HxC: Frightfully Good October Shows

October always seems to bring the best bands rolling through PVD, and this year is no exception. Each weekend of the month is packed full of shows for fans of all types; you can get your taste of punk, metal, grind, hardcore and even pop punk. Rambudikon and the guys from Simons 677 are no strangers to their monthly fests, and this Halloween they are hosting the third annual Kreepfest. This all-day event will have more than a dozen local bands playing and a costume contest with a cash prize. Both Firehouse 13 and As220 will hold Halloween shows as well; if the local pop punk scene isn’t your taste, you can stop by either venue to catch some great punk and hardcore acts. Firehouse is hosting hardcore band Sheer Terror on Halloween night; local openers are still to be announced. If that isn’t enough, As220 is having a Halloween bash and costume party as well! PVD punk hardcore band Drop Dead will be headlining the night with Backslider and Your Enemy. If you couldn’t find any plans for Halloween night, there is plenty going on in the city, so catch some of your favorite locals and get dressed up!
