John Waters bringing Lavender Diamond along for crazy Christmas tour

    In a serious case of debauchery dallying with innocence, legendary envelope-pushing movie director John Waters will take neo-hippie band Lavender Diamond out on tour with him. The trek expands from a one-off “John Waters Christmas” program the pride of Baltimore put on last year in Los Angeles with musical accompaniment from Jonathan Richman. For now, the holiday hilarity is only scheduled to hit three U.S. cities and two Canadian towns. Needless to say, if you’re anywhere near any of those spots, you should definitely get to these shows. With two such paradoxical forces colliding, the universe might just fold in on itself and come to an end.
