On the first frighteningly festive weekend associated with Halloween, it doesn't get much better than the covers unfolding at the fourth-annual Hot Roxx Halloween Hextravaganza at the Hexagon Bar. Expect spirited sets by the Springsteen tribute band Tramps Like Us, and a Roky Erickson tribute by Hard Roky Cafe (featuring members of Chambermaids/STNNNG, Gospel Gossip, Voytek, and Daughters of the Sun). Father You See Queen (pictured) will be covering electronic tunes from the '60s, Heavy Deeds will be paying tribute to country classics, and New York's the Marching Jaybirds have a set of time-honored throwback numbers planned. Hot Roxx DJs will keep the party going between sets, and there will also be a costume contest for all the ghosts, goblins, and PSYs who took the time to dress up.
