14th Annual Murder Ballads Bash 

Bands with a penchant for bloodlust.

Crimes of passion have been lyrical fodder for musicians across different genres and generations, so what better night to listen to music with a penchant for bloodlust than Halloween? The Starry Plough presents its 14th annual Murder Ballads Bash, a showcase of local bands and singer-songwriters whose work delves into dark and potentially frightful themes of revenge, misery, and despair. In the large lineup, readers may recognize Dennis D (who hosts a banjo night at Stork Club on Sundays), The Happy Clams (whose members have been active in the East Bay punk scene since the Eighties), veteran rockers Roy Loney & Larry, and country quintet Loretta Lynch. We suggest dressing up for this one, too. Costume ideas: Velma Kelly or Roxie Hart from Chicago, Bonnie and Clyde, zombie Elvis, or Rihanna in the “Bitch Better Have My Money” video.
