If you like to celebrate the Halloween holiday with a show, I can think of no better way to kick off Halloween weekend than with Strong Killings (who's album I am loving right now), Steel Tigers of Death and Misfits-ish gender bending cover band, Glenn or Glennda this Friday at the Crocodile.

This year marks the 10th Anniversary (and most likely, last showing) of Glenn or Glennda, an annual celebration of that is Misfits with our friends Billy and Melissa of Bat Country and a revolving group of our friends from various local bands.

Besides the ghouishly amazing openers, Glenn or Glennda have promised an over the top production that will involve "exploding coffins, puppets, cereal box mascots and a bunch of other stuff that's basically going to turn this whole thing into the most amazing session of punk rock, live-action, Saturday Morning Cartoons ever."  Their set hits the Misfits mark with a variety of covers, but it will also include "Misfits-ized" versions of songs like "Scary Monsters" by David Bowie, "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, "Idle Hands" by Murder City Devils and "Science Fiction / Double Feature" from Rocky Horror.

It could be true that you have to be there to understand. If that's the case, then grab your Value Village Mrs. Roper costume and head to the Crocodile on Friday, October 28 to see these bands for yourselves. 


If you haven't made your Halloween plans yet...

...I highly endorse checking out at least one of the two performances from Glenn or Glennda?, described aptly on its MySpace page as, "Seattle's funniest, weirdest, sexiest, mostest bestest Misfits tribute band".

The shows are Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Fun House and Wed. Oct. 31 at the Re-Bar.
