Celebrate 25 Years of Mustard Plug at Black Christmas

Can you believe it? Black Christmas is almost here! In just a few days The Majestic will be full of boys and girls, and women and men of all ages all there for one reason. To fucking party! Black Christmas will once again bring together great bands like The Suicide Machines, The Black Dahlia Murder, Koffin Kats, Cheapshow, Dirtwolf and of course, Mustard Plug.
It has been a tradition for years now for Mustard Plug to play special holiday shows around Christmas. This year it is extra special for these guys because they are also celebrating their 25th Anniversary! And we thought 5 years was a big deal! Mustard Plug will be celebrating their anniversary first on Thursday night at The Intersection in Grand Rapids. Then they will head to Detroit on Friday night to party at Black Christmas. 

We had a chance to ask Mustard Plug's own Colin Clive our 12 Days of Black Christmas questions. Check out what he had to say below.

HID- What other band are you most looking forward to seeing during this year's Black Christmas? 
Colin- "Fucked Up! and… Municipal Waste!! and…. Suicide Machines!! and… Rebel Spies!!! and… Koffin Kats!! and….. and…. I’m sorry, I can’t do this. I can never pick just one / when it comes to seeing live music/bands! I’ve been going to shows forever and I still get just as excited as I did at my first show. A good band can change your life!! Love it!! Can’t wait to see everyone!!"

HID- What did you ask Santa for this Holiday Season?  
Colin- "To please help the nation survive the next 4 years. Other than that some new records is always a good thing!!"

HID- What’s the most memorable gift you got as a child?
Colin- "I’d have to say it was probably my Hutch BMX Bike. Or any number of other BMX related gear. My family was really into BMX racing in the early 80’s and Christmas presents were heavily based around new bike stuff. My parents were also really clever with surprises!"

HID- What's your favorite food around the holidays? 
Colin- "Mexican food!! All the time!! I am a big fan of fondue as well!! My family usually has one or the other for our big holiday meal. This year it’s enchiladas, burritos, rice and beans, etc. So good!!"

HID- Do you have a favorite Christmas song? 
Colin- "Last Christmas by Wham! Is there another one?"

HID- What does Black Christmas mean to you? 
Colin- "It’s a tradition at this point!! Something to always look forward to and an awesome way to end the year!! Detroit has always been a home away from home for us and it’s a great way to wrap stuff up and get ready for the next year!! Good times with good friends old and new guaranteed!!"

HID- Have you ever caught your parents having sex when you were looking for Santa on Christmas Eve?
Colin- "Thankfully I have not. I was reading these questions to a 21 year old coworker who unfortunately had and he didn’t have very fond memories of it. He said he will probably never recover. I’m glad I don’t have to live with that. I have enough things to deal with."
