"Sinister" is a great word. It's more evil than evil. If something has a sinister vibe, it makes you feel like something bad could happen at any moment, and that delicious tension is part of the magic of Halloween. That's why "Sinister Kid" from The Black Keys' 2010 album Brothers makes my Halloween playlist every year. It's a fitting song for TODAY because we're just a few days away from the band's triumphant return to New York. See them and Modest Mouse Tuesday night at Barclays!
