LA punk vets The Dickies are currently in NYC on their Halloween tour. Last night (10/28) they played their first of two sold-out Bowery Electric shows, playing 1979's The Incredible Shrinking Dickies in full. Tonight (10/29) they return to the same venue to play Dawn of the Dickies from that same year.

After a Philly show on Sunday (10/30), The Dickies will swing back through NYC for a Halloween night show at Bowery Electric owner Jesse Malin's other club Berlin. That show also has The Carvells, Gillian, Karla Rose and Madly, and Jesse is DJing. Tickets for that one are available. No word if this one is a full-album show.

In related news, the similarly-named 70s punk vets The Dictators will play Bowery Electric right before New Year's Eve on December 30 (not the first time they'll be celebrating the new year at that club). That show's with Palmyra Delran and Wyldlife. Tickets are on sale now. It's one of many upcoming Dictators dates, all of which are listed below.
