Halloween falls on a Saturday this year. That means there will be a whole weekend of festivities and fun all across Upstate NY and of course, A SHIT LOAD OF LIVE MUSIC!! What are YOU doing? Maybe this will help give you a nudge.
In Syracuse, you have a Disco Biscuits weekend, Giant Panda, and Sophistafunk to add to your choices.
Hometown heroes make triumphant returns to both sides of the states. It makes me proud to say that both Buffalo’s Aqueous and Albany’s Wild Adriatic have been greeted with blossoming success all over the US, including overseas. Aqueous returns to Buffalo for a weekend at The Iron Works. Wild Adriatic returns to The Hollow Bar in Albany for a VERY special 2 night engagement that will be recorded for their first official live album.
Right up the highway in Saratoga you will find Lucid, Formila 5, and Mister F at Putnam Den.
The Southern Tier will be Funkin’ and Rockin’ on Halloween night. Funk titans Kung Fu will be shaking the Oneonta Theatre with their friends Consider the Source. The Big Mean Sound Machine will be filling The Dock in Ithaca with funk at the fifth annual “Big Mean Halloween.” The newly reopened Magic City Music Hall will have a free Halloween bash hosted by rock and roll tribute band, The Kiss Army.
Rochester gives you Driftwood at The German House and a “1970’s Outerspace Disco” at Flour City Station on Halloween night and allows you to wind down your weekend on Sunday, November 1 when the Yonder Mountain String Band roll into Rochester for a show at Anthology.
