Come As You Aren't! The 5th Annual Halloween Battle of The Bands 10/29
For the fifth year in a row, local rockers are going incognito for Skylark’s "Come As You Aren't" Halloween battle of the bands. This show is always free!
All fourteen acts have 3 songs each to wow the crowd and judges, as they out-rock and glam each other for possession of the coveted Golden Cowbell™. Is that Clutch Douglass or Salt 'n' Pepa? Hotels or The Misfits? Behold the supergroup formed from Stevedore and Mannequin BBQ as they channel The Supremes, and shiver as experimental duo Perish The Island entertains with selections from Goblin's soundtrack to Suspiria. Diversity and virtuosity have always set this event apart, and this year's lineup is no exception.
Set times are approximate:
8:00pm Willow & Kevin Wood as GILLIAN WELCH & DAVID RAWLINGS
8:20pm Perish The Island as GOBLIN (Suspiria soundtrack)
8:40pm Julia Massey & The Jesus Rehab as ARCADE FIRE
9:00pm Bone Cave Ballet as BJORK
9:20pm Supernauty as THE RAMONES

11:20pm D.evolution.Aires as ZZ TOP
11:40pm Sweet Secrets as THE CURE

KEXP DJ and founding member of the Young Evils Troy Nelson, two-time Golden Cowbell winner Lori Campion, Seattle Subsonic writer Dave O'Leary, and Skylark owner-booker Jessie SK will judge the bands.
The Golden Cowbell and runner-up prizes will be awarded shortly following the last set.
