Hello New York City!
Halloween is on Saturday this year which is every party producer’s wet dream that only happens once every 6 years. We have 3 pre-Halloween events, 5 proper Halloween parties plus Glamdammit, Bikini Carwash show celebrating the NY rock legend Frank Wood’s birthday, and SHAW ME THE TICKETS giveaway for Coney Island Laser Show!
But first.. tonight is the second Kitten n’ Lou Overexposed show at Joe’s Pub. Don’t drop the ball and miss out on a show that Time Out New York calls “BRILLIANTLY DERANGED!” Only a handful of tickets left for tonight, get it HERE!
Sally Can’t Dance is back with The Cramps Tribute Pre-Hallowen Bash at Bowery Electric. There is two open bars at 11:30PM and 2:30AM, costume contest, Go-Go dancers along with impressive cast of performers including Jon Spencer (Blue’s Explosion), Bob Bert (Sonic Youth / Pussy Galore), Mick Collins (Dirtbombs / Gories), Christina Martinez (Boss Hog), Miss Guy (Toilet Boys), and many more! Alix Brown and Jonathan Toubin of NY Night Train are DJing between sets and your hosts Michael T, Johnny T, Jesse Malin, Cynthia Ross, The Veevees, and Chris Burden will keep you entertained and feeling sexy the entire night. Did I mention this is the tribute to The Cramps? Yup, don’t bother making other plans on Thursday. $5 with facebook RSVP, $10 door. We still have few spots left on our SHAW comp guest list for Sally Can’t Dance, RSVP now!
The Sons & Heirs are indisputably one of the best Morrissey & The Smiths tribute band ever.
“Hello you sweet and tender hooligans! We are quite humbled to announce that we’ll be headlining a Friday night at the fabulous Highline Ballroom in Manhattan, for what will surely be a new fall tradition, our first ever Halloween/Johnny Marr Birthday Bash. You are always a fantastic looking crowd, so we can’t wait to help you celebrate Halloween.” ~ The Sons & Heirs.

One of our favorite friends and event producers, Shien Lee of Dances of Vice, is presenting TWO Halloween parties: Phantasmagorey: Danse Macabre Masquerade at The Cutting Room on Friday and The Savage Kingdom Halloween Ball on Saturday. Check out the promo video below!
Now, here are our other 4 HALLOWEEN events!
There are TWO Halloween parties happening at 2A / Berlin Bar. The first is the Rocky Horror live show and party, Celebrate 40 Years of Rocky Horror! This is your chance to enjoy THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW in concert with full band & cast! We have a pair of special $10 tickets but you need to act fast, RSVP now. Advance tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets!
Immediately after the Rocky Horror show, in the basement of 2A, is the long awaited return of one of the most infamous parties in NYC (other than Motherf*cker) – Rated-X The Panty Party Rocky Horror & Saturday Night Fever Edition! Rated X party and the Hot Body Contest was definitely one of my all time favorite parties in NYC and I am thrilled it’s here again. Let’s bring the old New York back! Unfortunately our comp guest list is full, but we still have few spots left for the special $10 reduced list which I’m sure will be gone before EOD so RSVP NOW! The Hot Body Contest is at 2:30am with a grand prize of $100, hosted by the OG Peppermint. This will be the party everyone’s talking about the day after Halloween. Get your 2 for $15 advance tickets HERE!

On a side note, some nerd on FB reported the above photo from the Hot Body Contest as offensive. Really? Well FB doesn’t think so, so please unfriend yourself from my FB page now since you have an issue (unless it’s my mom, then I understand; sorry mom). Lame!
We also have the the 3rd Annual THE SALON Halloween Stomp: a vintage inspired masquerade and costume party featuring over 35 performers including four hot jazz, swing, and blues bands on two stages; plus classic burlesque and vintage gogo dancers, swing DJs, video projections, and more! And lastly, DEADGRASS Playing the Music of Jerry Garcia at Pinks on Halloween which will happen right after the Dead & Company concert at MSG.
On Sunday after Halloween, Dwagi (Taiwan) the only rapper collaborated with NAS and the Dalai Lama is having his EP Release Party at Black Bear Bar. This show is FREE! Check out Dwagi & NAS collaboration video below.
