Water line in the basement at Saint Vitus on Tuesday
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.

This weekend in NYC offers you a plethora of tribute band options starting tonight (5/18) at Brooklyn Bowl where all girl tribute to Motley Crue "Girls Girls Girls" are sharing a bill with the female-fronted Dio tribute band Holy Diva and Bottoms Up who are a tribute to classic Van Halen - the only classic Van Halen you're going to get in the NYC-area for a while (or maybe just until Saturday) .
If you meet a member of Holy Diva in the crowd, find out what their thoughts are on Black Sabbath's decision to crop Bill Ward out of photos. DIO Rest in Peace.
Saturday (5/19) the fun continues in Prospect Park when GoogaMooga hosts a set by Unchained (another Van Halen tribute band). All girl Led Zeppelin tribute Lez Zeppelin play GoogaMooga on Sunday.
Saturday night is the return of Guns 'N Roses cover band Mr. Brownstone at Bowery Ballroom where they'll be joined by Rolling Stones tribute Mick's Jaguar, which should be a good warm for the Mick Jagger episode of SNL which you can watch on your DVR when you get home from the show. Tickets are still available and we're giving away a pair on Facebook. Adam Hertz & the Interns (ft. The Internettes) and Thunderpony are also on the bill of what should be a very drunken night (though hopefully not one met with serious bodily harm).
