Want To See The Misfits in NYC on 12/16/2012?

“Happy Halloween New York City!!!!” Oh wait……that was months ago so why am I wishing it to you all with December well underway. Let me explain. Recently that nasty storm Sandy really did a number on the city and in its wake many shows were cancelled while others rescheduled to later dates and this finds the mighty Misfits doing their annual Halloween show just in time for the Christmas Slay-son…. The band will be joined by Attack, Japanther and Heart Of The Matter to make it all the more interesting. I wonder how many fans will be showing up for this Horrorday Celebration in costume. Perhaps this will see the beginning of a “Merry Mayhem Misfits Christmas” theme of shows like we find Twisted Sister doing these last few years. All I know is that I am excited to be attending as press and thanks to the fine folks at the Highline Ballroom some of the PiercingMetal fans will be joining in for the fun.

  1. This is the perfect and better way to end up this year by moshing to the authentic Horror punk band The Misfits. Since a small child i’ve been in love with the misfist their look, their songs and the vibe they put out.. The cool thing i like about them is their agression they put out on their songs, their original authentic Devil Lock hair style and their amazing sick outfits.. Even tho the only original member of the misfits left is Jerry Only the band is still stronger than ever. Their new album Devils Rain is such an amazing album, that bough a lot of the old school style.. No matter what the line-up since Danzig era to Michael Graves ever the Misfits will always stay alive “Last Caress” m/ Fiend club forever!

  2. What better way to goodbye to this year than going to see Misfits. I love this guys, no matter who the singer is Graves or Jerry i count on them to give a hell of a performance. They sound great live they put on amazing shows. Famous Monsters is an amazing album and i love hearing those songs live! Devils Rain is a HELL of an album freaking great!! No other band will do what the Misfits have done. They will live forever! to experience them live is great opportunity. Whether you only see them once and only once you have feel the vibe and the excitement these guys bring, ” Fiend Club Forever!”

  3. I wanna see the Misfits because seeing them on Halloween has been a tradition of mine for years. I didn’t get to celebrate Halloween this year, so I would like to keep horror business alive! Sunday night!

    1. This was a great comment but you didn’t let us know who you were so we could not select you. Just when I thought I had completely covered all good practices, I am surprised again. Oh well.

  5. I remember when I first heard the misfits I just wanted to go on a rampage, maybe it was their simple yet fast riffs. Ever since hearing ” Helena” I’ve been in LOVE. I’ve been playing guitar for 4 years now and every time I play a misfits song I become more and more of a fan. I’ve been listening to the misfits for quite some time now and they still manage to give me those chills down my spine, not only because of the lyrics but because of their “evil” sound. The lineup is the least of my worried because what matters is the music, now matter what they always put out 100% punk with a dash of scary. No matter what happens the misfits will always be alive in my heart fiend club for life. m/

  6. Hate all you want, but Jerry is hitting what 50/50 something this year? And he’s still going at it! That alone demands respect, but he’s also doing an absolutely stellar job of bringing the Misfit’s music to the stage live as YouTube videos from their latest concerts will show you. The Misfits’ music is just amazing punk rock, and their influence has been far reaching, from within to punk community over into the metal realm as well. Remember, “Death Comes Ripping” but the Misfits’ music and their influence will live on!
