Primo Levi

Other Nights of the Halloweek


This Saturday, we’ve got a party. But not just any party; it’s Halloween, and we’re dressing things up more than usual at 12-turn-13. While we’re hanging the decorations from the ceilings and filling up the bathtub for apple-bobbing, our minds will be elsewhere – it’s a good week to go out in New York.

For our more cerebral side, there’s an orchestral tribute to Italian-Jewish writer/chemist Primo Levi at Asia Society; and for the side of us that likes to get weirded out, there’s a reading by Oxbow singer, Eugene Robinson, who is insane (see picture above). Thursday, from 5 to 7 at Other Music, a photo exhibition about the Magnetic Fields opens, and Stephin Merritt, the band’s leader, plays the background music.

Fabulous Diamonds, a two-piece drone band with slow-chugging drums and effect-laden analog synths, plays Todd P’s Monster Island Basement on Friday, and on Sunday, the day after our Hallowed affair, the real Halloween takes place, again with Mister P. He’s got a big show happening at the Ridgewood Masonic Temple with Janka Nabay, the Sierra Leonese king of Bubu Music. Finally, Jonathan Richman helps you come down on Monday. Details for everything after the jump. . . . Read on

Although we tend to think that paying $500 for a week’s worth of live music is pretty steep, we’re more than happy to crash the marathon’s best showcases – for an average of ten bucks a pop.

Here are our picks for each day of CMJ… and a couple of options for those seeking sweet relief from the madness. . . . Read on
