Artist of the day: Boney Fiend
It's Halloween week, so we'd better spotlight someone spooky. Someone like Boney Fiend.
Like an unholy cross between the Misfits and the Ramones, the group -- drummer/singer Jonny Fiend, guitarist Jimmy Bone, bassist Mikey Fiend and keyboardist Chad Ghoul'd -- has been playing raucous, horror-inspired punk around Tampa Bay on and off for a decade and a half.
They're known for spook-tacular Halloween shows -- the above photo is from a Halloween gig in 2004 -- and this year is no exception. Boney Fiend is playing at the Emerald on Saturday night with Doll Parts and Funeral Dazies. The show starts at 10 p.m.; tickets are $4.
