"Todd P's Halloween party took place [Sunday] night at the Ridgewood Masonic Temple. most people were probably still recovering from Halloween observed the night before, but a respectable amount of ghouls and tricksters made their way to the show, headlined by so-hot-right-now hip hop ensemble Das Racist.

Halloween is a time when you can see what people are really about. They're either in a pre-packaged costume or they're trying too hard or they are legitimately clever and good-spirited. And for Das Racist, it can be all of the above all the time. These guys walk the lines between irony and sincerity; between novelty and legitimacy; between gimmickry and credibility. And while some people show up at the party dressed as a can of Four Loko, others as zombies or superheroes, Das Racist can just take the floor as themselves and still be baffling and maybe a little frightening.

This set was, by all definitions, a shit show. You know when your friends have an inside joke and they are cracking up about it, and the joke is sort of independently funny, but not nearly as funny as your friends' uproar would suggest? Combine that feeling with the feeling of seeing your little brother get way too drunk at a party you invited him to. That was what the stage presence of Das Racist was like. And it was a fucking party." [Free Williamsburg]

Das Racist headlined the show of mostly locals which included a set by Vivian Girl Cassie Ramone and Justin (both in the Babies) as the White Stripes, but more notable was that The Intelligence, in from Seattle, were on also on the bill (the Intelligence also played Cake Shop one night earlier). Denver's Pictureplane, who was the special guest at the show that took place last night (11/2) at Brooklyn Bowl, was one of the artists who played too. Boshra AlSaadi aka SAADI played with Janka Nabay & the Bubu Gang.

Blissed Out went on right at 8:00 along with the doors opening which meant not many people around to hear their set, but the 9-band show filled up as the night went on. More pictures below...

FLORESCENT

I don't blame him using a flash. It was scary dark in there. So dark that I couldn't differentiate between the Chickpea and edamame hummus.

Wow looks empty.

Was there anyone in attendance who wasn't in one of the bands performing?

Isn't that review pretty much how every Das Racist show has been?

contrary to the pictures this was NOT a day show

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2010 2:34 PM

contrary to the commenters, you probably wouldn't have seen anything in these photos had it not been for a flash.

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2010 3:03 PM

theres like 4 people in there

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2010 3:15 PM

people successfully take photos without flash at dimly lit rock shows all the time. this guy just doesn't have the chops

Posted by Anonymous | November 3, 2010 3:16 PM

I'm sort of glad I didn't go and spent the night jerking off instead.

Oh wait.

Posted by Anonymous | November 4, 2010 2:56 PM

Haha, OK Todd P's publicity team... we get it.

IT WAS SO AWESOME AND NOTHING LIKE THE 200 PICTURES OF THE ACTUAL EVENT THAT ARE POSTED HERE.

Posted by Anonymous | November 4, 2010 4:19 PM

does todd p really have a publicity team?

Posted by Anonymous | November 4, 2010 4:22 PM

there were not 250 people there. It was more like 125 max but that includes all the bands and workers. Just look at this picture. There are only 70-some people in front of the stage. http://www.brooklynvegan.com/img/music/cassieramone/ridgewoodmasonictemple/16.jpg

3:16 - you're right and Andrew does it all the time, obviously conditions were bad enough to warrent a flash. no concert photographer prefers using flash, it's a last resort. if you can link us all to other photos from the same night taken without flash, i wouldn't mind taking a look!

Posted by Anonymous | November 4, 2010 4:54 PM

seems like theres more on an anti Todd P publicity team than the other way around

Posted by Anonymous | November 4, 2010 5:04 PM

The only publicity team that has ever been around commenting on BV is the Mark Ronson publicity team. They did quite a good job boosting that performance but did little to deny the mans tiny penis.

lol at the guys gettin all mad with the capital letters in here. why is a crowded show a good thing. it rules when theres less people yall are up front and its all intimate and cool. i guess its harder to lean against the wall with your cell phone alone (4:19) and be sad but for peeps with homies its way better.
