Thunderheist @ 205, NYC (BV & DB's Dance) - Oct 20, 2007
Dress up and get down tonight (Oct 31, 2007) at Flavorpill's annual Anniversary/Halloween party. Not only is it the scariest of parties, the line-up is stacked tonight with Peanut Butter Wolf, Swayzak, Japanther, and Thunderheist - maybe you caught their crazy set at our CMJ party at 205 (pics above). Swayzak have been doing live electronic (and minimal) since before laptops (and minimal) exisited. The Flavorpill party is in a secret location (and benefitting charity: water) so make sure you've texted the secret number and bring a little extra cash for charity: water. (RSVP - code= helix)
Ghostly International and DFA are teaming up tonight for a spooky bash at Studio B in Brooklyn (tickets here). It's the last stop for Matthew Dear's Big Hands live show along with Invisible Conga People and DJ support from DFA's T and T (Tims Goldsworthy and Sweeney), The Juan Macelan, Morgan Geist, and Ghostly's Derek Plaslaiko and Jeffrey Sfire. No word on whether Sfire's Ghostly's spooky tee shirts are condsidered a costume.

It's not even Halloween yet, but the photos of people wearing Amy Winehouse costumes keep pouring in. Send in your pics of Amy or other music-related costumes. And if you're just joining us, check out the first sixty pictures before proceeding on to this new batch of thirty.....

All Good Naysayers provides all the info you need to create your very own Sufjan Stevens-themed Halloween costume to go with your Sufjan Stevens pumpkin. And since the city was filled with people dressed up for Halloween this weekend (4-5 days before Halloween), it probably wouldn't be against the rules for you to wear your costume again 1-3 days after Halloween.

Remember how the Dan Deacon NY Magazine scavenger hunt thing was cancelled? Well, now they're doing it again, but different for Halloween with Chromeo & Kudu, and at Judson Church on October 30th. Tickets are on sale, and there's more details below....
BUT FIRST, it's also worth nothing that in addition to the Dan Deacon & Deerhunter show that is happening on October 17th at Bowery Ballroom, Dan Deacon is playing an Impose party at Silent Barn on October 16th, and Deerhunter is playing at a TBA Brooklyn venue on October 22nd (with No Age who is also playing that Bowery show). All tour dates below....
I wasn't even going to post the upcoming Misfits tour dates, because the only thing that bothers me more than Jerry Only keeping the Misfits alive without Glenn Danzig on vocals, is his new Misfits taking it even a step further by calling this their "30th Anniversary Tour". Scam.
Then I found out that Danzig is also touring. Not only that, but former Misfit Doyle will once again join him - maybe just as opener, though I'd be surprised if he didn't get on stage with Glenn to play at least a few Misfits songs. So since I'm posting Danzig's dates anyway, why not combine the post and try to make them one big happy family again. So check this out:
Happy Halloween. Danzig tickets are now on presale, and will soon be on regular sale. Type O Negative is still on sale, and "Misfits" are on sale too. Danzig's and Type O's dates overlap, so unfortunately I guess that means that Johnny and Kenny from Type O won't be playing in Danzig's band (like they both have been lately).
Danzig recently put out a great collection of lost tracks. The first and only video from that, and all tour dates, below....
after Daft Punk in Seattle - July 29, 2007 (CRED)
Though I still can't find much about this one, word is that The Rapture are playing a Halloween show at Roseland Ballroom in NYC with the B-52's. The reason there hasn't been any official information posted about this show yet? Probably because both bands have other NYC shows coming up in August - coincidentally both in Coney Island, and both on August 9th. The B-52's show is a free one, and The Rapture one is opening for Daft Punk at Keyspan Stadium.
And speaking of Daft Punk & The Rapture, check David Bruno's latest dance post for the flyer to the NYC afterparty, and check his older dance post for more info on the afterparties happening after each show on the tour (that is going on as we speak).
Also on Halloween in NYC in a big ballroom - Ryan Adams.
More tour dates below....
Ryan Adams seems to usually play very crowd-friendly venues, so it was definitely a surprise to see that his next NYC show is at the less-popular Hammerstein Ballroom on Halloween. Then again - everyone better dress up, and maybe it'll be a regular old
monster mash dance party....
There's some presales (password=ROSE ?) for the October 31st show starting Thursday, and then the regular sale on Friday - all at Ticketmaster. All tour dates below....

I was just writing to let you know that this week is pretty much the most exciting week that has ever fucking happened ever. Shit. Fuck. Piss. Damn. Anyway, for starters, as many of you who read the popular Brooklyn Vegan website probably already totally know about, this week is the week during which the exciting College Music Journal Music Marathon (or CMJ as it is known to “some”) is happening. Talk about good times- this is an example of that. Whether you like music or simply like to stand in line with a bunch of people who do (Ha! That is a playful reference to the lines that are common during this exciting event)- trust me on this one- you could do a lot worse than to attend this popular annual musical festival happening right here in town.
Adding to the excitement is the fact that this year “CMJ” is happening the very same week as Halloween, the popular celebration of candy, costumes, and scary stuff in general. Why not get into the spirit of things by grabbing two of your friends and attending a CMJ rock show dressed as the Three Blind Mice, Charlie’s Angels, or something else that will keep people guessing? I am just thinking out loud here. Have fun with it.
Also, I realize that some of you who are attending “CMJ” are from out of town. So- on behalf of me and all the other people who live here in New York City- welcome to our fair city. There is so much to see and do. Also, New York is far less knifey and rapey than it has ever been, so don’t hesitate to really sink your teeth into things and take advantage of the “anything goes” approach to life that we, as New Yorkers, get to enjoy every single day without even thinking about it. “A punk rocker, a Rastafarian, and a Hasidic Jewish guy all hanging out together eating Chinese food made by a Mexican person? It is now that I have seen everything,” you might say to yourself at some point during your visit. And to that I say “Ha! Welcome to New York City! Mexicans are everywhere in this town!”
Another thing I wanted to mention is that Brooklyn Vegan, the website on which you are reading this right now, is hosting three shows during “CMJ” and you should totally come to all of them. They are happening on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of this week (You can probably click on something somewhere in the sentences I am typing here to find out the exact info). I am hosting the Wednesday and Friday shows and the lovely and talented Sara Schaefer is hosting the Saturday show. She is really nice and pretty but also married, so just, like, know that going in, okay?
Okay, so that about covers it as far as the topics I wanted to cover here in this letter. See you around town soon or something I hope. That would be so great.
