Concert Listings Roundup #68

You can read more about why I'm doing listings here. Long story short: This curated and decidedly non-comprehensive list contains nothin' but shows that I am going to/would go to if I had more time.

Gig of the week:

DEATH TO T.O. IV: A Halloween Covers Show (feat. Biblical [as Black Sabbath] / The Soupcans [as The Jesus Lizard] / Burning Love [as Hot Snakes] / Members Of Phedre, Hooded Fang, Moon King And Hellaluyah [as Beastie Boys] / Cellphone [as Metallica] / The Siilk Group (Members Of Ell V Gore, Yacht Club, Sheezer, Sissy Boy And Leslie Spits) [as The Doors] / Dana Wright [as Eminem] / Dilly Dally [as U2] / Blonde Elvis [as Buzzcocks] / Mexican Slang [as Babes In Toyland] / Nyssa, Little Junior And Nasa Valley [as Rod Stewart] / Sahara (Members Of Little Girls, Mausoleum And Sexy Merlin) [as Tears For Fears] / Sunset Pig (Members Of The Deadly Snakes, Highest Order And B-17) [as JJ Cale] / B-17 [as New York Dolls] / The BB Guns [as Primal Scream] / Members Of Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs And Gay [as ELO] / Whimm [as Wire] / Members Of Surinam, Das Rad, Ostrich Tuning And Schonsee [as Suicide] / Cell Memory [as Jesus And Mary Chain] / Jigsaw Youth [as Bikini Kill] / Bad Channels [as Divine] / Avant Kool [as Depeche Mode]) / The Silver Dollar Room + Comfort Zone 2014-10-30 (Thursday) [FB event]

Halloween be crazy goofballs style to the max at the Silver Dollar as this multi-stage spectacular takes over the building with a cavalcade of local stars doing in-costume cover sets. There will be unique one-offs aplenty — the diligence with this is being tackled can be seen by some of the custom-built bands listed above. Expect this one to be packed to the gills.
