American Werewolves

With Above This Fire, and Kill the Fall. 9 p.m. Saturday, October 28, $6. The Grog Shop, 2785 Euclid Hts. Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216-321-5588.


As the American Werewolves sing: Tonight, they're gonna get their kicks, tonight -- just like the horror flicks. Cleveland's top gloom-doom-horror bands will co-headline a special Halloween show. The Wolves' blend of '50s pop and old-school hardcore only gets smoother with age, and -- unlike so-called emo bands -- they can pack a song with emotion without sounding like sissies with skinned knees. Kill the Fall plays blackened rock and roll for a gray world. Costumes are optional, but when the bands tear apart the stage props, you don't want pumpkin-splatter all over your best club clothes.
