    Our Halloween gig is next week (Friday, Oct 26). I'll be going as the Terminator. Complete with ripped flash on my face/arm exposing the "metal" underneath (found the how-to on youtube).



    Promo vid is here. It's just a customized template, but it gets the job done: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151193016220340



    I'll post pics when we get them.

      Both bands are playing next weekend. Ostrich Hat is playing a restaurant that we usually play once every 5-6 weeks. The owners are planning to go all out this year and of course costume contests and stuff.



      There & Back Again is playing the best bar in town for our 10th anniversary/ Halloween party. There is almost NO way it will be anything other than a great crowd.

        We'll be playing next Saturday as well as on Halloween night at the House Of Blues. I always love Halloween shows, usually a lot of fun. We'll be going as our sort of alter-ego/side project The Phantom Lincoln Funeral Train We're basically a band of undead minstrels from the 1800's. It's kinda fun because it allows us to take our "Southern Gothic Blues" concept to a little creepier level.

                Both bands playing - in combined venues that make me feel like I'm a real musician and women should be falling at my feet... Skin and Bones is playing a huge Halloween party at House of Blues CLE next Friday (26th), myManic Episode is playing @ Browns Stadium pregame on Sunday (28th), and then Skin & Bones is playing a private event at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Tuesday (30th). Wow. That reads way cooler than I actually am.



                This is last Halloween era at The Grog Shop. I was the Joker, as a nurse, of course. Because who wants to wear purple?

                    We're playing a bottom-feeder three-bander at some dive bar with two really fun bands with devoted followings we're hoping to poach. No costumes, other than the band "uniform", which makes us look like bridegrooms.

                      We're playing a pretty big Halloween party in a downtown 'burb area of Metro Detroit. About 10 bars/clubs are participating and holding all kinds of different costume contests with different prizes all evening long. It's pretty cool because they coordinated the type and timing of each contest so that none overlap, which makes it a big costume pub crawl.



                      We're hosting the contests and giving away the prizes at one such location.



                      Also we'll end up with a shorter night because it's game 3 of the World Series that night...and our Tigers are gonna beat some NL ass. We'll be starting when the game ends.



                      Costumes:



                      Me (and my wife) are going as Sheldon and Amy from the Big Bang Theory

                      Lead singer/rhythm guitarist: Angus Young

                      Bass Player: Jim Leyland

                      Drummer: ?? Won't know until the gig. He keeps his costumes on the DL.

                        I used to do that with my bands, just to mess with them. We'd have theme'd costumes, and I'd always have to configure it so I could still play the drums while in character. It became a bit of "Okay, where's Fitch?" prior to the show.



                        Since I'm drumming in a cowboy hat all night Saturday, I've been wearing it around the house all the time. I don't know how those guys do it. I whack the brim on everything.

                          My in-laws live in TX and they gave me a cowboy hat once. I wore it for about 5-6 minutes and it's been buried in our basement since.
