Looks like Rooney ran out of sugar again.

Before Marilyn Manson was a household name and certified enemy of Christianity, his band was like any other local act around here, struggling to get noticed the old-fashioned way -- by sending out demos. Manson probably wouldn't have gotten very far had the Spooky Kids taken the American Idol route. Just picture the look on Simon Cowell's face as he'd scramble to find a terse, belittling assessment of the shock rockers. If you weren't around for Manson's early days or were there and just want a bit of nostalgia, drop on over to the Lounge (517 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) for the Spooky Kids Listening Party. The Wormhole DJs are spinning Lunch Boxes & Choklit Cows, a digitally remastered collection of the band's early demos. It's probably safe to assume the music's better than the William Hung CD. The night starts at 9 p.m. Admission is free. Call 561-655-9747.
