Normally, an invitation to check out a tribute band should be met with a polite decline. But when the opportunity arises to check out tribute bands that twist the templates of their namesakes into a Krampus-themed celebration, we have to accept. Krammpstein uses elaborate costumes and a wild stage show to set the mood for a dark celebration of the season, with Krampus-themed reimaginings of popular cuts from German industrial-rock giants Rammstein. We have yet to experience openers Marilyn Krampson, but go anyway — the whole night is guaranteed to be one of the most surreal holiday events of 2014.
