From the mouth of Magic Cyclops himself: The entertainer is being brought back from the dead for two nights of Halloween-inspired flashback madness, complete with (we're assuming) his usual self-deprecating stage banter and possibility of bodily harm.
Magic -- who last took to the stage in August, opening for Warlock Pinchers, which also marked the alleged breakup of Magic Cyclops -- will bring his ghoulish dance party to Fort Collins's Surfside 7 on October 30 and then the hi-dive on October 31. The DJ and professional air-guitar contender says he plans on turning the stage into an "elaborate graveyard complete with a tree, fencing, the whole nine yards." Oooh. Sounds spooky.
Magic Cyclops also promises this particular rise from the dead will be different, because at midnight each night, he will "turn from a party wuff into a werewolf who parties!" Who doesn't like a werewolf who parties? Let alone one who proudly claims he's from Davenport, Iowa.
