Cold Activated w/ Black Lips

The Deal: I don't know, who cares.
The Place: The Shank
The Price: $5
The Details: The fucking Black Lips are playing with fucking Cerebral Ballzy at the fucking Shank, all thanks to fucking Jelly. Pretty fucking rad, huh? The Shank is a DIY joint so the booze should be on the cheap side but I promise you there will be shit tons of kids sneaking shit in. This will be complete and total madness. Rest up, you'll need the extra energy to survive this one.

Michigan Gives Four Loko 30 Days To Get Out

Michigan is the first of what will likely be many states to outlaw Four Loko. The energy infused booze has been given 30 days to clear out. There has been a mass hysteria as of late around Four Loko due to it's strong alcohol content and popularity with college-age kids. News outlets have been giving Four Loko the business for about a month now due to bannings at colleges all over the country.

As you all know, we here at Booze Party are on Team Four Loko. We're Americans and think people should be able to get smashed if they so choose. If you don't support Team Four Loko you don't support freedom and you're probably a commie pinko. Red Bull and vodka is cool but not the Loke? Explain.

This is only the beginning. If you think other states won't follow suit then you are mistaken (Pennsylvania is already working on it). Unfortunately we are weak drunkards with no say and there isn't shit we can do about it...unless it were super easy to make our own Sparks/Four Loko/Joose. Stock up while you still have the chance.

Welcome Home Weezy

The Deal: $3 Atomic Lager & other cheap shit
The Place: Legion
The Price: FREE
The Details: I'm going to give it to you straight and you're not going to like it. I don't dig Weezy and I especially don't like Cash Money or Southern hip-hop in general. That said, I know you whippersnappers are into this shit and will probably bring your A-game to this party so it gets top listing. Enjoy it. I'll be at home with 36 Chambers blasting on repeat.

The Place: Macri Park
The Price: FREE
The Details: This is a brand new weekly from BlakeFM (?) featuring Mike Dextro, Dimitry and more. I don't love Macri Park, not sure why. Maybe it's because of it's cave-like vibe, although, partying in a cave sounds pretty good. Hmm....

Pizza Metal

The Deal: $2 Bud & Bud Light
The Place: Roberta's
The Price: Not sure, $12 I think
The Details: A shit load of metal bands including Natur, NAAM and Wizardry (amongst others) are playing Roberta's. When you think about it a bunch of Viking looking dudes playing loud scary music seems like an obvious choice for Halloween, plus the food at this joint is amazing

Honorable Mentions

So there's lots of good parties tonight that do not have any drink deals listed. Does that mean they don't have cheap booze? Nope. In fact some of these def have cheap booze but maybe not all of them. So here goes, proceed with caution.
  • Panache & Todd P Halloween: Generally speaking Todd P shows tend to have cheap booze, most DIY shows do. The lineup is awesome: Das Racist, The Beets, Keepaway, Pictureplane, The Babies performing as The White Stripes and more. Will be a good time and most likely the booze is cheap. $13 cover in costume, $15 w/o.
  • NY Night Train 5th Anniversary Spook-Tacular: Jonathan Toubin is one of the best DJs in NYC and tonight he celebrates 5 years of killer dance parties. Once again we have a semi-DIY type party so the booze should be cheap. Live music from No Bra, Ian Svenonius and more. $10 8pm-1am, $5 1am-5am.
  • Fright Night: Halloween party at Gallery Bar which usually has cheap booze. Cobra Krames, Skinny Friedman, DKDS and pals are your DJs. Free before midnight, $3 after. 
  • Halloween Night: I haven't been to The Woods in awhile but it's an awesome bar and as I recall they have a variety of $3 beers.
