Mystery No More!: Long Live the Dead Details [10/01/2008 05:17:00 PM]:
didn't last long...it appears somebody got excited & leaked some more info about the Long Live the Dead
party on the 31st of October
up at Walter's
, like with the whole lineup & everything. So, in the interest of letting y'all know as much as we
know, uh, here's the "full" flyer with the actual bands listed.
From what we hear from the good people at Pigeon Eater Studios who're throwing this thing, Dannzig isn't the "real" Danzig (which may or may not be a bad thing, I dunno), but is in fact a Misfits/Samhain/Danzig tribute band that includes folks who playin in The Jonbenet, The Monocles, Zombilly, & My Luck. I dunno the latter two of that pile (except that, uh, I thought Zombilly was toast), but the former two kick fucking ass, so I'd be willing to bet their tribute to all things Danzig-related will rule.
Plus, The Monocles will apparently also be rocking the house as themselves, as will News on the March, The Wild Moccasins, and Young Mammals (who I'd heard would be playing Pixies songs, but I've got no clue if that's still the case). So basically, about one-fourth of the Most Amazingly Talented Bands in Town contingent will be doing their thing. Expect the lights in the rest of the city to dim temporarily.
Oh, and if all goes according to plan, show-goers will not only get to par-tay down Halloween-style with great music and free beer for the of-agers (btw, the cover's gonna be $8 for those who're in costume and $10 for the chickenshits among us who aren't), but they'll also walk home with a freeeeeeee copy of a brand-spanking-new Monocles/News on the March split-7". Which, honestly, is probably far, far better a treat than the crap candy you (or your kid) might get handed by your cheapskate neighbors. I swear to God, last year it was like the 'hood we took out daughter around was boycotting chocolate or something; what's wrong with you people? The slab of vinyl will definitely last longer, anyway...
