Members of Hollow Earth, Weaves + Cell Memory - Band On The Run

For its massive fifth year of Hallowe'en covers, DEATH TO T.O. upsized from its home at The Silver Dollar/Comfort Zone to Lee's Palace and the Dance Cave. That allowed it to keep its sprawling two-stage upstairs/downstairs dynamic even as it accommodated a bigger crowd than ever. Besides curating no fewer than seventeen (!) short sets, Dan Burke and Elliot Jones also kept things running on schedule, with one set starting quite crisply as the one on the other stage ended for nearly the whole night. And as always, the bands put in a lot of work — not just musically, but a lot of the time in trying to capture the look and mannerisms of the band they were covering.

Adam Terejko's vocals sometimes had a bit more of a yowl than Macca's smoothness, but the Linda-less band jumped into the busy arrangements with gusto, sounding at their best when they got into the change-the-style medley vibes of this tune and (the admittedly non-Wings) "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey".
