Wednesday 13 w. Eden Burning & Gandis Gun

Release Date: 2008-08-13

Gear up for a night of fun, rockin’ horrorpunk as Wednesday 13 zips through San Antonio in support of his spiderweb-laced new album, Skeletons. Wednesday has strapped the guitar back on for this tour — a car crash resulting in a broken collarbone forced him to abandon the axe last time — but the flashy frontman is back and he’s all energy. For the unfamiliar, think early Alice Cooper tinged with ’80s metal — some campy, horror flick-inspired material with a biting edge. News from camp 13: Skeletons is selling well, the new Bloodwork EP is a tour-exclusive, and a recent partnership with Hot Topic has given the band a bigger platform. They’re also anticipating the kickoff of their fall European tour — a sweet Halloween gig at the famed London Astoria. Release the bats! $12.50/15, 7pm, Scout Bar, (210) 494-7700.
