For those of you who are making your Halloween plans two months in advance (we know you exist!)— two members of Cruel Summer are playing in TWO super spooky cover bands on Halloween Eve! Josh is playing in a Christian Death tribute and Thea is playing in a Breeders tribute band! It’s gonna be SO FUN!

Where: THE KNOCKOUT!

When: Halloween eve, Thursday October 30th

Who:

SONIC YOUTH aka KILL YR IDOLS (members of Maus Haus)

CHRISTIAN DEATH aka ?? 

THE BREEDERS aka REGGAE BONG aka DEAL WITH NO DEALS

and possibly the Terry Malts as…They don’t know just yet!

Why: FOR FUN DUH

TIS THE EVENT OF THE SEASON! 

These girls are in a real cool new band called LOUIE PAIN. Thea used to live with them in Bernal Heights before she moved to Oakland this spring. They are a powerful trio, new to their instruments, and their sound evokes Mission of Burma, Big Black and the Breeders. They just put out their demo: here

We hope you will love them as much as we do!
