12 Halloween concert moments that made us say "Huh?"
For some musicians, everyday is Halloween. Most of the rest keep their freak flag tucked away in a closet until that magic day they book a concert on (or close to) Halloween. Either way, sometimes there's a camera nearby and, well, the captions just write themselves.
Cole Alexander of Black Lips chose a pilgrim costume for his performance at the Voodoo Music Experience on Oct. 31, 2009. He wanted to be a turkey, but then nobody would've known he was in costume.
Dave Draiman of Disturbed channels Hannibal Lecter during the 2008 "Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival." Wonder if Fava Beans and a nice Chianti were on his rider.
Shonna Tucker of the Drive-By Truckers issued a challenge when she chose to her KISS face paint at Voodoo Music Experience in 2009: "Who says The Spaceman can't be a girl?!"
Dressed as a chef, Cee-Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley either didn't have time to change clothes after his day job at the bakery, or the music was so good he was "cooking with gas" - at The Fillmore in San Francisco during the band's 2006 "St,. Elsewhere" tour.
Only three words are needed to go with this photo of Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "What is that?" - Sept. 9, 2009, Oakland, CA.
If you heart Sabina Sciubba of Brazilian Girls, her costume makes total sense. And no, it was not Feb. 14th. It was Oct. 17, 2009, during the Treasure Island Festival in San Francisco.
An unrecognizable Maynard James Keenan is a wannabe Weird Al in the video "White & Nerdy" as he performs with Puscifer on Nov. 4, 2009 in Oakland.
What a bloody shame. Kreashawn (R) and her sacrificial pink teddy bear perform on Oct. 29, 2011 in New Orleans.
Rut Roh! Andrew VanWyngarden (L) and James Richardson of MGMT show how its done, dressing as Scooby Doo characters. Arguably the best costume choice for a stage performance to date. New Orleans, LA, Oct. 31, 2010.
10. It's highly unlikely that anyone blushed when Jim James (R) and a fellow member of My Morning Jacket mooned the audience during the Voodoo Music Experience at City Park on Oct. 31, 2010 in New Orleans, LA.
11. Dressing up to perform during the "Halloween Hootenany Tour" 2010 was hella easy for John 5 of Rob Zombie's band. He was born dressed up for Halloween.
12. Yes, Virginia there is a Dee Snider of Twisted Sister dressed as Santa! And here's a photo to prove it. Taken during the band's "Twisted Christmas" show, Las Vegas Hilton, Dec. 15, 2009.
