It's the most wonderful time of the year, where ordinary people embrace their innate desire to display how hideous they are on the inside, outside. Usually by dressing like the rest of us do all year round.
For the first time (properly), we're teaming up with the handsome bitches at Roadkill Records to present to you, your very own Halloween. Throughout the Finsbury's annual Blogtober Festival, a different blog curates the evening's entertainment each day of the month. Obviously we lobbied for Halloween weekend. And clearly we came through for you.
We're over the moon to have Leeds' very own swamp-rockers, Weirds coming all the way down to the Big Smoke to headline this extra special party for us. Their doom-ridden tracks feature the kind of guitar-hero riffage that rips up pages from the classic metal riff canon, then sticks them back together like an angry scrapbooker.
Main support comes in the form of London's noise-shockers Claw Marks. Their vitriolic live show and menacing melodies will tear the place apart. And our openers, Roadkill's own fuzz groovers Muertos add the slower more brooding element to the evening. Serving up scuzz with a smile. Just writing about this line-up is making me happier than a murderer in clown makeup.
We're all beyond excited for this - we don't get to throw parties as often as we'd like, so come down and give us a hug/ complain about how we spelt your bandname wrong that time/ share a beer/ buy some records/ give us some CDs. We'll be spinning the best in garage-rock, surf, psych as well as Roadkill Records & Raw Meat classics, and Halloween floor-fillers ('Monster Mash' on repeat for five hours).
And because Roadkill are infinitely better organised than us, they've made you this handy playlist.
We'd also like to shout out to our lovely sponsors PBR, for joining us on this ramshackle venture. Thanks for joining the family. See you there.
