“We were playing at the Mercury Cafe with CementHead and Sick ’Em Fifi. All of us in Glad Hand decided that we were going to wear crazy, creepy costumes to go with our crazy, creepy music. John Getter, the guitar player, was dressed up as a creepy cowboy with a Michael Myers Halloween mask. Singer Dave Spurvey looked like a grasshopper with his face wrapped in green cellophane. And Mark White, the drummer, had what looked like bloody pantyhose with chains for hair pulled over his face.
The Fabulous Boogienauts’ New Year’s Eve Disco Ball Party will be at 3 Kings Tavern. They’ll play all night, with no cover.
