Diamanda Galas: Death Will Come and Will Have Your Eyes
Thursday May 12 and Saturday May 14 at Red Bull Music Academy at 258 W 118th Street
Believe me when I tell you that this one is worth the trip uptown. The Red Bull Music Academy Festival is back, and as usual their title isn’t the only thing that’s a bit of a mouth full. They always seem to be asking a lot of their guests, most of whom probably don’t wanna take some class on the anatomy of so-and-so and would just like to please hear some dang music.

Halloween Party: The Gateway’s Haunted Mansion

This brand new DIY venue close to the Gates Avenue stop is hosting a totally free Halloween show featuring DJs plus garage, dream pop, and surf rock bands for the taking. The lineup includes Low Mein, High Waisted, Mahogany, Young Runner, Wolf Diamond, and more. So far they’ve only opened the upstairs performance space, complete with a bar and an expansive back patio for the smoking types, but this party will see the debut of their downstairs space, which will soon be home to a slightly fancier bar with real drinks once they have their liquor license. And no, the picture you see above isn’t the place decked out for Halloween– The Gateway always looks like a lost set from Dario Argento’s Suspiria which probably means it’s gonna look ultra creepy for this party.
