October has just barely begun, but we’re already psyched on the Halloween festivities. ‘Tis the season for candy, costumes, and kick-ass cover shows. This month is just packed with Boston’s best local bands rippin’ apart America’s hard rock heritage for our giddy delight. Watch the North Shore’s FAT CREEPS tear apart the Stooges and get excited for their cover show at Somerville’s Rosebud Diner along with The FAGETTES, FEDAVEES and EARTHQUAKE PARTY! next Saturday. See below a partial listing of other great cover shows occurring this month, and be sure to stay tuned to our CHOSEN SHOWS calendar for the most up-to-date listings. Hope you’ve started working on that awesome costume for the holidaze; you don’t want to be that lame kid caught wearing that same ol’ skeleton leotard.
