Danzig/Corrosion of Conformity/Mutoid Man/Acid Witch

When: Thu., Sept. 14, 6:30 p.m. 2017

Known as one of rock’s more cantankerous characters, singer Glenn Danzig refuses to discuss the Misfits, the horror-punk band that he founded. After they broke up in 1983, bassist Jerry Only reformed the Misfits in 1995, and Danzig sued Only in the attempt to get a cut of the profits from the merch that Only had licensed, allegedly in secret. Danzig lost, and Only carries on the band's legacy while Danzig focuses on his solo career. Danzig, who grew up in Lodi, New Jersey, in the ’70s, gravitated toward horror at an early age. He liked Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. He also liked history. he channeled those interests into his Goth-inpsired music. And it's paid off. Danzig had a big hit in 1988 with “Mother,” a grim song with bellowing vocals and a heavy guitar riff. While that song introduced him to the MTV generation, he's continued to steadily cultivate an underground fanbase in the wake of that success (and has even reunited Samhain on occasion). Expect to hear "Mother" along with other songs from his solo catalog at tonight's show. (Niesel)
