Tricks and Treats

Tricks and Treats: the Shadowscene mini guide to the best Halloween hangs and haunts.

Halloween is a BEAST when it comes to, well everything, but especially fright fest party overload. Every year we are inundated with killer events, shows and festive fun. This week alone, we’ve got the An Albatross show with Daughters, Shellac show at Union Transfer, an all vinyl rock n’ roll deep cuts and spooky DJ set at Ortliebs, the annual Sailor Jerry Rock n’ Roll Halloween (now at both North & South Garage bar) and the 4th Annual Tigerbeats Zombie edition! These are definitely our top selects for the Halloween week(end) in addition to the MAKING TIME Halloween with Boys Noize on Saturday, Halloweekend at Lost Bar with CB playing all vinyl all night long, and the Beaumont Warehouse Halloween metal mania featuring cover bands for Type O Negative, Roky Erickson and more! Sunday night kicks off with the Pins & Patches party at Ritual Ritual — legit at one of the coolest shops in Philly, showcasing a sick selection of newly designed pins and patches from over 30 artists… plus, costume contests, drinks and an after party at Ortliebs with DJ sets from Nothing.  The best is, most of these events aside from live shows are free or less than $10 with some sort of open bar, BYOB or drink specials. You can literally pick your own poison, complete with cheap tricks and freaky treats!
