Halloween Cat

We were just talking about holiday shows in NYC in celebration of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, but before we get there, there's a ton of stuff to do for Halloween as well.

Like they've done in the past, Cypress Hill will play a show around then at Best Buy Theater on October 30 with Method Man collaborator Redman. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Zappa Plays Zappa (aka the band led by Frank Zappa's son Dweezil performing his father's music) are playing a Halloween eve show at Gramercy Theatre (10/30) and then on Halloween they play Beacon Theatre (10/31). Tickets for those shows are on sale now.

As discussed, Crystal Stilts, who just opened for Deerhunter, are playing a Halloween show at Bowery Ballroom. Since we last spoke, it's been announced that the show will be opened by Excepter and Zachary Cale. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

The band that currently tours as The Misfits are celebrating in NYC the night before Halloween at BB King's (10/30) with The Attack (tickets), then after Halloween (aka the Day of the Dead), they play NJ's Starland Ballroom (11/1) (tickets).

Meanwhile, original Misfits vocalist Glenn Danzig and his former bandmate Doyle are going on a tour together that hits NYC on October 18 at Roseland Ballroom. Tickets for that show are still available.

Another punk option on Halloween is Cali vets The Dickies' previously discussed show at Knitting Factory (10/31). Tickets for that show are still available.

World/Inferno Friendship Society play their annual Hallowmas show at Warsaw on Halloween. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders, Mark Lindsay is playing on Halloween at Bowery Electric with The Doughboys, St. Philips Escalator, The Connection and DJ Tony Lo-Fi. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

For something dancier, Gatekeeper, Mirror Mirror, DJ Bruno (Light Asylum), and DJ Nick (CHERYL) will take over Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Halloween. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Another similar option is catching DFA's Juan Maclean DJing Cameo on Halloween with Justin Strauss and Evan Michael. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

The Cameo show starts at 10 and Juan Maclean is doing a 3 hour set, so you can probably get there after seeing his DFA labelmates Holy Ghost! play Terminal 5 with Midnight Magic. Tickets for that show are still available.

Before Glasslands hosts the Peelander-Z show on Halloween, they'll "dress up" as The Black Lodge for a Twin Peaks party on October 25, the Friday before. Tickets for that party are on sale now.

Jammy Halloween options include the Phil Lesh & Friends show at Capitol Theatre, which kicks off their 9-show NYC-area run, and Phish in Atlantic City, which kicks off their 3-night run in AC.

And what's Halloween without a few cover shows? On October 30 at 285 Kent, local indie bands will take on rock bands of the past with Butter the Children as Pixies, Dead Stars as Nirvana, Le Rug as At The Drive-In, Turnip King as The Velvet Underground, and Honduras as Green Day. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

The Stone hosts a much different kind with Eugene Chadbourne as Jimmy Carl Black, Evan Gallagher as Thelonious Monk, Thomas Heberer as Muggsy Spanier, Tatsuya Nakatani as Johnny Cash, Louie Pearlman as Cab Calloway, Barry Mitterhof as Jethro Burns, and special surprise guests. That goes down on Halloween at 8 PM and again at 10.

Cake Shop also has a cover show on Halloween too but the lineup is TBA. UPDATE: The lineup includes Vulture Shit as Dookie Shit, Big Ups as Breaking Brad, Flagland as Weezer, All Nines as Buckingham Buckingham Buckingham, Low Fat Getting High as Nirvana, Butter the Children as Pixies, and Palehound as Pavement.

Other Halloween options include the Masquerade Ball with a "world-renowned live DJ performance" at Highline Ballroom, the Bluegrass Halloween celebration at The Bell House on November 1 (tickets), and Dionne Werewolf (aka the werewolf ensemble that does Dionne Warwick covers) at Union Hall (10/31) (tickets).

Other previously discussed Halloween options include The Body at Saint Vitus and Yamantaka // Sonic Titan and Jenny Hval at Basilica Hudson.
