Heavy Metal Halloween Musical with The Chevy Chasers

Last time I saw the Chevy Chasers, Throne of Bone vocalist Michael Freiburger banged his head so hard, the bone-shaped metal nose ring that pierces his septum flew right out. Band leader Ryan Leyva (a.k.a. “Johnny Nails”) is just that sort of flashy, trashy frontman that inspires jewelry loss, but he’s also a technical player and solid rock songwriter who will instantly appeal to anyone fond of Them Crooked Vultures’ debut record. The Chasers were also wise to recruit Rob Nass (a.k.a. “the Ice Wizard”), a limber, long-locked guitarist who adds much to the mix, both aesthetically and sonically. HANNAH LEVIN
