Last year, Crowbar’s yearly costumed-fundraiser Fangsgiving went hybrid with a virtual and scaled-back in-person event. This year, it’s not only 100% IRL, it's two nights, meaning a double dose of the best local bands—some costumed, some not—covering classics.

Expect to see trumpeter Kenny Pullin as Iggy Pop, Tampa’s “Queen of Pop” Jeremy Gloff as “Tina Turn-Him-On,” Urbane Cowboys taking on Weezer, and GM-turned-venue-activist Tom DeGeorge leading Not Huey and the Fake News. Fusion outfit Poetry ‘n’ Lotion also returns to celebrate the release of download-only Covered in Lotion.

Fifteen dollars will get you in for one night, or $20 for both which, on year four of Fangsgiving, still goes to benefit Gasparilla Music Fest’s Recycled Tunes program, which helps bring music education to local schools.

Fangsgiving IV w/Have Gun Will Travel/Poetry ‘n’ Lotion/Bangarang/Will Quinlan/Jeremy Gloff/more. Friday-Saturday, Oct. 22-23. $15-$20. 8 p.m. Crowbar, Ybor City. @crowbarlive on Facebook
