It's on today!

Volcanoblastart ROCK
Hell’s Kitchen
So, Halloween is today, a Wednesday, which kind of blows. It kind of limits the amount of hell you can raise, and definitely the amount of booze you can drink. Unless you’re unemployed, I suppose. Or maybe you just roll like that?

To each his own.

In my humble opinion, though, a holiday just isn’t a holiday without booze. Luckily, after MDC and Citizen Fish play an early all-ages show at Hell’s Kitchen on Halloween, a sausage party will commence, featuring SOK and the Faggots, the Outfit, and Bumma Stoge. If you’re the kind of person who gets piss drunk on Wednesday, Halloween at the Kitchen may be your prescription. One dollar PBRs can keep you company all night for a reasonable price, and let’s be honest â€" after six or seven PBRs, everything tastes the same. Don’t try to tell me you’re above it. â€" Matt Driscoll

Scary times at The Eastside tonight

Jimmidavieshalloween You’ve been there, seen it in person: tens of thousands of South Sounders keeping it weird, looping around Fourth and Fifth Avenues in downtown Olympia, popping into bar after bar for shots. Maybe you don’t want to drink Flaming Dr. Peppers and Irish Car Bombs All Hallows Eve. Maybe you want a little rock to go with your half moon. One of the most rocking will be The Dirty Birds and The Scuzztones tonight at The Eastside Club.

The Weekly Volcano caught up with The Dirty Birds’ frontman Jimmi Davies before tonight’s show.

WEEKLY VOLCANO: What was your best Halloween costume?

JIMMI DAVIES: One year the whole band dressed in drag. I was the "Naughty Nurse," complete with a lacey little bra, mini-skirt, fish nets, and of course â€" a big long stethoscope. I was hot. Mick Jagger hot.

VOLCANO: What scares you?

DAVIES: Tacoma. Bobble Tiki's set list fetish. Rectal exams.

VOLCANO: Who's the scariest musician you've ever met?

DAVIES: Dana Colley from Morphine is one scary dude. He intimidated the crap outta me. He isn't mean or anything, he just looks it. And I guess the fact that he can play the Hell out of ANY sax, or even two saxes at a time, sure puts me in my place as well.

VOLCANO: Who is the scariest Scuzztones member?

DAVIES: Individually, they are all as sweet as fuzzy kittens. But I'll tell ya what, put them together with instruments in hand and they become a force of absolute rock-n-roll terror. I shudder with fright just thinking about it.

VOLCANO: Don’t you think Dirty Birds’ bassist Tim Brown has scary bass skills?

DAVIES: Yes, and the fact that he's like 12 feet tall doesn't hurt either.

VOLCANO: What are some of the scariest cities you've played?

DAVIES: In no particular order: Sacramento, L.A., Tacoma … Stanwood.

VOLCANO: Planning anything special for Halloween night at the Eastside?

DAVIES: Simply to rock you so hard your face will melt off of your skull. Dig it? â€" Brad Allen
