Girlpool. It’s not necessarily a descriptor that they would ascribe to themselves — they’d probably go with honest — but what is honesty except a form of rebellion against expectations? And Girlpool subvert expectations at every turn. Made up of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker, the duo chose early on to do more with less: They use only a guitar, a bass, and their own voices to craft prickly and powerful rock. Their minimalist approach to sound allows the lyrics to take center stage, and those lyrics are achingly genuine and upfront. Above all else, the band values their vulnerability: it’s something that comes through potently in their music. It’s punk in the best sense of the word: fresh, raw, and uncompromising, a callback to the heyday of riot grrl exceptionalism.
