What's Going On: 10/27, 10/28, 10/29 & 10/30, 2016

Philly's Primitive Finks play "Monster Surfing Time" at The Saint on Friday. GhoulDad will be there.

Happy Halloween

I used to love Halloween as a kid. Maybe my favorite holiday. I still love it, though I feel like it's become more and more about adults getting drunk than kids trick or treating over the years. Whatever, I guess. Lots of opportunities for both this weekend.

Things kick off tonight with a free acoustic night at the new Asbury Park Brewery featuring Renee Maskin, Dan Apy, Rachel Ana Dobken, Joe Galuppo, and Avery Mandeville. JoeP of Deal Casino and Brother Andrew go at each other at APYC. The Battery Electric open for David Cassidy at Red Bank's Count Basie Theatre.

On Friday night, it's "Monster Surfing Time" at The Saint with Black Flamingos and The Primitive Finks, DJs, costume contest, tiki drinks, and me doing something as GhoulDad. Should be interesting. Ribeye Brothers play APYC with The Long Defeats and Bamboo Kids. Von Mons and Creamer are in the basement at the Bond St. Bar complex. Nicole Atkins and WOLF! are at House of Independents. SICK SHIT play a show at Millhill Basement in Trenton with Crackfiller, Posers, and Josh Adair. There's some kind of thing with Hot Blood over at Red Bank Rehearsal doing KISS covers, I think.

On Saturday, The Asbury hosts the Black & Gold Halloween Ball with CeCe Peniston. Morgan Freemasons, Dirty, and Lunch Ladies are at APYC. Beatrix Potter and Cranston Dean are next door at Langosta. The Battery boys head over to Trenton for a show at Millhill Basement with Honah Lee, Cyclone Static, and Alpha Rabbit. Langhorne Slim & The Law play House of Indepenents with Susto and American Trappist. Streetlight Manifesto play Starland. Texas Is The Reason's Garrett Klahn plays Brighton Bar. The North American, dollys, Paper Streets, and Laketon play Cee Gee's in Jackson.

Saturday is also the second installment of Convention Hell. This year, bands will be covering INXS (Parlor Mob), No Doubt (Shady Street), New York Dolls  and Johnny Thunders (The Vansaders), Michael Jackson (Des & The Swagmatics), Elton John (Matt Wade), Black Sabbath (Deaf Rhino), and YES (Karmic Juggernaut). Also, skateboarding.

On Sunday, Eastbourne play Brighton Bar. There's another Halloween covers show at Scarlet Pub. Beartooth are at The Stone Pony.

Have a fun and safe Halloween. Don't act like an idiot.
