A TVD Ticket Giveaway | Rosie Thomas' Very Rosie Christmas! | Monday (12/1) at Jammin Java

Not feeling the holiday spirit just yet? TVD's got a cure (and tickets!) to snap you right into the season! Indie popster Rosie Thomas brings her brand of seasonal mirth to Jammin Java this Monday night (12/1) to herald the holiday happiness and to celebrate the release of her new Christmas-themed CD 'A Very Rosie Christmas'!

Per Rosie's website, "'A Very Rosie Christmas' is Rosie's Christmas Wish to you! Chock full of eggnog and grand spirits, Rosie, alongside her husband Jeff Shoop and longtime producer Josh Myers, called upon friends (Damien Jurado), family (Rosie’s brother Brian Thomas, affectionately known to his friends as BT) and alter egos (the simply hilarious Sheila Saputo) to capture all the warmth and exuberance of the holiday season for everyone to share.

You’ll find all their holiday favorites such as "Christmastime Is Here", "O Come Emmanuel", and "Winter Wonderland", cozy up next to the playful original "Why Can’t It Be Christmastime All Year?" and the Prairie Home Companion style radio sketch “Sheila’s Christmas Miracle”. So light the fire and mosey over to cuddle in front of the tree and experience 'A Very Rosie Christmas' and we hope it will give you that special Christmas glow throughout the holiday season!"

TVD's got a pair of tickets for this Monday's show, a copy of the new 'A Very Rosie Christmas,' AND Rosie's last record 'These Friends of Mine' (recorded with Sufjan Stevens and Denison Witmer) to bestow upon one Christmas-y commenter! Make it festive and holiday themed in the spirit o' the season and we'll choose one winner by noon on Monday for the stocking filled with stuff. Remember to leave us some contact info too. "Santa @ North Pole" just won't cut it...

This lady is incredible. She has created a holiday masterpiece! I'm a huge fan of Rosie (as an artist and a person) and think that many of these songs showcase her marvelously. The fun energy of 'Why Can't It Be Christmastime All Year', the stirring and brilliant re-workings of 'Silent Night' and 'O Come O Come Emmanuel' and the introduction of a new style and verse to 'Christmas Don't Be Late' are genius. Don't be late to pick up this album (iTunes and Amazon). I'm thrilled to hear it's going to be a physical release too!
