Even if you don't actually believe in it, you really do owe it to yourself to sing Christmas songs in a room full of people at least once this year. And Hanukkah songs too, as well as non-denominational carols about snowmen and sleigh rides and lots of things that may or may not have any particular relevance to your life in Los Angeles. Come on, it's okay. The words are on the paper, everyone else is singing and no one else can stay in tune any better than you can. Lift up your voice. It feels good.

In that spirit, comedian, Bass God and national treasure Harry Shearer and his wife, singer/ songwriter Judith Owen, along with special guests that include Michael McKean and Julianna Ray, will present their annual Holiday Singalong this Friday and Saturday at the Steve Allen Theater. Special guests have been promised; we're hoping for a rousing Christmas With The Devil if the other guys from Spinal Tap are in town. Judith Owen was kind enough to shed some light on the plastic snow for LAist.

Do you have a favorite genre for holiday-themed songs?

If Ella Fitzgerald sang it then it's alright by me!
