Brooklyn is always packed with things to do on Halloween, but this year it seems like there’s even more going on than usual. We’ve already told you about all the scary films you can see in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick. We’re excited to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show at McCarren Park Pool on Saturday! Here are […]

All Photos by Malak Kdiry What started as a humble celebration of underground music has become one of the borough’s most successful electronic events. The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, better known as BEMF, reigns supreme when it comes to bringing rare, international talent to the hood. This year was no different, with hot names like […]
No shortage of killer stuff to go around this week—especially from a couple of noted locals—so I’ll keep the stage banter brief this week. Can I get a little more Trenchgrinder in the monitor, please?
We told you already about Elsewhere, the new club from the lovely people behind the oh-so-missed Glasslands. They’re having an opening party Tuesday, October 31. Yep, that’s Halloween night.

Crusasis could be huge. I know that sounds like chapter one in the Music Writer Cliche handbook. I know that it’s not the 70s anymore and not every three-piece rock band with good songs gets their own RCA greatest hits collection. I know. I know. But just listen…
After an illness-related layoff last week, we are back with metal (and phlegm) aplenty, which seems like a fitting introduction to the bubbling grotesquery ahead. Happy Friday the 13th, everyone.

I think we can all agree that 2017 has been pretty fucking scary. But at least now we can finally celebrate spooky in a fun way (as opposed to an impending nuclear war way). On Saturday, October 28th, BangOn!NYC’s annual Warehouse of Horrors returns from the dead to haunt a secret East Williamsburg location, and we’re giving away […]
