12 Days of Arbor Christmas - Day 6: Assassination on Christmas Eve by Into It Over It

For the past 12 years, musicians from South Jersey, Philadelphia, and beyond.. have gathered to record a compilation album and live play called the Arbor Christmas Show. It's inspired by "the old Christmas TV specials that had the celebrity host "at home" and all of their celebrity friends would stop by and hang out and maybe perform a song." The songs have been amazing year after year, so I wanted to share my top 12. But feel free to explore for yourself! All of the compilations are available for downloaded/stream at
Day 5: Assassination on Christmas Eve by Into It Over It

This is the first cover on our list of 12 days of Arbor Christmas, and for me it's one of those covers that tops the original. And it's hard to top Archers of Loaf. But this is soooo good.

Evan has also written some amazing original songs for the compilations, as both Into It Over It and The Progress. If I could stop listening to this one, I'd be able to pick a favorite. But if I had to, it might be last years song, "For Agnes".
