Special Halloween show for special Halloween people, next Sat in SF. The Shut-ins open for The Muddy Roses at the Make-Out Room. Costume-positive! C'mon! Spookay murder ballads and whatnot.
John from the Shut-Ins presents a bunch of songs that were rejected by some or all of the other Shut-Ins for various reasons such as "that's stupid and it sounds like all the other songs," or "too obscure," or "too well-known" or "too sing-songy" or "too complicated" or "too simple." Well, so anyway, at least two of the Shut-Ins (John and Diana) will play these lonely abandoned songs, whilst joined by special guests Joe Kyle Jr (Howell Devine, Waybacks) on bass, Maurice Tani (77 El Deora and eponymous Country Noir master) on guitar, Steve Owen (Rock Soup Ramblers) on slide, and Robin Roth (Doorslammers et al) on drums. Opening the show will be the bewitching piano stylings of Rubina Mazurka!
