Happy Halloween

DSC05680Among the countless costume parties happening this weekend as part of the modern-day carnevale known as Halloween, last night's Rubulad shindig in a Gowanus warehouse at least offered some musical diversions beyond Bobby "Boris" Pickett. Accordionist Mary-Go-Round sounded like a cross between Edith Piaf and Janis Joplin, while the Morricone Youth - all wearing identical rubber masks - jammed a brass-heavy mix of film soundtracks, along with some spicy originals. I swear, you've never seen Spiderman get down like that.
