A stupendous Halloween spectacular is in store for phans of the legendary rock/jam band, Phish. Phish themselves may not be making an appearance in these parts any time soon, but thankfully we have A Live One to fill the void. Austin’s own Phish tribute band will be covering Phish covering The Blues Brothers and back to Phish again. Why Blues Brothers? In true Phish fashion, the boys will be sporting their musical Halloween costume by covering the songs of another band’s album in full. This year, get ready for a set of The Blues Brothers Soundtrack between two sets of killer Phishy awesomeness. That’s right, the 1980 classic comedy starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. You’ll know more songs than you think you do.
Three full sets = about 4 full hours of face melting madness. Come dressed in your most ridiculous costume to enter the costume contest, wear comfy shoes for non-stop powerdancing, drink plenty of fluids throughout the day and take an afternoon nap for optimal energy and strength. Now check out photos from last year’s Halloween Bash for added enthusiasm. I think you’re ready.
Do think about checking out this show if you’re a fan of good rock music. I’m talking lots of guitar and beautifully executed improvisational jams. Don’t think about checking out this show if you hate fun. A Live One has seriously scary talent and if they can’t make you into a believer, you’re doomed to an eternity of musical mediocrity. Come see what those phreaky phans have been raving about all this time….if you dare. Muaahahaaa!
A Live One, Big Halloween Bash takes place at Antone’s at 8:30 pm this Wednesday, Halloween night.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Buy them here.
