If you're at all familiar with Rocket From the Crypt, you know they were big on Halloween, Their first gig was on Halloween, Their supposed last gig was on Halloween. (That was in '05. In recent years they've reunited.) They always wore matching outfits anyway, but on Halloween, they always took it up a notch. There were skeleton outfits, astronauts, the Village People, jumpsuit era Elvis, and I think one year it was mariachis, A lot of these shows were big, really big, particularly for a local headliner. They were like a coming out party. It wasn't a question of whether you were going, it was a question of who would be stuck with carting your particular group of soon to be drunk knuckleheads around. Good times.
