Goth icon, avant-garde diva and autre legend, Diamanda Galás is like nobody else. Having released two new records back in March, Diamanda returned to NYC for two Halloween performances at Brooklyn's Murmrr Theatre on October 29 & 31 (both of which were originally supposed to be held at Co-Cathedral of Saint Joseph)...
Jonathan Toubin pulled out all the stops for his annual Halloween Hop which this year was at The Knockdown Center in Queens. Shannon & The Clams, playing their third Halloween show of the week, headlined and the night also saw main room performances by Ian Svenonius's Escape-Ism, Kid Congo, Guantanamo Baywatch, Paint Fumes, and The Nude Party.
PopGun's long-in-the-works new multi-room venue Elsewhere had its Grand Opening with a very festive Halloween Party headlined by Battles. While there was lots of great music all night, it felt like most people were there to party and get a first look at the new place...
After a somewhat disastrous fifth edition of Beach Goth that resulted in lawuits, The Growlers ditched the festival name and Santa Ana Observatory location, regrouped and started a new Halloween Weekend festival in Los Angeles...
Halloween shows in and around NYC include the grand opening of new Bushwick venue Elsewhere, GWAR, Diamanda Galas, Craig Finn & John K Samson, George Clinton, King Crimson, Springsteen on Broadway, Primus, Phil Lesh, and more.
Beach Fossils were in the Halloween spirit at NYC's Brooklyn Steel for their "sacrificial ritual spectacular" on Saturday night (10/28) which was also the final date of their tour. Dressed in sacrificial red robes and ghoulish face paint, the band played a colorful graveyard-themed stage full of cobwebs, tombstones, human carcasses and, not accidentally, fossils, among other creepy stuff.
Hundreds of costumed dogs and their owners, as well as curious onlookers, spilled out of the multi-use courts and lined the fences surrounding them. Prizes were awarded for the best costumes, but to me, all the dogs in attendance were winners.
