Happy Halloween from the whole Pancakes crew! Things are gonna get spooky, but there’s one horror you won’t want to face down with: not knowing which concerts to go to this week. So grab our Pancake Picks and a flashlight, and run for your life to the best shows in the city.
A Place To Bury Strangers @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar – Spend Hallow’s Eve with A Place To Bury Strangers, the NYC rockers with the heavy, psych sound who brought us Transfixiation last year. They’ll be partying at Brooklyn Bazaar tonight, and it’s sure to be a spine-tingling set.
