Myth: Linus was the only one who believed in the Great Pumpkin. Fact: Afroskull believes in the Great Pumpkin. The Great Pumpkin is a powerful bipartisan entity that will save our economy. The Great Pumpkin is an orange glowing beacon of hope. For the 42nd anniversary of the first television emergence of said rotund squash, Afroskull will converge on the Parkside Lounge to usher in the greatest musical holiday ever: Halloween. On this epic night your favorite monster-funk-rockers will not only be including a slew of never-before played covers (Led Zep with horns anyone?), but also taking it to the stage with more musicians than you can shake a razor-blade tainted apple at. Joining us will be the incomparable Dan Asher (making his funky triumphant return on the bass), the baddest three-piece horn section this side of Louisiana, plus special guests the Wild Koba on guitar and Isaac Davy Aronson on vocals!

Parkside Lounge Fri 3/21/08 – last show till summer!

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

Please join Afroskull for another encounter at the Parkside Lounge this Friday night, March 21st. It will be our final show at least until the middle of summer. Our guitarist, composer and fearless leader Joe Scatassa will be working in London for the next few months, and the commute to the Parkside will be a bit too much for him. He’ll be back in mid-July so we’ll be cranking the live show back up around that time. So please come by and give Joe a warm send-off.
