It’s that most wonderful time of the year—Halloween, when awesome bands pretend to be other awesome bands and you can finally drink beers and sing along to songs that you’d otherwise need a time machine to enjoy live. This year, South Bay indie stalwart Otik Records tapped six local bands to transform into four punk/pop/bubblegum legends—well, five, if you count the way Thee Cormans and the South Bay Surfers team up for a two-headed cover band doing crucial Texan punkers the Dicks and the Big Boys. Icky and the Splooges were already ready for a Stooges cover band, while Feral Kizzy is going Patti Smith and a Bombon/87s team-up is taking over Josie and the Pussycats! The show is free if you come in costume—that’s the spirit, right? (And who dares assemble the Roky Erickson and the Aliens cover band? Who dares?!)
