DANZIG
6 p.m., The Village. $25 adv., $30 d.o.s.

As scary metal front men go, it's hard to top Glenn Danzig. The man founded The Misfits, AKA the scariest, hookiest band in the punk era. In the process, he came up with the Misfits Skull, which has become a commonplace emblem of creepy menace — probably more so even than the music of The Misfits — on the hoodies and T-shirts of millions of kids. He pioneered the punk-rock pompadour (sort of like a greasy pony tail in the front), which, along with blacked-out eye make-up and a regular leather ensemble, helped advanced horror schlock style farther than anything since Alice Cooper popped out of a coffin. Sure, later, when he started up the Danzig, he may've dabbled a little too much in fishnet shirts, but for almost 35 years he's been kicking out reliably dark, cartoonishly gory punk, hardcore and metal anthems. Talk about getting ready for Halloween: Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Danzig within the span of a week? Start painting your faces, ghouls. Possessed, Marduk, Toxic Holocaust and Withered open on Wednesday.
