5th Annual WCSB Halloween Masquerade Ball with Dead Milkmen/Numbskull/Party Plates/Kill the Hippies

When: Sat., Nov. 2, 9 p.m. 2013

The Dead Milkmen, a novelty punk act named after a character in a Toni Morrison novel, had a big underground hit with their 1985 debut Big Lizard in My Backyard. The album yielded the single “Bitchin’ Camaro,” a funny song that spins a narrative about two dudes who exchange a dim-witted conversation about wearing Motley Crue T-shirts and the fictional Doors tribute act Crystal Shit, ostensibly paving the way for dumbass duos such as Garth and Wayne and Beavis and Butthead. The band never really delivered on the promise of its debut and imploded in 1995. Though it reunited in 2004 to play the funeral of bassist Dave Schulthise, the band didn’t officially reform until 2008, and it’s resumed a schedule of touring and recording. Tonight’s show at Cleveland Public Theatre is part of WCSB’s fifth annual Halloween masquerade ball. Should be a blast. (Niesel)
