Stuff I Do When I’m Bored 13

What in the Samhain Hot Links

Cantina Blues, Kevin MacLeod (2008) His music is ubiquitous, he’s composed 1,000s of tunes and soundtrack material, and, because of his disdain for copyrights, he gives it away. Some of MacLeod’s work is free for download on his website, and a documentary is coming.

Not sure why anyone would want to avoid Halloween candy leftovers, but here’s a calculator.
[h/t Innocent Bystanders]

No masks, no clown or priest costumes, no corsets, no trick-or-treating for 14 year olds, no Sunday celebrations, no fake mustaches in church, no silly string. In some places, no Halloween PERIOD. Know the Halloween Laws.

Saturday Matinee – The Firebirds, Dracula’s Daughters, Mad Jack & the Hatters, and The Meteors

The Firebirds were the only British band to play the 2002 Rockabilly Festival, which marked the 50th anniversary of Sun Records and 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death.

Dracula’s Daughters are Emily & Elizabeth Butters (with Forrest Butler and Jim, Mitch & Elias from Boston’s Triple Thick).

Mad Jack and the Hatters are, um, interesting…

Formed in South London in 1980, The Meteors are considered the first verifiable psychobilly band (and the second band to use the term).

Halloween be upon us, so carve a squash, spook the kids, mock the mask-mongers and have fun sending the Aos Sí back to their hidey holes for another year. See you back here for tricks and treats tomorrow.
