Tonight’s show was going to find me exhausted long before I even walked in to the venue for it seemed as only a few hours before that I was leaving the show that the legendary Carcass had held over at the nearby Nokia Theater. The band headlined a six band bill and to do the Metal thing properly we were on point for every single band and this show started early and ended late. Since Sunday’s show was to feature another influential musical personality I had to muster my strength and get myself back into action for it. The guitarist who is well known as Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein comes to us originally from The Misfits and while he had appeared at a number of Danzig shows for the brief Misfit set, he had not done that in awhile and was now adventuring out on his own. The band is called Gorgeous Frankenstein and the show would be at our home away from home B.B. King Blues Club and find three other interesting acts in tow. Figuring we saw some special stuff the night before by arriving early we opted to do so again and see what transpired. Here is the way that the night played out.

The Misfits @ B.B. King Blues Club (10/31/2008)

The Misfits were nothing less than a ground breaking group when they formed so long ago and delivered unto the macabre music maniacs their unique brand of Horror Punk. While many lineup changes have occurred since the earlier days, the band now finds bassist Jerry Only accompanied by drummer Robo and guitarist Dez Cadena. Tonight for Halloween 2008 the band would perform a killer set of material with special guest openers Johnny B. Morbid, Until Destiny and Martyrd. We were on point to document the performance and also to rock out in proper attire for the night. Scroll past the logo below to be taken to our item.

Halloween Night in New York City is generally an unforgettable time and when you add to this fact that it was a Friday and was going to find me at The Misfits show at my home away from home venue of B.B. King’s, well, you can imagine the hell raising that was going to be taking place this evening. The interesting thing for me was that while a long time fan of the bands music I never caught them back in the day when Glen Danzig fronted them, but I did enjoy when the former singer did a short set of Misfits classics a few years ago during his tour and brought out the bands monster axe slinger Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein. The band is now comprised of bassist Jerry Only, guitarist Dez Cadena and drummer Robo who together deliver the classics like only this grouping possibly can. The spirit of the evening found me digging up an old mask and wig to walk among the costumed fans of the band that had convened inside B.B. King Blues Club and with the opening bands being three groups that I had already seen I was very excited to see what was going to take place this evening.
