Moira Nelligan, egg nog and holiday fun

Join us tonight! From the newsletter:

Everybody all stocked up on holiday cheer?

We sure are. In fact, as visions of CD-adorned trees dance in our heads (no, seriously, look outside the store!), fresh off our fifth birthday celebration with the Bonaventure Quartet, we're plotting another evening of festivities. This Thursday (Dec. 11) at 7pm, Decatur roots-music staple Moira Nelligan will hold a CD release party for her new album, Christmas Folksongs, within the walls of Decatur CD. Check out her MySpace page for songs samples, and here's a little bio action:

"Georgia born and Irish descended, fiddler and singer Moira Nelligan celebrates Christmas with folk songs and fiddle tunes from the US and Ireland and Europe on her new cd "Christmas Folksongs", beautifully packaged cd with Celtic artwork by her husband, Michael Hickey. Moira sings and plays fiddle as well as piano accordion, bodhran, and recorder in imaginative arrangements of new and old Christmas songs. The collection ranges from the unusual and haunting old English ballad "the Cherry Tree Carol" and the Catalan "Fum, Fum, Fum" sung in Spanish, to a folk arrangement of the Charlie Brown theme "Christmas Time is Here" and an 80's Nashville hit "I Give You Music". Moira also fiddles lively jigs and reels and Irish airs in addition to the holiday repertoire. Mickey, 16, is joining mom as they venture from their home in Decatur, GA on their first cafe tour together this Christmas season."

We're looking forward to it, and Warren is out right now purchasing some egg nog for all the 21+ folks that show up Thursday night. Apparently we're going to have some cookies and sweets as well, but Eliot's in charge of making them, so proceed with caution. Bring your families, all; this will be a show for all ages.

Don't be a holiday fool!

The crazy guy above spent way too much money this holiday season buying outrageously priced gifts for all his loved ones. Now he's too embarrassed to show his face, shielding it with a ratty blonde wig and, inexplicably, a pair of 3-D glasses. Don't be like this guy! We have reasonably priced CDs, DVDs, LPs, books, box sets and more that will take care of everyone on your list. This has been a public service announcement from your friends at Decatur CD.

Bonaventure Quartet photos!

Bonaventure Quartet came (by on our birthday weekend), saw (a packed house of jazz-loving so and so's) and conquered (Decatur CD) a week ago. It was a blast, and now you get photographic evidence. Enjoy...

No. Release. Tuesday.

All right, maybe we're being a little pessimistic, but it is a pretty dire week for releases. Aside from the cool, new, live, acoustic Neil Young record, there ain't much. A little live Panic at the Disco and a couple other randoms and, um, that's about it. But hey! We've got tons of catalog. More than most stores, if we do say so ourselves. And music books! And DVDs! And vinyl! More and more by the day! Stop by and check it all out. Decatur CD is happy to be your holiday shopping destination.
