Halloween rules. Forillytho. We’ve been snacking on more candy than usual and partying hard and we’re only gonna keep it going this weekend [we listed some of the shows and partys going down after this — right down there] Other than candy and costumes and getting wild, one of our favorite things about Halloween is the jams. We don’t typically do things like this, but we figured it’d be OK to do just this once — we made a little Halloween sampler for the mamis and papis out looking to get their kicks this weekend. Some of the songs aren’t about Halloween, some don’t sound spooky, but they’re all jams indeed. Indead. You can snag it right here. And you can check the tracklist after the click, too. GETTIN’ SPOOKED!


One of the sicker shows going down this weekend is happening tonight at Little Hamilton with some of our favorite local rock and rollers. If you haven’t seen Modern Hell in a while, you should correct that by seeing them tonight. Feels like punks always way more on their game during Halloween, knowwhatimean?

Sometimes we hear about a Diarrhea Planet show and all we can think is, “What the fuck? They’re playing where? Wait… what??” Apparently the bebs were practicing at their usual spot when a neighbor asked them to play their Halloween party. That being said — they’ve probably invited a world of hurt [and fun] Go if you know…

We’re not gonna reveal too much info about this one but we will say that the bad boys are going all out. Elvira’s gonna host. Greenhornes and Black Belles. We’ll be on the ones and twos again slinging out some Halloween rock — but the only downside is that it’s 21+ [Sorry, kiddens. You gotta get your kicks somewhere though] You gotta wear a costume if you wanna come to this one — we’ve got ours ready.

In all seriousness, this party looks like it’s gonna be wild. We’ve seen a lot of the acts before, but chu know… that’s not what’s got us wet — fucking Ying Yang Twinz are gonna be there!! From the windoooow to the wall! Getting lost in a sea of teenyboppers wearing barely-there Halloween costumes is definitely not our thing — but we might have to get on that Ying Yang tip. Pretty penny though — YIKES
