Scott Lucas & The Married Men
A Festivus miracle! They’re getting the band back together for the holidays! After taking all of 2014 off to play music with their other bands -- Scott Lucas is the frontman for long-running, two-man band Local H, while several of the Married Men also play in Celtic Punk band the Tossers -- Scott Lucas & the Married Men will reunite for their 5th Annual Hideout Holiday Music Hour. Their first and only performance of the year will be recorded and broadcast from the band’s website www.scottlucasandthemarriedmen.com around Christmas.

The show will feature plenty of holiday classics -- in the past they’ve taken on “Feliz Navidad,” “Last Christmas” by Wham!, “Mr. Grinch,” “Father Christmas” by the Kinks and many more. Lucas and his six-piece backing band, the Married Men -- a collective that includes violin, organ and accordion and has drawn comparisons to Wilco, the Waterboys and Nick Cave -- will also perform original songs from their most recent records, Blood Half Moon and The Cruel Summer EP, as well as Married Men staples, drawn from their first two releases: George Lassos the Moon and The Absolute Beginners EP.

Chicago-based Purple Apple will open the show, crafting a setlist of chock full of fan favorites, holiday covers and new material. The band is made up of three 15-year-old girls and their twentysomething babysitter on drums. Since the release of their debut EP Sweet Wolverine in 2010, the girls have written more than a dozen new songs and have continued to perfect their live sound, initially at venerable venues like Schubas and The Hideout, and eventually graduating to become the youngest band to ever headline Chicago's legendary rock venue, The Metro. They recently signed a songwriting deal with Sony ATV music publishing and are currently working on a new EP.
