Broke On Holiday: Nobot Heart, Masquerade Macabre, Rubulad & More!…The Poor Man’s Halloween

There is a multiplier in the city when it comes to prices of events around major holidays. Labor Day, New Years, Memorial Day and of course, Halloween, everyone’s favorite reason to dress up like Sexy Grumpy Cat, is no exception to this rule. So instead of talking about some party that accepts payment in gold bullion or encrypted key phrases, there are people hard at work putting together a few different low cost events in and around the H-day. I’ll be dropping links into pictures and quick descriptions, but these will come Fast and Furious (Woo Sexy Ford Mustang costume!), so look around and make sure you get value for your party dollar. Sadly, while the one above is a likely attend for me, it’s full. I know, I’m a tease. However, below, feast my children of the night.

Gemini & Scorpio have been killing it for long enough to become a household name here in Gotham. Well, maybe if you live in a really fun house, but still, between their banya parties, their electro-swing steampunk fanciness and their general all around amazing taste, they do good things. This Saturday they’re doing their annual ridiculous Masquerade Ball/Macabre. When the Village Voice gives them props for throwing an absinthe-laced, half circus & half Victorian ball, you now they’re doing something right. $20 is an amazing value for this event and it’s also the most expensive event on the list. If you have it, Do eet.

My boy Nutritious is taking over Pianos on Halloween with a friend that goes by the name of Commodore. It’ll be a proper night of dance music at a bar in the sweet spot in town. If you need any help being convinced of my boy Nutritious’ ability to hold it down, see here and here. đŸ˜€

The day after Halloween, my ridiculously talented bass jedi friends Shakey, Tektite & Barney The Iller have brought in bobby c sound tv for some good old fashion fun involving speakers, mashup fun and a delightful amount of bang for your $10/15 buck.

Todd Fatjo & Justin Schumacher have been doing good work for a while now, and I’m sorry I’d not mentioned them before. A free party from 6 PM to 11 PM, and a great way to start off the night.

The fabled Rubulad has resurfaced once more to grace us with a Ghost Ship, haunting performances, live music and some crazy cabaret. If you’re in their hood, Rubulad is the stuff of legend so do what you need to.

BREAKING: Space Formerly Occupied By Limelight Is BACK! First Event October 30th!


Update: The page is up! Get tickets & RSVP! https://www.facebook.com/events/1427094404173440/

And without warning, a French restaurant rose from the grave (yea, it’s actually in the graveyard outside the church I think) of the Limelight, rose just in time for Halloween. Is Michael Alig out of jail yet? He and we all just may be able to get a table at the restaurant in the space now. But more importantly, on October 30th, YentalBeats (previously raved about here) and a bunch of other church-crashers are apparently dropping a 9PM “till late” event. It’s close enough to Halloween, and I guarantee the place will be thick even on a Wednesday. Here’s the new place: http://chateaunyc.com/ Gentlemen, start your engines. And make sure those engines sound like mid-to-late 90’s techno, trance & acid house for an added bonus. Will update this page once the event is up. We’re not sure how much of the space is still going to be used, and if we’ll even be able to get inside, but hey, what else is the internet for besides bringing you ridiculous news like this đŸ˜€ And Now that we’ve got the finalized lineup, make sure to check out the mixes from Yentalbeats, FDVM, Lee Kalt, Gato & Bass Control. Hard hitting. Get out there and start celebrating Devil’s Night.
