The Misfits was a serious influence on punk rock when the band emerged from the swamps of Lodi some 30 years ago. Its raw sound and crude, violent B-movie aesthetic helped seal the bands fate. Bands like Metallica, Guns 'N' Roses, My Chemical Romance, have all covered Misfits material. But alas, the Misfits can't take a joke. The last time The Misfits played Rochester, opening band The Isotopes's toastmaster roasted the band a little, leading to one Isotope getting sucker punched in the face and the band refusing to play until all of the Isotopes were ejected. The Isotopes will not be on this bill.

Misfits play Tuesday, October 20, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 7:30 p.m. $20-$25.;
