4th Annual Come As You Aren't Halloween Band Battle!
More cowbell! For the fourth year in a row, local rockers are going incognito as their favorite stars for Skylark’s “Come As You Aren’t” Halloween battle of the bands.
12 acts have 3 songs each to wow the crowd, as they out-rock and glam each other for possession of the coveted Golden Cowbell™. Is that Watch It Sparkle or The Doors? Levi Fuller or The Fall? Skylark regulars Nine N Out and Stevedore or Girlschool and T. Rex? Helen Chance, who last year channeled David Bowie, will conjure the female form of Blondie. Even Elliott Smith’s spirit will make a ghoulish visit in the form of M. Bison.
This event is free, 21+, and has always been Skylark's biggest night of the whole year. Costumes! Props! Band rivalries!
*Please note this year is NOT on Halloween itself, but the day before.*

8:00pm LEVI FULLER as The Fall
