Like Marilyn Manson, or old school Alice Cooper, Lizzy Borden is the name of both the band and the frontman. The band formed in 1983 and balanced on that line between heavy metal and glam rock, with a horror edge that fans of those aforementioned artists would enjoy. Last year saw the release of My Midnight Things, Lizzy Borden’s first new album in 11 years since 2007’s Appointment With Death. It’s great that the band is still active, while in the live environment they still give their everything. It’s easy to turn up your nose at bands like Borden, but they’re all about fun and this one is taking place on Halloween — who better to enjoy that holiday with?
Lizzy Borden plays with Crash, Kore Rozzik, Vile A Sin, and The Road Vikings at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 31 at the Whisky A Go Go.
