Friday October 28th
Blind Bob’s has an excellent line-up, as always, with Mr. Gnome, Speaking Suns and Lioness. Very exciting for alternative and indie rock fans, so get there early. I have a feeling this show is going to be packed, and for good reason. The bands are awesome! Show starts at 9pm. 21+ $5 cover.
Another great show in the District this evening is the Nasty Bingo show at Trolley Stop. Not only are they a great folkadelic rock band, I’m loving the special guests they have lined up: Khrys Blank, Erich Reith & Patrick Himes. Yeah! That’s going to be a fun show for sure. Show 9:30pm. $5 cover. 21+
Lucha rock’n’roll and punk rock will be on tap at Flannagan’s this evening, with Team Void and The Terrifying Experience. Sounds pretty appropriate for Halloween! Costume contest will be held between sets, so get creative! Music gets going at 9:30pm. NOTE: You can also catch these acts Saturday night during Hauntfest on the main stage at 10:30pm!
Ready to get funky this Halloween? Get down with the best of them at One Eyed Jack’s, across from Wright State. Jonny Dreads & The Mystiks and The Almighty Get Down are both performing, which is sweet! Just $3 at the door gets you in! There will be drink specials, door prizes and a costume contest! Show starts at 9pm.
Saturday October 29th
For live music fans who love great rock, I’d suggest checking out the Nightmare on Brown Street event with Vibe & Direct and Subterranean at Jimmie’s Ladder 11. V&D are coming down from Cleveland to shake things up with their ever-evolving musical fusion. Subterranean is one of the most innovative and exciting original bands to come out of Dayton. Can’t wait for this show! 10pm $5 cover.
Monday October 31st
For those celebrating the Halloween on it’s proper day, head over to Jimmie’s Ladder 11 for McLovins (from Hartford, CT) and Mister F (Albany NY). This promises to be quite the boogie-tastic time with some truly epic bands! 18+ $10 cover. $7 if in costume. Doors at 8pm. Show 10pm – 1am.
As always, thank you for supporting live music!
