Alice Cooper (Alice, Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce) played the annual Xmas Pudding show at the Dodge Theater on Saturday night. The show ran late and the band (augmented by Damon Johnson) didn't get onstage until around 1am but played a short set consisting of 'No More Mr. Nice Guy', 'Be My Lover', 'Under My Wheels', 'Billion Dollar Babies', 'Eigheen' and 'School's Out'. PsychoPat has some pics up here.
