Big Freedia at Santos in May (more by Chris La Putt)
Big Freedia has been on a tour that was supposed to come to NYC for a Rocks Off cruise in late August, but that show was cancelled due to weather. She's since announced that she'll return to NYC for a show on Halloween (10/31) at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets for that show are available.
The Big Freedia show is one of many Halloween options in NYC, many of which we've already told you about (like Dita Von Teese who we also mentioned today). Some others that we haven't include the Halloween covers show at Death by Audio with Sleepies (as the Pixies), Mr. Dream (as ?), Acid Problem (as the Ramones), Heaven's Gate (as Joy Division), and more TBA; and the 'Monster Mash 7 Halloween Party' at Glasslands, which is being presented by New York Night Train (Jonathan Toubin's NYC dance party) and Alana Amram with DJ Naughty Panther. According to the event page, the "musical guests" are "Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Abba, 60s Girl Group, 90s Medley, The Cramps, New Order, and more." Tickets for that show are available. Any other good ones that we missed?
