Mock ‘n’ roll

The mark of a truly superlative Halloween costume is commitment. Sure, you can get by with a half-hearted zombie nurse, but tame decisions beget tepid treats. Let’s say that you get your band together and tog up like legitimate music legends—now you’re getting somewhere. To really blow away the com-petition, you have to take the stage and remind the teeming masses exactly why these icons are worthy of your emulation. The Southern comes somewhat unstuck in time with the Mock Star’s Ball, featuring the Kings of Belmont as the Beatles, Illville Crew as Dr. Dre, Downbeat Project as Outkast, Anatomy of Frank as Radiohead, and From Here on Blue as Neil Young.

Wednesday 10/31 $10, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
