This weekend Reflection's transforms into Transylvania as Dalhousie's Theatre Society saves Halloween by putting on four live performances of the sexy and spooky holiday classic, Rocky Horror. A team of four directors (Sam Horak, Rebecca Schneidereit, Morgan Melnyk and Mark Oliver) teamed up to make a "more grunge rock" version of the creepily campy production. And the music, you can thank The Fantods for that. "After witnessing their Nick Cave cover band last Halloween, we knew they were the perfect band for the challenge," says Adrian Bruhm (who'll play Eddie on Sunday and Monday) of choosing the spook rockers to join in on the fun. "Their band name is another word for the heebie-jeebies and that's the vibe we want the audience to feel, so overall we knew it was a good choice."

Fri Oct 28-Mon Oct 31, Reflection's, 5184 Sackville St, 8pm (Fri, Mon), 9pm (Sat, Sun), $10, tickets: Obsolete Records, Taz Records, Venus Envy
