Costumes and makeup are synonymous with any performance by the Ssion. Mustachioed ringleader Cody Critcheloe likes to prance around in funny suspenders and paint his nose brown. Sometime-collaborator Shannon Michalski favors women's power suits. And the artsy disco-punk collective's revolving cast of pretty-boy dancers often wears close to nothing at all. Now that it's damn near Halloween, Critcheloe and crew are sure to outdo themselves. In an e-mail sent a couple of weeks ago, he promised a "BIG TRIPPY-DIPPY-HALOWEEN-Y SHOW" with DJ Iggy Baby tonight at the Record Bar (1020 Westport Road, 816-753-5207). We can only imagine the homoerotic possibilities. Admission to the 18-and-older event costs $7 ($5 if you wear a costume).
