Music Spotlight 

Greetings, guys and ghouls. There are some wicked bad shows this infernal eve promising plenty of treats, musically speaking. Here's a sampling of live musical events:

Raleigh:

Kings has Evilive, who call themselves "N.C.'s premier Misfits cover band." No word on whether they'll be sporting Devil locks, but they promise to have costumes, smoke and more (they're doing the classic, Glenn Danzig era). Any chance to hear someone bellow, "Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?" or croon, "I Want Your Skull" is well worth checking out. Also on the bill is Mimic, an all-female metal outfit, and Skurvy, a group of knaves who think they're punk pirates. Call 831-1005 for details.

The Lincoln Theatre's Halloween Bash features local jammers Barefoot Manner, a high-energy newgrass combo that incorporates funk, reggae and rock. The group just released their debut album, Mannerisms, and they're planning to go all out for the show: There'll be a costume contest, prizes, special guests and more. Doors open at 9 p.m. Call 821-4111 for details.

The Humble Pie's festivities include a costume contest and jazzcats The King Rippers doing a "Halloween Funeral March." If you haven't seen the Rippers, they can play anything from funk and R&B to classic New Orleans Dixieland. It's scary how good these guys are. Call 829-9222 for details.

Chapel Hill:

Local 506 is throwing their annual Halloween Bash, featuring the best in local musicians doing their annual over-the-top, tribute band thing. This year's acts are "The Ramones," "Johnny Thunders" and "The Cramps." Traditionally, this is the best rock club in Chapel Hill to get your ya-yas out. (without resorting to the drunken pageantry that is Franklin Street). Call 942-5506 for details.

The Cat's Cradle: You can blow off Halloween and go see the one-man myth that is singer-songwriter Dashboard Confessional. (Bring your own candy corn.)

The Cave: Scare them haints away with the raucous twang of Hobart Willis and the Back Forty, who no doubt have a few tricks up their sleeve. The treat is The Cave's fine, affordable selection of brews. Call 968-9308 for details.
