Local band The Nickel Slots are back and armed with an ambitious collection of seasonal favorites. The aptly titled Christmas with The Nickel Slots was released in early November and features four songs ranging in genre from pop to country to the more traditional Christmas fare. The collection also includes a song penned by band leader Tony Brusca aptly, yet oddly, titled “A Shot and a Beer for Christmas” that stands up against any odes to drinking or the holidays. Fans of Americana and alternative country have been packing clubs around the greater Sacramento Valley to see this four-piece and they even landed a coveted slot opening for Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band earlier this year at the Sleep Train Arena. As luck would have it, this Sammie award-winning band will be playing a show dubbed Rock Me Naughty 2 at The Powerhouse Pub in Folsom on Dec. 19, 2015, with The Infamous Swanks and Jitterbug Riot in tow. Come hear what some of the area’s hardest working bands are up to and, of course, spread some holiday cheer while knocking back some stiff drinks. Expect a lot of Christmas classics and bring some money to buy their new EP. Check out Thenickelslotsmusic.com to learn more about the band, and RSVP to the show by searching for the Rock Me Naughty 2 event page on Facebook.com.
