Creepshow Peepshow 

Did you hear the one about the naked ghost? Saw his reflection and was scared sheetless. (Rimshot). That was an awful joke, but it might be a whole lot funnier after a cocktail or three in a dark nightclub where the music bumps and sparkling showgirls grind on stage. This Saturday night at RockHouse Live (in rockin' Raleigh), the cast of Sock It to Me Burlesque's Creepshow Peepshow presents a Halloween spectacular honoring zombie film pioneer George Romero and the great tradition of horror comics.

This Peepshow's routines aren't all Romero-inspired. Sock It to Me co-founder, Lady Doo Moi and DJ Justin Hand are planning an homage to John Carpenter's Halloween franchise. They'll forego the fim's iconic soundtrack and mix bits of the Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" with Britney Spears singing "Oh Baby."

"I'm going to be dressed like Michael Myers," Doo Moi says. "And I'm going to have a little Britney Spears pop out and kill him." In addition to all the rhinestones and feathers that usually accompany a burlesque show, the Creepshow Peepshow tosses in a reasonable amount of stage blood. "And red glitter," Doo Moi adds.

Hosted by Doo Moi's burlesque partner Chloë du Bois and boy-lesque entertainer Papa Chubb, this strippy spookshow showcases the talents of performers like Requi Emma, Puss Powerbottom, Twen Peeks, and Coco Rose. Horror-themed music can also be expected from the opening band, Terry Prince & the Principles.

Creepshow Peepshow at RockHouse Live, Saturday, October 14th, 9 p.m.-11 p.m. 386-7222, $8-$20
