Halloween (more by Paul Birman)
Halloween

What are some good Halloween shows happening this year? There's always the parade. And Todd P has his thing. Knitting Factory has all the metal you need. Hippies will be down the shore gambling. The Dresden Dolls are at Irving Plaza. World/Inferno Friendship Society do two shows at Brooklyn Bowl. The Felice Brothers and Adam H. Stephens of Two Gallants play MHOW (not a very Halloween-like option). Robbers on High Street will be ELO at Mercury Lounge. A Weezer cover band opens for them.

Deidre of Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion hosts Deidre's Hoochie Coochie Halloween at Zebulon. Michael T hosts a Rocky Horror Picture Show anniversary party at Le Poisson Rouge. The always-costumed Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black play Santos. What else?

There's always Saturday/Mischief night to celebrate. Since Halloween is on a Sunday this year, Halloween will probably last all weekend long (plus, Halloween technically begins at midnight). Guns n Roses cover band Mr. Brownstone are at Brooklyn Bowl this Saturday evening before Das Pop play the Halloween party there later that night. Allo Darlin play the Mondo Halloween Party at The Rock Shop in Brooklyn on 10/30. The previously mentioned Pelly Twins Pre-Halloween Partay is happening that night too:

Saturday October 30th @ 171 LOMBARDY
:: PELLY TWINS PRE-HALLOWEEN PARTAY
:: http://pellytwins.blogspot.com
:: DOM
:::: SMITH WESTERNS
:::::: Yellow Fever
:::::::: Total Slacker
:::::::::: Sweet Bulbs
| 171 LOMBARDY |
502 Varick Ave @ Lombardy St | East Williamsburg, Brooklyn
L-Grand St, G-Nassau | 8pm | all ages | $tba
Antony and Cloud Cult both also play that night, as do Devo, The Drums & Neon Trees as part of the 2nd annual RXP Halloween concert at Hammerstein Ballroom. Too corporate? Within the Land of The Ash takes place in warehouses and on the streets of Brooklyn, burlesque, fire and music included. Mean Red meanwhile will be throwing down at Brooklyn Masonic Temple.

What else?

Get in the mood with some videos below...

Do you celebrate New Years Eve on Dec 30th or Christmas on Dec 22nd? Halloween is October 31st. Period. Not the day before. Learn to use a calendar.

"Halloween is October 31st. Period. Not the day before. Learn to use a calendar."

Maybe if you don't have a job or you're a kid. The rest of us party on the Saturday before Halloween so that we can spend the next puking into a bucket.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
