Remember when it snowed a whole lot on Sunday? That was a signal: No more nice weather for a long while. Work Drugs, whether they’re aware of this or not, were formulated to combat your potential winter weariness and bouts of SAD, with Thomas Crystal and Benjamin Louisiana’s buoyant, synth-laden jams sure to melt all snowy thoughts and icy hearts. This Saturday’s show is billed as “A Work Drugs Christmas Spectacle,” bringing sexy Vice City vibes to JB’s on what’s sure to be a cold night. They will also probably play their spankin’ new holiday single, “Never Gonna Be Alone on Christmas” — a perfectly cheese-filled, jingle-bell-accented addition to their already sizable output that suggests, come this Christmas, maybe it’s time to trade in those sweatpants and knit socks for an eggshell white blazer and gold chain.
