Celebrate Halloween country style with 10 spooky songs
Want to celebrate this Halloween country style? Head on down to the Hexagon Bar come Monday night for the Hot Roxx Halloween Hoedown Hextravaganza.
Along with Hot Roxx compadres Jen Hughes and Macku$, I'll be spinning country tunes between cover sets by the Flying Dorito Brothers (featuring members of Night Moves covering the Flying Burrito Brothers), the Sister Magnets and Brothers Steel (featuring members of Ear Candy, Pink Mink, National Bird, Red Flags), Blackberry Brandy Boys (featuring members of ELnO and Little Man), and Amos Moses (synth Jerry Reed covers featuring one member of Heavy Deeds and, well, me, your weekly country music pal).
