HalloWEEKEND at the Note

Halloween in CoMo has never been just a one-day festivity. Students, families and professionals alike take the whole weekend as a chance to let loose, dress up in more than just one costume and PARTY. Well, us here at The Blue Note understand your desire to get freaky this weekend so we have a couple things planned to help you out. If you’re not already partying and getting ready to make your way to the Note, then you’re doing it wrong. Here are four reasons why you should spend your HalloWEEKEND at The Blue Note:

1. Night of the Living Dead.

This is the perfect way to start your Halloween weekend off right.

The first performer will be The Stone Sugar Shakedown. If you’re looking for some Halloween funk and folk to jam to with some good company then this is the perfect place for you to be. Better yet, they are known for killing it live.

The other performer will be Al Holliday and the East Side Rhythm Band. This band puts the perfect R&B twist on good funk music. Give it a listen before you come watch them 🙂

2. 80s vs. 90s Halloween Costume Ball

When: Saturday Oct. 29

I don’t know about you guys but during the weekend of Halloween, I look for any and all excuses to go out, get weird and get dressed up in ridiculous costumes. Well, LOOK NO FURTHER. This is the answer to all your desires. Choose your favorite decade and get crazy with your costume. I personally believe the 90s was the best decade ever. But I was born in the 90s, so I might be biased.

Regardless, its gonna be a party 🎉


3. Lucero

When: Sunday, Oct. 30

Ok, I know how it looks. There’s a lot going on and you’ve already gone hard for two days in a row and its not even Halloween yet! Well, why not take it down a notch without missing a night of fun?

Lucero will take you down to your country roots and give you a chance to kick back with good friends and listen to good music.

Here’s a little taste:

I’m not going to turn down good country during one of the most fun weekends of the year. You’d be crazy to do that.


4. Yep, you guessed it… TECH N9NE

Its a tradition people. Tech N9ne will be at The Blue Note on Halloween night, just like every year.

You’re whole weekend has been leading up to this night and we saved the best for last.

Halloween only comes once a year! Spend it wisely… (hint, hint) at The Blue Note.

Yes, this show will sell out. Yes, this will be the best night of your life.

Caribou Lou is truly a classic. It brings back so many good memories. I just had to put it in there to remind people how freaking awesome Tech N9ne is.

Best New Albums of 2014

Now that we are about halfway through 2014, it’s time we take a look back and list some of our favorite new albums of the year. It’s been a great year for music so far, and I was pulling my hair out trying to shave my favorite releases down to 10 choices.

Many of the artists on the list have even played The Blue Note or Mojo’s this year, supporting those new albums of theirs. Against Me!, Schoolboy Q, and Drive-By Truckers have all played The Blue Note this year.

Danny Brown, who features on Madlib and Freddie Gibbs track “High” also played at The Blue Note earlier this year. The War on Drugs and Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks have both played Mojo’s in 2014 as well.

Wye Oak are coming to Mojo’s July 21, 2014. Tickets are on sale now for $14. Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 8:30 pm. Freddie Gibbs will be opening for Tech N9ne Friday, June 27. Tickets are on sale now for $25. Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 8:30 pm.
