The way Jewel works onstage with Glass Candy gigs is undeniably frisky, and he's quick to call the act his favorite in the performance setting. "The nature of the music is more bouncy and fun to do live," he says. "[Ida No and I] have been doing shows together since 1999, so we know each other really well and improvise quite a bit onstage."

Jewel has fond memories of playing Vagabond a few years back but not the foggiest idea what kind of scantily clad goblin and ghoul revelry he has signed up for at the 19th installment of Moonfest, a mass of costumed partiers clogging up Clematis Street. "So, there'll be alcohol?" he asks.

I want Candy: Ida No and Johnny Jewel.

Look for Glass Candy's performance shortly after Moonfest's notorious costume contest at midnight Saturday. As an additional lure, Glass Candy will unveil its newest single, "Halloween." Jewel describes the song as a "snap-track," a rap tune set to "808 drums that are really slow and superheavy." Sounds like something the carousing Moonfest crowd will eat up entirely.
