Light the Black Flame Candle with the Halloween HoPo Party

 *poster by Jodie Beechem

How could this show not be on our radar? Lose Yr Mind Fest has killed it with this witchy presention of bands, with the theme being that of one of everyone's favorite Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus. HoPo, or the Halloween Hocus Pocus Party will see the Liquor Store transform into its own Salem, Mass., with Cat Hoch, Fog Father and Wampire serving as our harmonious Sanderson Sisters.

As to which band correlates to Sarah, Winnie and Mary? That's up to you, but Fog Father will be releasing a single this night as well, making the whole thing even more fun. 

To boot, Hocus Pocus will be playing on a projection screen behind the bands as they play and there will be a late night dance party following the sets. If you wear a costume, you'll be entered to win some prizes! 

HoPo is 21+, $10 and a good mix of traditional Halloween celebrating (there will be candy, too!) and the way Portland celebrates - with music.





Turn Your Halloween into Homieween

Even though Halloween may be lacking in amount of days off from work and school, it's still hands down the best holiday to celebrate with your homies. There are quite a few events going on this weekend that would allow for such activities, but they may not cater to them as much as Homieween '16.

Dig A Pony's night of costumed craziness will be hosted by everyone's favorite funnyman drummer Papi Fimbres along with some commentary input from DJ T-Kray (Theo Craig), so we'll definitely be entertained in between the evening's stacked bill.

Indie rockers Months will share the stage with the funky punk of Bitch'n, the experimental alt-rock from Helvetia and a SUPER SECRET HEADLINER that's leaving us all sorts of curious and intrigued. The mystery headliner is set to go on at midnight, truly bringing in Halloween official properly.

Homieween 16' is TOMORROW and for $10 you'll strut tough through the 8pm doors and subsequent laughs, with music kicking off at 9pm. 





Mood Music: Ramodes - "Just Can't Get Enuff"

 When it comes to bands that have done the most for modern day music, Depeche Mode and the Ramones definitely top that list. While their outputs appealed to different audiences, fusing them together to create one solidly awesome entity is one of the most genius things this Deli Portlander has every seen. Thank goodness Ramodes is actually a thing now.

Pulling punks from both Scourge of Ians and Chartbusters, along with some contributing minds from bedroom pop act PS-AX, Ramodes is exactly what you need out of a mashup cover band. It sets the brooding lyrics of Depeche Mode to the lighthearted punk of the Ramones, which is a must see for the Halloween cover band season and honestly, something we hope will stick around all year long.

Ramodes will be playing two cover sets - one tonight at Blackwater and one tomorrow at the Know





Weekend Warrior, October 28 - 30

Technically, Halloween falls on Monday. However, the autumnal celebration of dastardly deeds and debauchery will be in full flux this Saturday as Underground Arts opens its doors for the 7th Annual TJ Kong Halloween Costume Ball Rock N Roll Murdershow. Along with a haunting stir of booze-saturated country blues perpetuated by Kong & The Atomic Bomb, the candy-coated, Andy Moholt-led daydream down the rabbit-hole, better known as Laser Background, will provide their twist on The Zombies’ catalogue. The attitude-infused rumbling reverberation of Straw Hats and the serenading psych-pop grip of Grubby Little Hands will be joined by the slinky, streamlined, funk-fueled fire of MINKA and the rippling surf-psych wave of Ceramic Animal to seal this evening. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $15, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "Follow You Around" - Purling Hiss

Mike Polizze of Purling Hiss takes a trek around the city, using the El as his main mode of transportation between Fishtown and West Philly in the band's latest video for the single, "Follow You Around," off the group's new album High Bias (Drag City). He also provides more hometown love, sporting a Dead Milkmen's t-shirt in Laurel Hill Cemetery, where the beloved punks recently did a special performance last month. It's a lighthearted look and sound for the normally heavy-rockin' power trio, who will have a chance to show off the nastier side of their instrumental skills that we have come to know and love this Sunday, October 30 at Johnny Brenda's, alongside Honey Radar and Hothead.
