Years before he first howled “Mother!” at the top of his lungs, heavy metal icon Glenn Danzig crooned punk-rock odes to the horror and sci-fi movies he grew up on with Misfits. Alongside bassist Jerry Only, guitarist Doyle, and a revolving door of drummers, Danzig’s voice helped birth the horror-punk movement of the late ’70s and early ’80s, and influenced generations of metal and punk bands in the years that followed. The band broke up in 1983 and was embroiled in legal battles for years, with Danzig experiencing later solo success, Only reviving the Misfits name in 1996 and performing with various lineups since, and Doyle performing off and on alongside both. The trio reunited in 2016 for festival appearances alongside Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Fantomas) on drums, but Los Angeles fans will be rewarded with a headlining set to end the year screaming along with “Last Caress” and other fan favorites.
