Tonight in Seattle (10/31): Goodbye Funhouse and morePosted by Mark Naborczyk
Goodbye Funhouse @ The Funhouse | $8 | 7pm | 21+
On this night of Halloween we temporarily lay to rest a Seattle icon – The Funhouse. As a mainstay in all of our punk-rock hearts, The Funhouse has been tied to unforgettable memories (and hangovers we wish we could forget) for many of us Seattleites and tonight, it’s last, they’re throwing a party large enough to shake the Space Needle. From the roaring Misfits covers of Glenn or Glennda? to the maniacal stage show of The Downstrokes, they’re hosting seven bands tonight that all have members who’ve been on The Funhouse’s payroll. It’s a fittingly family affair and if you’ve ever raised a tall-boy or a shot of whiskey within these walls – that includes you.
Stop in, have a drink, shoot one last basketball and say goodbye (for now) to this legend.
You can read more about the Funhouse and tonight’s show in this great article here by Jessica Kaminski.
Crypts, Ononos, Haunted Horses, Battle Stations @ Chop Suey | $7 | 8pm | 21+
As we’ve written about here, Crypts are putting on a horrifyingly great show at Chop Suey tonight in Seattle in honor of Halloween!
B-horror fans rejoice and break out those Ray-Bans because The Connerys are using their garage-rock prowess tonight to both make you shake, shake, shake and do a live scoring of John Carpenter’s classic, They Live. Yes – A live scoring of They Live!
