Hey there. Since James is quite busy helping make the Virginia Film Festival awesome this weekend (go see lots of the great films!), I figured, since I’m back in town for a few days, I’d jump in and give you a run down of what’s happening.

There’s always a ton of stuff going on for Halloween, but you shouldn’t miss this year’s Mass Sabbath, the fifth incarnation of “Earth’s largest BLACK SABBATH tribute/slaughter band.” Last year they rocked Satellite Ballroom, and this year they’re taking things to the IX Building as part of the Charlottesville Derby DamesMasquerade Ball. DJ Dalivah will start off the night at 8pm, then the Derby Dames will skate at 10pm and Mass Sabbath will slay starting at 11pm. You can find more details on Facebook.

Also, local rockers Straight Punch to the Crotch will be playing at Zinc. I reviewed their great album for C-VILLE a while back. They will undoubtedly rock and put on a fantastic show.

And if electronic dance music is what you want, DJ Cadence, DJ Double_E and DJ AudioRapture will be spinning tunes at Dust, along with video by Videonics and Colorboy. [Flyer]

And The Hill & Wood will be playing at Gravity Lounge.

So, get those costumes ready and have fun.

PS – I’m playing a show with DBB Plays Cups and San Fransisco’s Little Teeth at Dust on Saturday. Please make plans to come. It’s going to be a lot of fun.

    John, welcome back to the Nailgunosphere… If you’re back in NYC on Tuesday, you oughtta come to the crazy election-night dance party I’m spinning at! Many of the Ch’ville expatriate / tea alumni crowd will be there, and it should be memorable (for whole lots of reasons)!
