Nightlife Highlights: The Misfits 

October 14. It just ain’t October if the Misfits aren’t haunting the Chance. Every Halloween season, the legendary New Jersey horror punks make their return, their winkingly ghoulish songs and aesthetic dovetailing (batwinging?) all too well with the high holiday of plastic fangs and razor blade-filled apples. Although bassist-singer Jerry Only is the sole original member—founding front man Glenn Danzig left to take the concept to its humorlessly absurd conclusion long ago—the current lineup also stars ex-Black Flag guitarist Dez Cadena. With the Hub City Stompers, Welcome to Green Haven, and more. (Taking Back Sunday plays October 28; the Cro Mags crush October 29.) 7:30pm. $20. Poughkeepsie. (845) 471-1966; www.thechancetheater.com.
