This year's Holiday Cheer for FUV: Live from the Beacon Theatre hit all of the high notes: dynamic performances, a happy crowd, memorable moments, Christmas caroling and even a funky Hanukkah song. Thanks to this year’s stellar lineup of Brandi Carlile, Dawes, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, and Lucius, the show, which benefits WFUV, was a sold-out and exuberant evening.
