With all the internet hype about the long awaited third season of David Lynch’s classic TV series Twin Peaks to air in 2016, 25 years after the show ended as the dead Laura Palmer prophesied, there was bound to be a resurgence of the show long before 2016 comes along. The good folks at Jazz Party have decided to combine this great news with Christmas. Now try to picture this: Santa Claus arriving in his sleigh flying down into Twin Peaks where the likes of the Log Lady, the Red Room and (gulp) Bob all live. Santa wouldn’t seem so weird there.
There were a lot of unanswered questions when Twin Peaks ended, such as what lies in Dr Jacoby’s coconut, what did the log see on the fateful night of Laura Palmer’s demise, and who is the one-armed man? These questions will not only be answered, but will be answered through song by the jazz bands playing this night. (So none of those cheesy Christmas songs we have to endure every year; that in itself is worth celebrating!).
With these bands to accompany the kooky mood of a Twin Peaks themed Christmas party, it’ll be quite a swank party, yet strange at the same time. Who knows, it might be a bit like the jazz club in David Lynch’s other classic Blue Velvet (hopefully without any gas sucking weirdos named Frank Booth though).
In true Twin Peaks style, they will be plenty of pie and damn good coffee on offer, themed cocktails like the spicy Fire Walk With Me, Agent Cooper’s Breakfast Syrup, or the Log Lady’s Secret. It’ll feel like we’re living the show ourselves and skipped 2015 so we could enjoy the new Twin Peaks that much sooner.
