Saying there’s a lot going on this week is a huge understatement, so we figured we’d get ahead of things by sending out our top Halloween party recommendations early — AND by including events happening Thursday through Monday. Before we get into the details, take a quick gander at this week’s news:
- The old Verboten has a new name: Schimanski. The venue will host a “pre-opening party” on Halloween (official lineup still TBA). RSVP at schimanskinyc.com.
- After having to postpone the originally scheduled March date, Tiga is finally bringing his new live show (with a band that includes Jori Hulkkonen) to Music Hall of Williamsburg on Halloween, along with Riton and Rinsed’s Dan Wender and Blacky II. Check out a teaser here.
- Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival announced the second round of its lineup. This year’s BEMF will take place November 4-13 in various venues around the borough.
- Happy 2nd to our favorite NYC venue, Good Room! The club is celebrating with a 5-day Halloween weekend extravaganza that includes the likes of Cut Copy, (still secret) DFA all-stars, Detroit Swindle, Nicky Siano, S U R V I V E (whose members recently scored “Stranger Things”), and lots more.
Check out our top weekend recommendations for dancing below (as always, the most essential events are marked by **); you can also visit our calendar for the full list of what’s going on. Catch you ghouls on the other side…
