Marah cohorts and a great playground/soul girl group in their own right, the Shalitas are back in action. Their site’s revived and kicking. They’ll be on the Bielankos’ Christmas tour this month and will likely figure big (on the Marah scale).
Why? Because the girls seem to love the holidays as much as the boys. On last year’s Christmas Single, the Shalitas’ Merry Christmas (I Don’t Wanna Fight Tonight) Ramones cover is the best new holiday song I’ve heard in years. (There’s finally a clip on the Shalitas’ MySpace, but it doesn’t do the song justice.) This year they’ve contributed to many of the tracks on Marah’s A Christmas Kind of Town.
They also promise T-shirts.
