Upcoming Shows: Lightning Bolt, Stupid Party + more

Friday, October 30

Lightning Bolt + Black Dice @ Above the Auto Parts Store | Bushwick, Brooklyn (near Market Hotel)
Lightning Bolt are a post-hardcore band that play drums and bass at 10,000 mph, with enough distortion to singe off your eyebrows. They just put out what's possibly their best album yet. [RFR Live Review] [MySpace]

Saturday, October 31 (some sort of holiday, I gather)

Stupid Party @ Bruar Falls | Williamsburg, Brooklyn | $5 w costume / $8 without
I like Stupid Party. They are so badass. They are a punk-ish sort of band that is giving the finger to everyone else with their wild noise, sweet hooks and rawkus shows. Most importantly, they are way more down to earth than 99% of Brooklyn bands, and are 99 times more fun to watch. [RFR Live Review] [MySpace]

Monday, November 2

Knight School @ Bruar Falls | Williamsburg, Brooklyn | FREE
I couldn't not list this show, because it's FREE!!! Knight School are a fuzzy lo-fi pop band with some first-class melodies. They are noisy enough and rough enough around the edges to avoid the wussiness of many of their peers. [MySpace]
