Senior Daniel Pfannstiel will be hosting the Halloween “Rocktoberfest” at Lizard’s on Thursday, Oct. 27. The rock concert will feature the talents of four local bands and one band from Houston and will last from 8 p.m. until 12 p.m. Cover charges will be $2 for any patron under 21, but the show will be free to all others.
“This would be a great opportunity for students to get out to see great live music and still be able to watch the World Series, which I’m sure will be playing on the club’s televisions,” Pfannstiel said in an email to The Houstonian.
The show will be co-headlined by the Shortbus Superheros and O’Doyle Rules, who were voted Houston’s Best Pop Punk Band in 2005’s Houston Press Music Awards.
Shortbus Superheros features Pfannstiel on bass, Glen Tate on vocals and guitar, Daniel Wilson and Greg Cox on guitar and Kevin Chubirka on drums. O’Doyle Rules includes Scott Doyle on guitar and vocals, Matt Hone on bass and vocals and Bill McGraw on drums.
Also playing are “fun-to-watch” Jimano, alternative rockers Undercrowd, (which features Garrett Lofgren of GOAT Productions) and well-known local staple Por Victoria, who appears regularly with Chi Alpha.
“This is a huge local event, and I want to get the word out to all live music fans or those just looking for a good time on pre-Halloween Thursday night,” Pfannstiel said.
After Thursday’s show, O’Doyle Rules will also be performing at Java Jazz Coffee House in Houston on Nov. 5, The Harbour in Baytown on Nov. 18 and at Rayford Community Center in Spring on Nov. 19. The Shortbus Superheros have future shows scheduled at Ace Park on Oct. 29 in Livingston, at Zapatos on Nov. 3 in College Station and at Fuel Cyber Cafe on Nov. 12 in Humble.
