Hogscraper on Halloween!

I feel sorry for every other band on the planet, because Hogscraper has decided to perform a Halloween show, and let’s face it, when it comes to the full-scale Halloween vibe no one can compete with these guys. Banjo, drums and washtub bass sound like the recipe for some good old-fashioned Americana, but this is the stuff of nightmares. The performance will take place Saturday, October 27 at the Southgate House Revival at 111 E. 6th Street in Newport, Kentucky.  It’s good to see the Southgate House Revival up and running, and I’m glad to see that one of their first shows is going to be this reunion show by this trio, who play their own brand of satanic bluegrass. I used to catch Hogscraper while I was doing laundry at Sudsy Malone’s, and while I heard some loud music in that particular venue, this was scary loud even back among the washers and dryers. So bring ear plugs and a costume, and feel the dark forces raining down on you. Here’s some footage of Hogscraper performing at what was once a much-loved Laundromat on short Vine:
