Monster Mashup benefit bash
Who needs the Monster Mash when you can have the Monster Mashup? Allentown’s Nietzsches -- a pretty spooky locale on any day of the year -- will host three bone-chilling acts this Thursday in order to support a new coalition of young organizations dedicated to bettering Buffalo.
The People’s Party, made up of Buffalo First, Buffalo Carshare and Heart of the City Neighborhoods Incorporated, will reap the benefits of this killer concert, which will include rousing sets from Critt’s Juke Joint, Lazlo Hollyfeld with Sonny Baker and DJs Cutler and LoPro.
Critt’s Juke Joint, lead by Eric Crittenden and featuring bassist Jerry Livingston of Rick James’ Stone City Band, will throw down a set promising classics from Buffalo’s funkadelic-laced past and Lazlo Hollyfeld will don costumes both physically and musically, performing an entire set inspired by the Talking Heads.
Costumed guests will receive treat-filled goodie bags and are invited to participate in a costume contest, judged by representatives from each of the benefiting non-profit organizations.
“This is a perfect debut for the People’s Party,” said Buffalo First Executive Director Sarah Bishop. “Of course we want to inform people about our work to help make Buffalo a better place, but more importantly, we want to have fun – as a judge of the musical costume contest, I better see at least one person dressed as Rick James.”
The Monster Mashup kicks off at 8 p.m. Dead or undead, it’s a 21 & over event, with admission set at $10.
