mommy, can i go out and kill tonight?
You've probably already realized it, but this weekend is a bit special, so let's highlight some Halloween happenings...
I'll start with one that's not part of the usual weekly events, but Black Mountain, Bison,and Sorcerers at the Rickshaw on Halloween will be epic.
Friday sees Prince Paul play Vancouver for the third Halloween weekend in a row. Why? I have no idea. But he keeps coming back, so you can probably expect a decent sized crowd at the Astoria for Damaged Goods.
If you recall Halloween at the ER a couple of years back, you'll remember that the Misfits cover night that they threw was all kinds of awesome. Far Away will try to recapture some of that magic (sure, the Media Club doesn't have that same aura, but, on the bright side, it has more than one working toilet) when they host White Cuts (White Lung & Random Cuts) and Nu-Lines (Nu Sensae & B-lines) doing their favourite Misfits tunes... and maybe some Danzig too. I have no basis for saying that last part, but if they weren't already planning to, maybe someone from one of the bands will read this and work up a cover of "Mother."
Saturday sees Glory Days and Night Shift teaming up to bring a pair of parties: Jeremy Jay, Fan Death, and Circlesquare at the Biltmore and No Gold and Bogus Tokus as the Astoria. Tix are $20 & $15 respectively, but you can get into one at 1/2 price if you have a ticket stub/stamp from the other.
No More Strangers is at the Lion's Den for Halloween only, where they welcome Don Cash, Cosmetics, and Humans.
Check back later tonight for an awesome, non-Halloween related, contest.
Oh, and I'll be filling in on This Side of Monday on CiTR tonight at 6pm. Tune in to hear lots of dead air and accidental profanity.
