Happy Halloween everyone! Some of our more spirited DJs have special themed shows this week (Halloween and otherwise). Check them out below.
A Minute Pause — Tuesday at 10 a.m.
Shawn Watson will be playing four hours of loosely Halloween-themed music during his show on Tuesday. You can also catch him playing a Halloween playlist at Kelly’s Bar and Lounge Wednesday starting at 9 p.m.
Blue Velvet & Black Coffee — Tuesday at 2 p.m.
Patrick will be playing a Halloween-themed show with esoteric spooky songs.
Couch Dancing — Wednesday at 2 p.m.
A yearly tradition since her first Halloween show in 2006, DJ Firefly will be playing 3 hours of deliciously ghostly-creepy spytastic grooves designed to give you nightmares & heebee-jeebies (or at least a decent costume idea). This year she’ll also be featuring several tracks by local Pittsburgh musicians.
Pinkney Hall — Friday at 9 a.m.
This Friday, enjoy two hours of Pinkney Hall. The first hour will feature songs about trains. Then, to commemorate Lou Reed’s passing, you’ll hear Metal Machine Music. Reed said of this record, “No one I know has listened to it all the way through, including myself.” But that all changes Friday, when Kenny Joe plays the entire record starting around 9:50 a.m.
Zombo in Your Brain — Friday at noon.
Zombo will be doing an all ghost show this Friday from noon to 4 p.m.
