We know you’re all exhausted from CMJ, but we had to tell you about the awesome Halloween shows you should hit up this week!
First off is our totally epic and essential Halloween cover show this Thursday at Death By Audio. Bands being covered include Bruce Springsteen, Le Tigre & Salt n Pepa. COME ON THIS WILL BE AMAZING!
Friday night (10/28) there are THREE great shows to attend:
We’re putting on an awesome Queer Punk Halloween Show at the Manifesta Loft with two amazing girl bands from Vancouver! Don’t miss out on this!
If you can’t make it to that show, Perm Waver WOJICK is also playing what is sure to be an unforgettable (or maybe unrememberable) evening at an apartment show with 100 free cans of ORIGINAL FOUR LOKO. BE EXCITED/SCARED.
Or if you’d prefer to stay within the bounds of Manhattan, Perm Waver band Crazy Pills are playing an all girl show at Otto’s Shrunken Head in the East Village!
