Men With Hats (Pearl Jam Do Devo for Halloween)







Bands pretty much get to wear masks and costumes every night. We couldn't decide whether this made Halloween particularly awesome or particularly mundane for bands. But we settled somewhere closer to awesome, because at least one day of the year everyone gets to join them in this and maybe they don't feel so alone. Then we wondered what is was like for Conor Oberst to not feel alone. Maybe he doesn't do Halloween concerts...

Regardless, when bands use the Halloween spirit to channel bands they would otherwise probably never come anywhere near, it falls much closer to awesome. And while the Weezer costumes may not have worked so well for Titus Andronicus, these Devo get-ups seem to be making the boys from Pearl Jam downright jovial for their cover of "Whip It." So embrace the semi-absurdity of the whole thing and enjoy this clip from the last show at Philly's now defunct Spectrum.
