Of course, you all want to go to The Satanic Future Rave at Club Hell on Saturday, but here are some other Halloween choices:
Rubulad frolic at The First Church of Satan: Disco of the Damned
Saturday, October 27
Your fiendish Rubulad producers invite the most craven characters of the underworld – and YOU! – to frolic at The First Church of Satan.
As always, there will be live – or should we say undead? – musical performances by 60’s French pop ensemble Les Sans Culottes, “vocal cartoonist” and “sound acrobat” Zeroboy, gypsy punk darlings Amour Obscur and a selection of Secret Scary Guests from New Orleans. The dance floor will be re-animated by your demonic DJs $mall ¢hange, Shakey and Voodoo Reagonomics.
Further heart-stopping shenanigans include G Scopitronic’s Non-Stop Monster Film Fest and Norm Francoeur’s Dark Circus of Woe, Horrible Art and Hellishly Hot F***ing Tamales, New York City’s most frightening cast of costumed patrons and additional awful surprises too numerous to enumerate. Need we tell you that you should dress damned to hell for having evil fun, you miserable sinners?! Seriously. Bring it. Because this, of all weekends, requires more than just a shocking pair of slacks.
The festivities take place at the First Church of Satan
626 Bushwick Ave.
Take the J, M, Z to the Myrtle Ave. stop and walk one block north to Bushwick Ave. on Jefferson St.
Doors at 9.
Shows begin at 9:30.

Unicorn Meat NYC presents Illuminate – Halloween Festival of Light & Music
Saturday, October 27
In a secluded part of Brooklyn, detached from the rest of the world, there lies a hidden street you have never been down. You’ve never even noticed it. If you dare to venture down, you will find the cultural oasis of your dreams. As you walk through the dark, you wonder if you’re headed the right way. You stop to listen. You don’t hear anything. It’s eerily quiet. You walk a little further. You still can’t hear it but for some reason you can feel it. You’re participating in a sacred ritual that many before you have experienced, yet none in a place quite like this .
At the end of the road is a gate protecting an expansive land of sound and color from everyday grime and grit. Inside lies a door leading to a concrete forest of glowing marvels. For a special moment in time, separate yourself from the rest of the world, and walk directly into the light.
Music by: RJD2, FreQ Nasty, Random Rab and many more. 21 and over
Newton Creek Spooky Boat Tour
Saturday, October 27, 2012
Looking for something really creepy to do this Halloween? NCA will bring an intrepid group out for a twilight tour aboard a (possibly) haunted NYC Water Taxi up into the mysterious and meandering industrial waterway, Newtown Creek. From the grizzly tales of bone boilers and fat rendering in days of yore, to the modern tales of black mayonnaise and the supernatural Superfund program, participants will see the Creek as it very spookiest.
Costumes are highly encouraged, and there might be candy involved.

BARDO THODOL, literally translated as The Liberation Through Hearing in the Intermediate State, and more commonly known as The Tibetan Book of the Dead, is a text that describes and guides one through the experiences that the consciousness has after death, during the interval between death and the next rebirth, including information on the signs of death and rituals to undertake when death is closing in, or has taken place.
This show is a visual, sonic, and performative collaboration between the artists with the intention of holding space for, confronting and dancing with death. There will be a giant altar inside a haunted castle, consciousness-altering drones, sparklers, heavy riffs, rock and roll, a ritual sacrifice, psychic flight AND MUCH MORE!!!
