Join Built4BBQ October 28 at The Hangar on the Hudson for our latest and greatest Halloween hootenanny!
The monstrous mixed bill features rare performances from 518 fuzz-surf favorites Kimono Dragons and one-man country-blues troubadour Henry’s Rifle — both making their first live appearances in three years — plus local punkers Girth Control, hilltown noise machine Turf ‘n’ Turf, and touring ska/core acts PWRUP and Do It With Malice.
Striking fear into the hearts of audiences throughout the eastern seaboard, Kimono Dragons bring their Godzilla-sized sci-fi surf-punk to the party. Fuzz, reverb and a thunderous rhythm section collide into a tidal wave of instrumental glory.
The alter-ego of Albany songsmith John Pipino, Henry’s Rifle is pure fire ‘n’ brimstone country-blues. With a battered six-string banjo, a scorched holler and a pair of boots stomping on an old suitcase, Henry’s Rifle conjures up heaven, hell and all the American ghosts haunting the barrooms and plowfields in between.
A celebration of all things fast, loud, and dumb, Troy ska-punks Girth Control are still joking after all these years. The dudes have beer-bonged their way around the northeast since 2014, cranking out a full-length album, a 14-song 7″, and a series of seasonal singles including the spooky Halloween hit “Zombies Stole My 40” .
Western Mass workin’ class ska, punk & thrash maniacs PWRUP make their Albany-area debut, mixing high-energy hardcore with blaring brass, prog riffs, and dance-ready breaks.
Trucking in from Buffalo, Do It With Malice formed way back in 2004 and recently returned to the stage after a ten year hiatus. Experty mixing ska and punk like butter and Frank’s Red Hot, it’s a classic, spicy, and delicious blend that goes with everything.
Lurking in the hills above the Mohawk Valley, one-man nuclear blues noise machine Turf ‘n’ Turf twists chicken wire, scrap metal, and slide guitar into a molten mess of rock ‘n’ roll. You will never forget your first Turf ‘n’ Turf show.
The Hangar on the Hudson is located at 675 River Street, Troy NY 12180. $10 at the door, cash only, all ages, costumes encouraged.
