One of the best occasions of the year to party wildly and to slightly modify your identity. Be someone you don’t normally dare to be…
Here is our selection of the best parties around town!
We’re sure you’d be glad to hear that every day is a Halloween party. It sure is in Bushwick and, most importantly, at Secret Project Robot. Starting this Thursday, October 25, 2012, Secret Project Robot undertakes to entertain the ghoul out of you. Concerts, DJs, art – make sure to attend at least one of the parties!
One of our favorite music venues, Big Snow Buffalo Lodge is having a (mandatory!) costume party. The theme will be focused on the installation of a giant life-size monster that will be hanging all around the place. Oh, if you’re interested in crafting a monster, RSVP here! The bands of the night will include The Misfits (Donner Party Picnic), The Zombies (Celestial Shore & Delicate Steve) and The Big Snow Family Good Times Party Band. (Lost Boy?, Baked, Leapling).
Cheap Storage, an awesome DIY venue off Jefferson L stop, will feature an awesome Halloween party with lotsa locally beloved bands (Inspectah Deck (Wu-Tang), Moon Hooch, Osekre & The Lucky Bastards, Wc Kids x RPEG, Harmonica Lewinskies, No Shoes, The Great American Novel, The N’ere Dowells). Come in costume! There will be jello shots and a two-hour open bar!
Gryc is a new music venue off the Halsey L stop. On Saturday, they’ll have a bunch of bands playing so bring a costume!!
Warehouse party gurus Unicorn Meat are organizing a huge party in a secret location somewhere off the Grand L stop. The tix are rather pricey, but we have to admit that they are promising some serious Halloween magic: “…concrete forest of glowing marvels. For a special moment in time, separate yourself from the rest of the world, and walk directly into the light.” Seriously? We’re in!
If big raves are not for you and you’re looking for something low-key, head to Cain’s Tavern, a little neighborhood gem on Wilson. They will have a DJ, scary shots and a costume contest.
The church at 626 Bushwick Ave, temporarily in the hands of mysterious Bobby Redd, will turn into a big Rubulad rave. DJs, demonic drinks, and costumes even crazier than usual Rubulad! Seriously, how many times in your life will you get to spend your Halloween at a church partying like an animal?
XPO 929, a music venue underneath the JMZ tracks is not only promising a 3D Halloween experience, but is also getting ready for famous Gary Wilson. Other musicians to rock the Halloween night at XPO are Jan Terri, Tim Garrigan, Aquadora and Childproof.
Another giant warehouse party to take place in a yet unknown warehouse off Morgan L! Join party producers BangOn to experience 20,000 square feet of multi-level legal warehouse space, a massive haunted house, 2 main stages with tons of DJs rotating, tented/heated outdoor areas, aerial & burlesque performers, projection mapped stages, oh, and a bouncy castle!!
This is a special tip outside of our jurisdiction, all the way in Greenpoint, but it sounds so awesome that we are including it! Our friends Greenpointers are throwing a massive make out party. They are promising a make-out for everyone, even for raccoons from trash cans. It’s a partnering party, so either bring one or use a prop!
