Oct 26 - Toronto - Blacktooth Ent. Presents: A Horrorbilly Halloween w/ The Matadors + Hellcat & The Prowl + Butch Haller & His Chesterfield Ramblers and The Satans.
We just love it when a band invents its very own genre. Somewhere between rockabilly and psychobilly lies the necrotic landscape of Horrorbilly, sez here in the travel guide. Also sez dudes out of London ON are the world’s leading purveyors of this kind of creepy, hell raisin’ take on good ol’ devil music.
Called The Matadors and fronted by Hooch, known to take a bull by the balls and call a spell a spell They’ve built a rabid fan base in Toronto who’re all a-slaver for Friday night’s horrorshow.
The good news for them is that the genre is creeping like a strangle vine across Ontario and The Matadors will have lots of like-minded company. Helping with the mayhem are Hellcat & The Prowl, Butch Haller & His Chesterfield ramblers and The Santas. Sorry, The Satans but you just never know.
There will be a costume contest so you’ve been warned. While dating your cousin is acceptable on this holy night, dressing as Tobe Hooper is not. Too much of a cliché.
Friday, October 26 at Hard Luck Bar (772 Dundas Street West).
