Tart Pops Their Black Christmas Cherry Tonight!

Black Christmas is finally here! Tonight some of the best bands in Detroit and the surrounding area will be taking over the entire Majestic complex! This annual event couldn't be pulled off by anyone other than Black Iris Booking, and this year Ramona has outdone herself. 

Favorites like The Suicide Machines, The Black Dahlia Murder and Mustard Plug will be hitting the stages throughout the night, but this year there are some newbies playing the show too! This is the first year that bands like The Idiot Kids and Tart will be playing this festival. We had a chance to ask Zee & Adam from Tart our 12 Days of Black Christmas questions. Check out what they had to say. 
HID- What other band are you most looking forward to seeing during this year's Black Christmas? 
TART- "This is always such a tough question, we're not much for picking favorites. But we are super pumped to see the Suicide Machines and Fucked Up. We also always love watching the Idiot Kids. They mesmerize us every time. "

HID- What did you ask Santa for this Holiday Season? 
TART- "We must have been on the nice list this year, because Santa delivered on a the new boots we'd been eyeing."

HID- What’s the most memorable gift you got as a child? 
TART- "A very sophisticated wooden easel, that had a drawer filled with new paints. Also a pair of shiny, violet, pleather pants my Gram got me when I was nine. I thought they were so cool, but my mom wouldn't let me keep them."

HID- What's your favorite food around the holidays? 
TART- "Everything, we're not picky! But we do get excited for desserts- cassata cake, banana cream pie, hummers- yes, please."

HID- Do you have a favorite Christmas song? 
TART- "'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen' is surprisingly moody and dark for a Christmas song. We also like Nat King Cole's version of "The Christmas Song". It's classic."

HID- What does Black Christmas mean to you?
TART- "This is our first Black Christmas, so we're sure we'll be able to answer this better after Friday! But we're really just excited/proud/honored to be included in this line-up. Like, holy shit. This is awesome."

HID- Have you ever caught your parents having sex when you were looking for Santa on Christmas Eve? 
TART- "Not yet! Maybe next year."

Tickets are still available to Black Christmas and can be purchased in advance here. Doors are set to open at 6 p.m. and all ages are welcome. Check out the entire lineup and set times below!
