Unwrap an Early Gift of Cuddle Magic and Oh! Pears at JB’s Dec. 22

Unwrap an Early Gift of Cuddle Magic and Oh! Pears at JB’s Dec. 22

Celebrate the magic of the holidays a little early this year thanks to avant garde ensemble Cuddle Magic. With a membership that can hit double digits providing strings, percussion, a vibraphone, clarinet, and then some to their musical arsenal, they’re set to play to the tune of the Twelve Days of Christmas. And they even have a Festivus of lamps and a 3-foot tall plastic penguin for their stage arrangement! Both their self-titled debut and masterful album Picture are available on West Philly’s FYO Records. With expertly crafted instrumentation and chamber pop sensibilities, the band wraps up an exciting year of shows tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. But since their currently working on overdubs in the studio with producer Bryce Goggin who has worked with the Ramones, Phish, Pavement and many more, it’s sure to set the tone for bigger things to come. Joining them this evening will be Oh! Pears, otherwise known as Corey Duncan and his elaborately crafted orchestral ensemble. After a year’s worth of work, the former Pattern Is Movement guitarist has had plenty of practice refining the live performance of his symphonic debut Fill Yr Lungs. And its beautiful tunes are sure to bring some enchantment and wonderment to your ears. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill
