All NYC lo-fi bill at Shea Stadium on 11.2 with Spit, BEARS, and Jack

Brooklyn’s self-proclaimed “extra-virgin punk” band Spit (pictured) will play East Williamsburg’s very own Shea Stadium on Wednesday 11/2. October has proven kind to Spit; they’ve kept busy by playing shows at The Footlight and the Brooklyn Bazaar. Plus, they released their single “Paul Westerberg” (streaming here) as part of Heartbreaking Bravery’s A Step Forward: Vol. I compilation, from which all proceeds benefit the organization Rape Victim Advocates.

Spit will join Jack, the solo project of Brittany Costa, as well as doom folk group BEARS. This show kicks off BEARS’ East Coast Pumpkin Spice Tour, which runs from 11/2 to 11/19 and will take them from Brooklyn down to Mobile, Alabama. Head to Shea Stadium on 11/2 to see BEARS off, as well as hear great music from Spit and Jack. – Will Sisskind


Light the Black Flame Candle with the Halloween HoPo Party

 *poster by Jodie Beechem

How could this show not be on our radar? Lose Yr Mind Fest has killed it with this witchy presention of bands, with the theme being that of one of everyone's favorite Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus. HoPo, or the Halloween Hocus Pocus Party will see the Liquor Store transform into its own Salem, Mass., with Cat Hoch, Fog Father and Wampire serving as our harmonious Sanderson Sisters.

As to which band correlates to Sarah, Winnie and Mary? That's up to you, but Fog Father will be releasing a single this night as well, making the whole thing even more fun. 

To boot, Hocus Pocus will be playing on a projection screen behind the bands as they play and there will be a late night dance party following the sets. If you wear a costume, you'll be entered to win some prizes! 

HoPo is 21+, $10 and a good mix of traditional Halloween celebrating (there will be candy, too!) and the way Portland celebrates - with music.

Turn Your Halloween into Homieween

Even though Halloween may be lacking in amount of days off from work and school, it's still hands down the best holiday to celebrate with your homies. There are quite a few events going on this weekend that would allow for such activities, but they may not cater to them as much as Homieween '16.

Dig A Pony's night of costumed craziness will be hosted by everyone's favorite funnyman drummer Papi Fimbres along with some commentary input from DJ T-Kray (Theo Craig), so we'll definitely be entertained in between the evening's stacked bill.

Indie rockers Months will share the stage with the funky punk of Bitch'n, the experimental alt-rock from Helvetia and a SUPER SECRET HEADLINER that's leaving us all sorts of curious and intrigued. The mystery headliner is set to go on at midnight, truly bringing in Halloween official properly.

Homieween 16' is TOMORROW and for $10 you'll strut tough through the 8pm doors and subsequent laughs, with music kicking off at 9pm. 

Mood Music: Ramodes - "Just Can't Get Enuff"

 When it comes to bands that have done the most for modern day music, Depeche Mode and the Ramones definitely top that list. While their outputs appealed to different audiences, fusing them together to create one solidly awesome entity is one of the most genius things this Deli Portlander has every seen. Thank goodness Ramodes is actually a thing now.

Pulling punks from both Scourge of Ians and Chartbusters, along with some contributing minds from bedroom pop act PS-AX, Ramodes is exactly what you need out of a mashup cover band. It sets the brooding lyrics of Depeche Mode to the lighthearted punk of the Ramones, which is a must see for the Halloween cover band season and honestly, something we hope will stick around all year long.

Ramodes will be playing two cover sets - one tonight at Blackwater and one tomorrow at the Know
