Terror Behind the Walls/Eastern State Penitentiary/Now-through Nov 5th. Because you’re finally recovered from last year’s hellish roaming, step back into the scurry shit because the Eastern State Pen is back at it again, bitch.
Scream Turns Twenty/Netflix Perhaps the scariest thing on this list is the fact that Wes Craven mid ’90s horror masterpiece Scream is just a touch away from its twentieth fucking birthday. First, pass the Botox (right Ms. Cox in Scream 2 and 3?), and then watch….because it’s a god damn classic.
The B-52’s Halloween Scream/The Fillmore/Sunday If only legendary Philly DJ Robert Drake was opening for the iconic B-52s would this event be the perfect addition to your already action-packed Halloween weekend. Oh, wait, he is, so “Roam” right over here and get those tickets, because on this night, we’re all in the deadbeat club.
Not Your Basic Brunch:Party of the Dead/Pennsylvania 6/Sunday Calling Ms. Houston, Ms. Winehouse, Mr. Bowie, Prince and Iggy Azalea’s music career (what, too soon?), you’re all invited to Pennsylvania 6 Philly this Sunday for a big ol’ Party of the Dead, which will be all wrapped up in that not so elusive “Not Your Basic”Brunch style and flavor.
Of course, also along for the ride will be boatloads of bubbles and all the Spin City DJz you can’t possibly handle throwing it the fuck down on the main floors. And for this oh, so spooky, wooky round of NYBB, the 3rd floor at Penn 6 will be transformed into the afterlife lounge, which will be complete with all sorts of deep house ditties and a buffet of chilled out vibes where you can rest those tootsies before shimmying back onto the dead dance floor. Get ready, kids, because Penn 6 is about to be all done up into your worst/best nightmare complete with…everything, so call your friends, tell them to get their friends and we can all be freaky friends together this Sunday. Don’t forget to dress up all dead and stuff to win some fab prizes and then come through, yo!
Jock o Lantern Night/The Bike Stop/Sunday That title pretty much this fuzzy, f@#kable event all sorts of up. Bears, cubs and ghouls….oh, yas, queen.
Lita Ford/SundaySellersville Theatre Because who wouldn’t want to be kissed oh, so deadly by the legendary Ms. Lita Ford on Halloween? No, no…that wasn’t a question.
Fright Night!/Bourbon & Branch/Oct 31st Leaving those front porch lights off this year? Then avoid it all and head to B&B where the smooth local sounds of The Billy Brown Band, RFA and Backroom Dreamers will be waiting for you…unlike those kids.
Halloween/Monday Trick or treat, bitch! Now, beware of candy with razor blades in it and get to work on filling those local and legendary entertainment pillow cases all the way up.
