People who enjoy good rock and roll with their Halloween festivities should check out The Abbey Pub’s Halloweekend 2011 on October 28th and 29th. Costumes aren’t the main attraction for this two-night extravaganza; the fun is in seeing local musicians paying tribute to legendary bands. There are a lot of interesting choices scheduled for Friday and Saturday, so you might want to check out both nights.
The lineup for Friday features American Headlight Noise as Bruce Springsteen; John Aselin (with guest Phil Angotti) as The Rolling Stones; Bon Mots as Alice Cooper; The Webstirs as Chicago; Penthouse Sweets as Nick Lowe, and Metropolly as Hole.
Saturday brings Joel Paterson as ZZ Top; Phil Angotti as The Who; Androgynous Mustache as Huey Lewis, Unknown Pleasure as Joy Division; Grooved Surface as Bachman-Turner Overdrive; Tuffy UK as Patti Smith; and Zapruder Point as Billy Bragg.
The party kicks off at 8:30 each night, and there’s a $12 admission fee ($10 in advance).
