Ask a child their favorite holiday and you’ll undoubtedly get the Hanukkahs, Christmas’sand Kwanzaa’s; because kids are opportunists who like getting things. However, there is one-second answer, and for those lucky parents out there, first answer that comes to mind for many of the rest of us: Halloween. The time of year when those of us who don’t need a reason to celebrate the macabre and morbid re-up on year long decorations for our abode. The Fall bring the mourning of Summer, and holy cow that’s a sweet sound to some of our sun baked ears. Unfortunately, it also brings Pumpkin flavored latte’s, but you have to take the good with the bad, right?
The Zoo Peculiar and Problem Child provide the soundtrack to an evening of rock and roll excess, spacey awesomeness and scantly clad bombshells.
Problem Child bring violence, mayhem and the devil may care attitude that made rock and roll dangerous in the first place. They snarl, sneer and will maybe get frothy suds all over your costume. No worries, they’re nice fellas when the moon isn’t full. The Zoo Peculiar, is an act that brings together the circus, power pop and folk tunes from outer space. They’re like Critters; like the movie Critters but nice folks who won’t eat your face.
The Burlesque dancers are a whose-who of scantly clad performers in the tri-county area. Candy Mundane, Spikey Van Dykey and Ruby Tesla will be in varies states of undress to perform their burlesque acts and sideshow performances that will surely be the sweet part of a mostly salty evening. When is there a better opportunity to dress up in your mom’s best work clothes, drink to excess, dance to great music and ogle the feminine wilds of women who would most likely eat you alive? The answer is there is no better time. Be at Propaganda or live a long life knowing you missed out on some hedonistic fun. Puritan.
Hardcore Halloween: A Night of Burlesque and Music, is Friday, October 28 at Propaganda in Lake Worth. Doors are at 8pm, $10, 18 and up.
