It’s hard to think of a better name for a Halloween special than Haunted Hole of Noise, but even that is outdone by the line up of Real(s), Fat Earthers and Healthy Junkies. Get down to DIY Thursdays early on Saturday for free limited edition band and David Bowie badges, and there are even prizes for best costumes. Unbeatable stuff.
Southampton hosts a very exclusive night of beats on Friday with Verb T and Pitch 92. It’s limited to 100 tickets so you need to get on this fast.
This is also going to be great: Starsha Lee with Jan Doyle Band, Ditsea Yella and Holy Braille at the Beehive on Saturday.
I do not know where Staithes is, but if you do and you are near there on Saturday you can see Snakerattlers for free at The Captain Cook.
Casual Drag have two shows in Scotland this week. Catch them in Glasgow on Friday and then launching their debut single ‘Isolation Island’ in Edinburgh on Saturday.
Also two chances to see Frauds this week. First in Sheffield on Friday and then as part of the Shacklewell Arms Halloween Ball line up, alongside Table Scraps, The Cosmics and Gravey. Free entry to that one, too.
Also free at the Finsbury on Tuesday for The Sly Persuaders, ARXX, Dutch Mustard and Ich Bin Finn.
Here’s another really good Halloween party, this time at the Fox and Firkin on Saturday. See The Widows, Sex Cells, The Slaughter House Band and Limbs. Worth getting in early or buying pre-sale tix to save a buck or three.
She Drew The Gun are on full tour duty from this week. They start off in Exeter, Bournemouth, Brighton, Bedford and Reading but there’s a lot more ground being covered over the following weeks.
Sleep Eaters are also on tour this week, joining Flamingods in Guildford and Nottingham.
