OUR NYC ALTERNATIVE SUGGESTIONS

HALLOWEEN, AS WE LIKE IT!

As Halloween in New York City clubs has grown, crowds of all ages and tastes have exploded, from costume geniuses to completely clueless borough tourists. This year both Saturday and Sunday nights should be crazy crowded, making it hard to get around on anything BUT public transportation or foot power. It is possible to have a truly great night out with a bit of research and pre-planning, despite these obstacles. With NYC alternative nightlife in an upswing, there are many promising Halloween choices this year and we will be adding more to this page as more are announced. As in years past we've focused on reasonably priced Halloween alternatives with advance ticket cover at $20 or under, and day of show tickets at $30 or under (if available). These are all hosted, produced or starring night creatures from our many creative tribes, from Jackie Factory and Click + Drag legends to rising stars. As always, we do not recommend any events that we would not go to ourselves.

For many more choices visit the EDGE OF NIGHT forum on THE MOTHERBOARDS, where Board Moderators select events of special interest to our audience.
