Throwback Thursday | moe.'s Simpsons-Themed Halloween

This morning FXX started a 12-day The Simpsons marathon in which the cable network will present all 552 episodes of the show in chronological order. The marathon, which is the longest single-series marathon in TV history, had us thinking back to moe.'s The Simpsons-themed Halloween show at RPI's Houston Field House in Troy, NY on October 31, 2002.

moe. mixed originals and songs from the TV show over the span of two lengthy sets and an encore. The band members were all dressed as Simpsons characters and the stage was set up like Moe's Tavern from the TV show. Opening act Particle even got in on the act by playing pool at the on-stage pool table during the first set before engaging in a full band segue with moe. "See My Vest," "Bagged Me A Homer" and the "Itchy and Scratchy Theme" were among The Simpsons songs moe. performed that night.
