The Dead Milkmen will play a Halloweekend show at The Troc
It certainly is a good day for Halloween centric concert announcements from Philly punk bands. As Modern Baseball announced its three-night mid-October stand at Union Transfer with a flyer in costume, Philly icons The Dead Milkmen announced gave word that it would headline The Trocadero on Saturday, October 28th — a significant spot for the band, as it is where the band played its first farewell in 1994 and where it headlined on Halloween a couple years ago. Tickets are on sale Friday, August 25th at noon, more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Halloween is a great time of year for the band, particularly its goth-loving leader Rodney Anonymous, who two years ago delivered a chilling cover of Bauhaus’ “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” in the catacombs of Fairmount Park’s Laurel Hill Cemetery. Read a review of that show here, and check out a more recent cemetery video of the band doing Blue Öyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear The Reaper.”
