Rock & Roll All Night
For those of us who like to observe Halloween costumes (thank you, ladiesâ€¦furreal) but donâ€™t actually enjoy dressing up, the spookiest holiday can be a stressful time. We have to avoid a barrage of, â€śWhat are you wearing?â€ť conversations and God help you if you need to do something in the vicinity of Party City. This will probably never change, but there are little things that can help soften the blow. For example, Love Gun. Santa Feâ€™s beloved KISS tribute act. Comprised of a veritable whoâ€™s-who of Santa Fe talent (Mikey Baker, Andy Primm, Peter Williams and Micah Chapell), Love Gun blow minds and shreds hard year-round, but the Halloween show has traditionally been the candle in the pumpkin so to speak. Once the trick-or-treating is over and youâ€™re ready to knock back some beers and admire all the slutty attire on display, these knights in Satanâ€™s service are bound to pull your triggerâ€¦if you know what I mean.
