Spencer Fenimore, 30, is the singer for Pie in the Sky, which performs during the Satan’s Halloween Time Machine party at 7 p.m. Friday at House of Bricks, 525 E. Grand Ave.
Q: What’s the idea behind Satan’s Halloween Time Machine?
It’s Satan’s birthday party, and he celebrates by summoning the artists who have sold their soul to him over the years to come play his party. The irony is that hell’s not so bad. It’s kind of a rocking place, like a Motley Crue after-party that never ends.
The idea is to mix theater with what we normally do. Normally it’s just mashups and covers that we play in bars. But we got the idea to add a storyline, script at theatrics to make it a big production musical. Halloween is the perfect time for it, because it gives everyone an excuse to dress up anyways.
Q: So will this be straight covers, or are the songs Halloween related?
For the majority of them I’m trying to nail the mannerisms. Some stuff we’re going to do a little differently, like I’m toying around with actually singing “The Times They Are A-Changin’” instead of just impersonating Dylan. But I want to do it all. It’s like the concept of Eddie Murphy playing four different characters in one movie, but I’ll be doing 40 to 50 throughout the night.
Q: What’s your favorite scary song?
Easily “Thriller.” In our ’80s set that’s the one I’m looking forward to doing the most. It’s such an epic song, and we’re going to try to translate the feel of that video to the stage.
