There’s no shortage of events during the holiday season offering songs, stories and/or cheer. But “Holiday Slay,” scheduled for Dec. 15 at the Metro Gallery, promises much more.
Following up on his successful web series on politics, “Secretary of Shade,” a mix of live reading, commentary and shade-throwing, rapper DDm, aka Emmanuel Williams, will liven up such holiday classics as “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,” plus offer an original holiday story of his own creation, “The Holiday Slay.”
Williams tells Baltimore Fishbowl the story is about “a teenager from the poor part of town who gets invited to a Christmas party at a rich friend’s house but can’t afford an outfit for the dress code, so he gets inventive.”
The musical acts Outcalls, Rovo Monty and Randi & Infinity Knives will also be on hand to provide their own renditions of classic Christmas songs, and DJ Trillnatured and DJ Sean J will fill in the gaps.
“I think it’s something different and very much so needed right now,” says Williams. “A time to unwind, relax and escape.”
Tickets are on sale now and cost $10.
Correction: An earlier headline on this post said Holiday Slay is on Dec. 10. It is on Dec. 15. Baltimore Fishbowl regrets the error.
