A live album recorded at Akron’s Rialto Theatre on the eve of local singer-songwriter Brian Lisik’s most recent birthday, Hotsy-Totsy! comes in the wake of eight previous studio releases that Lisik, a veteran area musician, has released. For the live album, Lisik and his current minimalist backing band, the Hard Legs — guitarist Robb Myers and drummer Martyn Flunoy (Bizarros) — took inspiration from the local alternative rock scene of the late '90s that included Lisik's previous band, the Giants of Science. They celebrate the album's release by performing at tonight's Halloween Freekout at the Auricle in Canton. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the Got It Got It Need It and
Easton Union open. Tickets cost $10 in advance.
