Dont tell Mama you will be at the Psychobilly Spookshow in Little Haiti tonight -- that sounds suspicious enough already. You might have to admit youll be bopping to rockabilly greasers the Van Orsdels. Whats she gonna say about that slick-backed hair, those punky tattoos, and the fact theyll be leaving town on tour very soon? Or maybe shell start to panic when you mention the Panix are also playing. Dont get stuck explaining what a Reynosa is. (Its skulking in from Pensacola.) But whatever you do, be very quiet about the Zombie Vandals and Cedric Abando and the Broken Condoms carpet-bagging in from New York City. When she hears all of this, shell either worry about you ending up in a haunted grave in the Everglades, or shell ditch you at home, doll herself up, and head to Churchills Pub (5501 NE Second Ave., Miami). Tickets cost seven bucks. The ghouls crawl out at 9:00. Ages eighteen and older are welcome. Call 305-757-1807, or visit www.churchillspub.com.
