The Misfits @ Highline Ballroom, 12/16/12
The Misfits
The Misfits

The Misfits, or what remains of them (the band is now comprised of Jerry Only, Dez Cadena and Eric "Chupacabra" Arce, but not Danzig who hates them all and has done his own Misfits sets lately with just Doyle), played Highline Ballroom on December 16, a make up show for their Hurricane-Sandy-interrupted, annual Halloween shindig. With Attack, Heart of the Matter and Japanther all joined the crimson ghost on that rainy Sunday evening as well.

Right after Christmas, Japanther will play a few dates in Texas leading towards a New Year's Eve show in Austin. All tour dates are listed below, along with more pics from Highline ballroom and the "Misfits"' setlist.

I don't really understand seeing "Misfits" without Danzig... why would you do that? I'd rather see the Ted Leo Danzig impression than this.

I don't give a shit about Ted Leo, but I agree on the not seeing the Misfits without Danzig. AND I just got into the Misfits THIS year.

Misfits tribute bands are more fun because you don't need to hear the crappy new songs that Danzig didn't have a hand in penning. Two of my favorites are Misfats (obsese Misfits tribute) and Glen or Glenda (Misfits drag revue).

I totally agree - that's what I meant about rather seeing Ted Leo do the covers set. 42 songs listed above and at least half of them would suck no matter who was singing.

^ unclear on the concept of 'sausage'

the misfits aren't a band, they are a franchise. i'm sure if you give jerry enough money you can have one too...

^ jesus, that's not a bad idea.

Misfats rules! Definitely one of the best Misfits coverbands out there

Wow there really is a Misfats. Funny.
If it wasnt hard enough to take the two left over "original" versions serious in the first place.
