Notable Sometime during the holiday season, Human Host will release a new album called Creature Mountain. Each year, the band puts on a free Halloween show - and for good reason.
Quotable "Human Host's work complements Halloween perfectly and vice versa because of the conscious, joyous distortion of people's identities, which results in the distortion of reality," Apichella said. "It's like feet-on-the-ground, head-in-the-clouds for most people that one day. For Human Host, that's a year-round thing. It's required to be a member of the band."
If you go Human Host performs tomorrow at the Hexagon, 1825 N. Charles St. Doors open at 9 p.m. Free. Go to myspace.com/lofisocialclub. The band: myspace.com/humanhost.
