'Tis the season to help others!

From now through Christmas Eve, The Sexy Accident will give all revenue (not just profits - all of the money!) from the sale of our T-Shirts to Kansas City nonprofit Operation Breakthrough.

Why Operation Breakthrough? Christmas is about kids, and Operation Breakthrough gives gifts that are way more important than toys and candy canes. Some of the many services they provide to poor children and adolescents include: before and after school care, dental care, immunizations, speech therapy, literacy programs, GED counseling and homelessness prevention.

So if you're pining for a super-comfortable, incredibly fashionable, often 100% USA made T-Shirt from your favorite Kansas City pop band, AND you want to do the right thing for the less fortunate at the same time, head on over to our merch page and pick up some shirts. It's the right thing to do and a tasty way to do it (like Oatmeal and Wilfred Brimley.)

This promotion is lmited to our current stock. We'll post if we sell out, though it's not likely to happen. :) We just restocked!

A Merry Christmas To You

New Christmas Single

Just in time for the holidays, The Sexy Accident announces the release of a new, third version of A Merry Christmas To You!

A Merry Christmas To You appeared in its original form on 2009's Mantoloking, and was quickly followed by a cavernous, urban paranoiac remix within the same year.

In the first two versions of the song, we reversed the sexes of the characters. Now, since no sex or sexuality has a monopoly on disappointment, obsession, delusion or insensitivity, all three characters are played by women. The lead role is now sung by our own Camry Ivory, and singer-songwriter Nadia Piotrowsky plays the object of the narrator's unrequited affections.

All three versions of the song were produced and mixed by legendary Seattle producer Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Unwound, Pigeonhed, etc.) and the 2010 version features additional production by Chuck Whittington of Kansas City's namelessnumberheadman!

So what are you waiting for? Check it out!

December Live Performances

There will be two opportunities to catch Jesse & Camry playing quiet, intimate, acoustic renditions of SXA classics this month - and both are on Saturday, December 11th.

At 3pm, Jesse & Camry hit the legendary Jardine's on the plaza with Elaine McMilian and Dollar Fox for an acoustic holiday show. This will be a short set of 3-4 songs.

At 10pm, the party moves over to Prospero's Books on 39th and becomes a holiday benefit concert for Operation Breakthrough, featuring Enrique Chi of Making Movies playing solo acoustic! Camry will bring cookies, and we'll play a full acoustic set. All proceeds will go to Operation Breakthrough. $5 suggested donation.

That's it!

We hope you enjoy the tunes, and that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
