Water line in the basement at Saint Vitus on Tuesday
Hurricane Sandy

Saint Vitus may have sustained some minor water damage to the basement, but the Greenpoint metal bar is open for business tonight (10/31) for a special Halloween event featuring Bottoms Up (a David Lee Roth era Van Halen tribute band). Entrance is free (or save your spot with a $1 ticket, on sale now), and the party starts at 9PM with complimentary booze (Red Bull and vodka) from 9 - 10 PM and continues until the time of "you-probably-should-be-in-bed".

The venue announced that Blackgates, which features Dan Nelson (ex-Anthrax) and Paul Bostaph (ex-Slayer), have cancelled their appearance on 11/3, but still no word on whether the rest of the bill will go on as planned or be scrapped entirely.

Meanwhile, The Acheron is proceeding with business as usual as well. The venue sustained no damage due to Sandy, and will host a show tonight featuring Author & Punisher with Panther Modern. DJ Derek Rush is also on board and $10 gets you into this 21+ show.

More pictures from Saint Vitus and Greenpoint on 10/20 is below...

Clearly Lulzy has lost his internet capabilities - when he finally gets back on and reads this article he's going to lose his mind. Sandy was good for something.

Did I speak too soon? Or is 2:41 a fake Lulzy?

Fake. He didn't mention "Bottoms Up" - complete softball all teed up for him.

Hey 2:41, did Dad send you the rent money yet? Tomorrow's the first.

I know, Saint Vitus are such dicks. The fucking nerve they have to re-open in record time so bands can keep their gigs and people can have a place to go see a free live show.

Usually pop culture theme parks take longer to open after storms.

That's funny. Fuck Greenpoint, on a BROOKLYN
Music site.Tell that to the
residents, whose basements flooded, whose
belongings are ruined, and in a few cases,
whose pets drowned.
