Monster Mashup Conjures Old Spirits of the Stage While Introducing New Local Coalition

Local musicians don musical costumes to benefit the People’s Party


There’s an aura about Nietzsche’s that makes it a perfect haunt for a Halloween party.

On the Thursday before All Hallows’ Eve, three local acts will don musical costumes to join the spirits already hovering around the eclectic Allentown club, all in support of a new coalition of young organizations dedicated to a better Buffalo.

The Monster Mashup offers three stellar sets – showstopping saxman/keyboardist/singer Eric Crittenden leading Critt’s Juke Joint, including bassist Jerry Livingston, formerly of Rick James’ Stone City Band, in a set of “Buffadelic Ghosts of Funk Past”; preceding them will be the riotously received tribute to the Talking Heads by innovative instrumentalists Lazlo Hollyfeld and young singer/guitarist Sonny Baker; and bookending the night are “Turntable Tricks & Treats” from the terrific tandem of DJs Cutler and LoPro.

In addition to receiving partial proceeds from the event, the People’s Party – a coalition of local organizations including Buffalo First!, Buffalo CarShare, and Heart of the City Neighborhoods – will be rewarding all those to come in costume with a grab bag of treats that’ll top anything handed out on a doorstep, including restaurant and music gift certificates. Representatives of each organization will serve as judges in a music-themed costume contest.

“This is a perfect debut for the People’s Party,” said Buffalo First! Executive Director Sarah Bishop. “Of course we want to inform people about our work to help make Buffalo a better place, but more importantly, we want to have fun – as a judge of the musical costume contest, I better see at least one person dressed as Rick James.”

The Monster Mashup kicks off at 8 p.m. – it’s a 21 & over event, with admission set at $10.
