It’s once again time for local bands to musically cosplay as their favorites. The Baby Bar Halloween Show returns with six sets of cover band hijinks. Perhaps the most seasonally appropriate set will come via Trash Casket playing Black Sabbath songs, but the rest of the lineup will also be loaded with familiar tunes: Uh Oh and the Oh Wells take on the allure of The Doors; Baloney gets grandiose with Pink Floyd tunes; Big Raffle will go on like a blister in the sun by playing Violent Femmes songs; Matthew Hughes (of Atari Ferrari) will take on the catalog of singer-songwriter Nick Drake; and Xurs covers influential English post-punk act Wire. It’s sure to be a graveyard smash.
