Live Ledge #130: Halloween

It's my new favorite tradition - a Halloween-themed episode sometime before the big day. In past years, though, it's been a breeze to pick out songs for this show. Not this year. Where are all the new punk rock tunes about ghosts, ghouls, vampires, and everything else associated with this great holiday? Since I try to not duplicate past shows, it became a worrisome process to produce a usable setlist for the night.
Worrisome until earlier this week, when a great new album was released. Mondo  Zombie Boogaloo is collaboration between Los Straitjackets, Southern Culture on the Skids, and The Fleshtones. Each band produced a handful of songs, and then everybody sang on the Spanish-language version of "Monster Mash". Now I have a show!
This is the perfect soundtrack to play when the neighbor kids come over for candy next Thursday. Play it loud, and play it proud! Grab this from iTunes, Stitcher, or...
