Deer Tick

According to eMusic, the above picture is John McCauley of Deer Tick as a California Raisin for Halloween. They also collected pictures from Bon Iver, Black Mountain, Dawes, The Black Lips, and many others.

This year Deer Tick is going to be The Sex Pistols for Halloween, a fine choice of activities for that evening, though I may not be able to pass up partying like it's 1994 with Bad Brains & The Jesus Lizard instead. If I do, I'll definitely regret missing the Mt. Eerie show at Market Hotel. And hopefully I'll make it to at least some of the parade.

What are you doing on Halloween? What are you wearing?

Are you 100% sure that the very best have not resolved their "travel issues" ?

I don't think 2:09 has accurate information unless he/she knows something withheld from the public... this is on The Very Best's myspace blog.

As a greenwich village resident, I can't decide what I hate more, the halloween parade or pride. Both are great to experience once, then just miserable fucking inconveniences for everyone who lives in a 10 block radius of them. Ucch, so annoying.

my friend steve is having a big party at his house but the problem is that he is abusive and berates people because he has a terrible self esteem problem, he can't seem to help it and i don't know why i put up with it.

one of these days he will be sorry.

he lives near my grandpa at 168 bedford ave 4th floor. he loves oysters. that fat asshole.

That California raisin costume is so cute! and I love the idea of a band going as another band for Halloween that's classic!
This year I'm going as Super Mario... last year I was a M&M (was nothing special) but the year before that I was the "Operation" game guy.
