Dance Club Pick: Where Did I Put My Undead Tony Wilson Costume?
Halloween is still more than a week away, but something wicked this way has already come to clubland. At HM 157's Haunted Mansion Zombie Spectacle, DJ Don Bolles will provide the dancing skeletons with ghoulish grooves (and his nightmarish Alice Cooper tribute). Human Flys, a Cramps tribute band featuring Club Makeup alum Jack Atlantis, headlines, and there'll be plenty more in the cauldron including Quazar & the Bamboozled (doing Dr. John vs. the Muppets), MCs Andrew Abelson & Jean Spinosa and others. 3110 N. Broadway, Lincoln Heights; Sat., Oct. 23. Tickets and more info at myspace.com/hm157. The next night, Part Time Punks dons a Hacienda guise for its PTP's Factory Records Night, an eve devoted to Tony Wilson's legendary label, featuring everything from New Order, Happy Mondays and Blurt to Abecedarians, Cabaret Voltaire and acts only real 24 Hour Party People will probably remember. Live performance by all-star tribute band Boy Division. Echo, 1822 Sunset Blvd., L.A.; Sun., Oct. 24. parttimepunks.com. And the "little monsters" (as in Gaga gays) will be out in full force for Tigerheat's Annual Halloween party, so get ready to just dance to pop hits from DVDJ Ray Rhodes or strike a pose in the special Halloween photo booth. Diva costumes should be on point. Avalon, 1735 Vine St., Hlywd.; Thurs., Oct. 28. clubtigerheat.com.
