Let the math-noise-pop-weird-post-punk-once instrumental roll on! On October 21st, Starskate is playing with All Your Sisters and the Dawner Party. Starskate is ex Batman vs. Predator and completely awesome. All Your Sisters is Fafafa’s Jordan Morrison rocking the guitar with a drum machine and programmed synths. It also is awesome. The Dawner Party fall between Sonic Youth and something much stupider, but in a good awesome kind of way. It’s all going to at the HPHQ, maybe for the last time… Friday, October 21st at the HPHQ Doors 7:30pm/Show 8pm, $5. DON’T.MISS.THIS.

October Fundraisers – Bowl Opening, Makeup Class, Blaffle Pop
