Misfits Turn Times Square Into Times Scare on Halloween Night in New York City
There’s no better way to spend Halloween than with Horror punk icons the Misfits, who tore up B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square in New York City last night (Oct 31).
Bassist-vocalist Jerry Only rocked made the venue feel like CBGBs in the ’80s as the entire place turned into one giant mosh pit. Guitarist and back up vocalist Dez Cadena and drummer Eric “Chupacabra” Arce gave the fans a treat with great stage presence. Not to mention the stage itself was a sight to see, including skeletons and bones hanging from mic stands and the drumset itself looked like a creation from the mind of director Tim Burton.
Fans crowd surfed on stage and jumped back into a sea of fellow misfits. A turning point in the show was during the performance of a new song ‘Father,’ where a fan got on stage and fell onto Jerry Only and his mic stand and interrupted the performance.
Jerry proved to be one bad-ass frontman, as he grabbed the intruder (who now looked terrified) and tossed him back into the unforgiving crowd. “You can come onstage just don’t knock over my s–t” said Only smiling wide.
The Misfits also performed fan favorites such as ‘Jack the Ripper,’ ‘Die Die Darling,’ ‘Skulls’ and of course ‘Halloween’ among many others.
Chicago natives of Juicehead opened up the show with an impressive set that featured an old school punk sound. Stickman Mike Garelli was sensational as he broke numerous drumsticks with an intense performance. Juicehead is also signed to Misfits Records, where they released their latest album ‘How to Sail a Sinking Ship.’
