Halloween is coming and Slushy is playing two or three very special shows.

First, a one time only lineup of Chris and some special guests are playing a house party on Saturday October 29! Covers! Guitar solos! Ebriation! Covers!

Then Monday October 31 Slushy and Chicago’s own Uh Bones are playing a feedback-drenched set of songs from the first two Velvet Underground albums at The Exit, Chicago’s oldest punk bar.

And speaking of playing sets as the Velvet Underground, we may just crash the Halloween show at Crown Tap Room and do a second set there. Only time can tell.

Update: We did the Mash

Few people write them like they used to, but one man who does is Mark Sultan. Mark’s probably best known for being half of the King Khan and BBQ show, but his solo stuff is equally as great. The best of 60s soul, pop and garage smartly packed together and played Dick van Dyke one man band style.

So I’m really excited that Slushy gets to play with Mark Sultan tonight. Like Babe Ruth we’re gonna swing for the fences and like Dire Straights we’re just gonna be neon outlines of ourselves. Tonight! Ultra Lounge! Chicago! Be there!
