It’s not Thanksgiving without a turkey, it isn’t Christmas without a tree, and it isn’t Halloween without the “Great Pumpkin” and the “Rocky Horror Picture Show”.
Since the “Great Pumpkin” isn’t a musical (although it does have some spiffy dance numbers), it doesn’t lend itself to musical performance.
“Rocky Horror”, on the other hand, fits the bill nicely, which is why the unconventional conventionists in The Scarlett Love Conspiracy have elected to perform the soundtrack in its entirety on stage at Rhythm & Brews while the film plays on the screen behind them.
It’s the ultimate tribute to the ultimate audience participation film and the Kilgores and Almlies are just the Transylvanians to pull it off (what’s for dinner, Travis?). The show is happening Oct. 30 at 9 p.m., but early arrivals (between 8 and 8:30 p.m.) can have their pictures taken with the band in front of a special backdrop just for the occasion.
Dust off your fishnets, load up the water guns, fill your pockets with rice, and come swim the warm water of…well, you know the rest. After all, it’s just a jump to the left.
