The 1st Annual went down at the intimate Santa Monica club, Trip, on Friday night. Produced by Spin Cycle Presents the night included musicians , , , Tycoon, Pete Griffin, and Jason Joseph. The band weaved some funk classics including “Let Me Ride”, “Nautilus” and “Jan Jan” as well as a beautiful piano solo of “Linus & Lucy.” Along with an ugly sweater contest, there was indeed a ‘Festivus pole’ where you could air your grievances.
