Halloween in Hollywood
If you have never been to Hollywood on Halloween, you are missing pure insanity! Halloween 2010 was off-the-chain, with close to ½ a million people descending on West Hollywood for Costume Carnival on Santa Monica Blvd. A block up; on Sunset, the craziness, the costumes and the fun was in full effect as well…and so was the music.
The Murderdolls and Gemini Syndrome were at The Roxy, The Spazmatics at The Key Club and Suffocation with The Faceless were performing at The Whiskey, making it a night to remember on The Sunset Strip.
Fresh of the release of their album Women and Children Last http://hollywoodmusicmagazine.com/albumreviews/murderdolls-women-and-children-last-cd-review/ The Murderdolls packed The Roxy for their 11 p.m. set. With a solid fan base, Joey Jordison and Wednesday 13, provided the perfect opportunity for a band to set the tone not only for The Murderdolls but to disperse their music to a whole new audience. Gemini Syndrome was anointed for that chance and seized the opportunity.
With a crowded Roxy on Halloween night, the excited fans got an unexpected treat with the performance of GS, as they were the only opener for Murderdolls. With each show, Gemini Syndrome plays their heart out and makes new fans. This being probably their biggest show to date provided the perfect stage to give what I can honestly say was their best show I have seen so far. With the signature stage presence and lights, they completely killed their 30 minute set and for all those onlookers that came for the Murderdolls and had no idea who they were, they converted them to Synners as well.
Halloween in Hollywood is quite an event and also, not as dangerous as some might think. There were very few arrests, but there were some great costumes, a Guiness record was set with the biggest group of people doing the Time Warp and just general fun. There is great music, fun people and if you ever have the chance, I invite you all to come join us at Hollywood Music on Halloween because if there is music that doesn’t suck involved, we are there.
