TONIGHT - Duran Duran in Boston!



'TIS THE SEASON OF SCARES & ZOMBIES - Continuing a long tradition here in Boston, bands celebrate their Halloween spirit by playing make-believe and covering other bands. We saw this first hand last night at Great Scott where four bands did their best to cover some of Britain's best acts from the last thirty years. (Sorry, no Stone Roses - but we really, really liked The Honors as The Smiths and Televandals as The Clash!) The fun continues tonight throughout the city. (Our friends at Boston Band Crush have already done great work at inventing the wheel, so to speak; here is their LIST of local Halloween events.)

Of particular interest to us, anyway, is Boston's The Luxury stepping out as Duran Duran. This band of rock perfectionists (it helps to have the driven frontman Jason Dunn steering things) have been practicing like mad. What we have below are some of their rehearsal demos. Check 'em out live tonight as they rock Church of Boston with three outstanding cover acts.


ON THE BILL TONIGHT: The Lights Out rock out as Phil Collins, Gene Dante & the Future Starlets star as The Runaways and we suspect that Sidewalk Driver will sound just about perfect covering David Bowie aka Ziggy Stardust!) All we can say is that Halloween really is the sweetest of holidays. If you are outside the region, find a local music venue near you and scare up some fun!
