IS EVERYWHERE!
JAMBANDS.COM
Monsters of Folk, the "supergroup" consisting of My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Conor Oberst, M. Ward and Mike Mogis, celebrated Halloween at Kentucky's Louisville Palace. The group played its standard mix of originals and individual member solo cuts before taking a twenty-minute break near the end of the night.

The musicians then returned in full KISS costumes and makeup for covers for the glam-rock band's "Detroit Rock City" and "Rock and Roll All Nite!"

Meanwhile, over in New Orleans at the Voodoo Music Festival, the Drive-By Truckers Patterson Hood offered his own nod to KISS by performing in the signature makeup of the Spaceman.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Maybe they're now eligible for the cover of AARP magazine, but Simmons and mates rock as hard as ever

By William Weir

The 60-year-old rock-star club is boosting its ranks -- joining this year are Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and, maybe most shockingly, Kiss co-founder Gene Simmons.

"It means as much as you want to make it seem," Simmons says of age. Along with the three other members of Kiss -- all in full Kiss regalia -- Simmons is waiting this night to go on stage for a sold-out show at Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut. The dressing rooms are marked off for each member of Kiss, as well as one for "Pyro" -- fire being a classic part of any Kiss show. Not much happens pre-show -- besides the road crew and some hangers-on, the guys of opening act Buckcherry wander about, as does veteran rock manager Doc McGhee. The members of Kiss are nowhere to be seen until they show up in McGhee's room for an interview.

"I will tell you that we are playing longer than we have ever played. As you can see, this is not kid stuff. You have to be pretty strong to be able to physically do 2 1/2 hours of rocking the house."

An explosive tribute band (featuring two Paul Stanleys!) capped off the festival, complete with lots of pyro and effects. The KISS Army is alive and strong in Europe!
