One of the charms of the New Standards' ever-charming holiday shows -- being staged for the sixth year Friday through Sunday at the Fitzgerald Theater -- is their potluck quality. The trio of Twin Cities music vets tap a host of other local talents, who always bring something special to share.

That's also true of the band's new video, directed by Minnesota-bred filmmaker Wyatt McDill (currently working in L.A.) and featuring choreography by Joe Chvala, a regular at TNS's holiday galas. The band takes alterna-dance diva Robyn's song "Call Your Girlfriend," and flips it to a boy's P.O.V. -- all beautifully staged at the Woman's Club of Minneapolis on one of the hottest days of last summer. (Judging from John Munson's I-Am-the-Walrus moustache, he must've confused July with Movember.)
