Merely Chadmas

merely-chadmas-2014

From the Doctor:

Saturday, December 27th

Mack and Mack’s
Downtown Greensboro, North Carolina

Eugene, Molly and Lizzie Chadbourne star in the first annual MERELY CHADMAS, which we guarantee has absolutely nothing do with Christmas but plenty to do with Doc Chad’s ever evolving musical relationship with his daughters.

The evening will be an overview of their past hits i.e. The Early Years but will also include highlights of Eugene and Molly’s recent appearances together onstage in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Guern and a selection of surprising cover
versions selected by Lizzie.

The evening will also celebrate the publication of Dreamory, Eugene’s autobiographical collection of dreams and diaries, finally available after decades of preparation. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
