It's that haunted time of year, which means it's the perfect month for L.A. band PLaNETS to take over Mondays at the Satellite. At heart — surely a brooding, wounded heart — PLaNETS make glammy, theatrical rock, which comes off like The Cramps fed through the same machines that made Iggy's The Idiot and Bowie's Low, a creepy-crawly soundtrack for a big stage at the end of the world. Live, they're a different animal or, more accurately, several kinds of animals … or zombies, or robots, depending on who's dressing up as what. Call it music by and for people who might be ready to wear costumes all year round but who really bring out the big guns (and fangs and batwings) in October.

Mon., Oct. 6, 9 p.m.; Mon., Oct. 13, 9 p.m., 2014
