David Bazan

Christmas is still a couple of months away, but one of its biggest supporters will be coming to Denver early. David Bazan, formerly of Pedro the Lion and Headphones, may seem an unlikely St. Nick, but he's taken the Christmas spirit by the reigns and just released his sixth installment of the Christmas Single series for Suicide Squeeze Records. The latest adapts John and Yoko's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" and Wayne Coyne's "Say It Isn't Greensleeves (A Change at Christmas)." Bazan, who cites comedian Horatio Sanz as a close friend, also performed at Sanz's 2006 Christmas show, "The Ho-Ho-Horatio Christmas Special," at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. It seems that Bazan, who frequently sings about faith and his relationship with God, is still looking for a bit of redemption from Jesus — or at least some kick-ass presents on his birthday.
