“Ode to Bobbie Gentry” w/ Julie Klausner and more @ The Bell House
Comedian Julie Klausner hosts this tribute to country singer Bobbie Gentry who had a smash hit in 1967 with “Ode to Billie Joe.” The evening includes the premiere of never-seen archival footage of Bobbie Gentry performing in Vegas, plus performances by Klausner, Jill Sobule, Ted Leo, Laura Cantrell, Jean Grae, Tammy Faye Starlite, Eszter Balint, Nath Ann Carrera, Josh Kantor, Phil D’Agostino and surprise guests.
Kristin Hersh, Fred Abong, Rob Ahlers @ Rough Trade
Throwing Muses frontwoman Kritin Hersh just released new LP Possible Dust Clouds, a rock record that hearkens back to the Muses’ ’90s era. She play a release show tonight with former TM basses Fred Abong on the bill as well.
Steely Dan @ Beacon Theatre
Donald Fagen wrap up this year’s Steely Dan Beacon Theatre run with a night of “Greatest Hits.”
Morricone Youth (Night of the Living Dead live score) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Morricone Youth will play a live score along to a screening of George Romero’s iconic zombie classic Night of the Living Dead, which sounds like a good way to spend Devil’s Night.
Beastie Boys Book: Live & Direct with Ad-Rock and Mike D @ Kings Theatre
The new Beastie Boys Book, which is out today, is not your average memoir and this is not your average book tour, featuring “readings, a conversation between Mike D, Ad-Rock and a special guest moderator, plus a Q&A – all with a live score provided by Mix Master Mike.”
Howe Gelb @ Littlefield
Frontman for indie rock vets Giant Sand, Howe Gelb is delving “into the lost art of the piano standard” on his current tour.
Sally Can’t Dance, Tribute to The Cramps @ The Bowery Electric
This monthly tribute party will be deep in human flies and goo goo muck as they salute the late Lux Interior and The Cramps. Guest vocalists include Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello) Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues), Jack Terricloth (World/Inferno Friendship Society), Jesse Malin, Daddy Long Legs, Miss Guy (Toilet Boys), and tons more, plus DJs Jonathan Toubin and Howie Pyro.
Wavves, Beach Fossils, Kevin Krauter @ Elsewhere
Beach Fossils threw a very fun Halloween party at Brooklyn Steel last year, and this year they’re back, with Wavves in tow, for two spooky nights at Elsewhere. Kevin Krauter, formerly of Hoops, opens.
Alphaville Halloween Party
Bushwick venue Alphaville is throwing this free Halloween covers extravaganza featuring bands as Gary Numan, X, The Go-Gos, Radiohead, and Mazzy Star.
The Generator Series w/ Ilana Glazer @ Murmrr Theatre
You may remember that Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer hosted the four-part “Generator Series” in July where she interviewed activists and politicians “to see how they each serve us – the people.” She’s bringing the Generator Series back for four nights leading up to the midterm elections.
Abbi Jacobson (a conversation with) @ Town Hall
Meanwhile, the other half of Broad City, Abbi Jacobson, releases her new book, I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff, tonight and will talk about it at this event tonight.
Ice Balloons, Shana Falana, Feral Scouts @ Trans-Pecos
TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone lets his freak flag fly with Ice Balloons who are much more of a straight-up party than his more well-known group. Gothy artist Shana Falana and the heavy/punky Feral Scouts make for a fun triple bill.
Roky Erickson, White Mystery @ WFMU Monty Hall
In town for Jonathan Toubin’s Halloween Hop, the former 13th Floor Elevators frontman plays this very intimate (and sold out) show that’s also benefit for Monty Hall.
The Psychedelic Furs @ Bergen PAC
It’s still okay to dance like Molly Ringwald, especially when seeing Richard and Tim Butler’s veteran alt-rock/new wavers trot out on the hits. “Love My Way,” “Into You Like a Train,” and “President Gas” still sound great.
Chief Keef @ Irving Plaza
Chief Keef isn’t as omnipresent as he was during the “I Don’t Like” days, but he’s stayed incredibly prolific and released at least a few other gems over the years.
Springsteen on Broadway
The Boss continues his sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which runs through December. At these shows, Bruce is giving fans shows “that are as personal and as intimate as possible.”
