What a long, strange trip it's been for comedy-metal punk group Green Jelly. What began as Green Jello, the world's worst band, in Buffalo, New York, Green Jelly relocated to Hollywood and scored a surprise hit with "Three Little Pigs." The group's decades-long career has been characterized by a twisted sense of humor that leaves no cow sacred. The band's initial reputation for food fights or songs about serial-killer breakfast cereal characters might not be everybody's cup of soup, but it might be just right for you and your pumpkin. And if the jelly hits the fan, duck and cover. Psyopus and Beard Without a Moustache open.
Green Jelly performs Friday, November 30, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $15-$18. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
