Concert preview: Girl Fox Christmas Jamboree

Joel Oliphint

The second annual Girl Fox Christmas Jamboree is a great excuse to check out this promising indie-rock upstart that decamped from Marion to Columbus a couple of years ago, and this past June released a strong debut EP, Really Girl Fox, which recalls bands like the Strokes and the Walkmen without aping those bands' sounds. Plus, this holiday show also features the Bascinets, a local band that appears on both of Alive's local favorites list. Fellow local act Saving Escape rounds out the bill.
