Transcendent Events Presents: Halloween Mayhem

by Molly Guillermo 

Looking for something to do this Halloween? Have an amazing costume and unsure where to show it off? Love tacos? Look no further than Transcendent Event’s Halloween Mayhem in Baltimore on All Hallow’s Eve. The 21 and over event features free tacos, a costume contest, and live bands, including a debut performance by local emo rock band Flares. Also on the line-up is Greasy Hands, a self-described “funk driven psychedelic progressive rock” band whose single Phantasmagoria is a great soundtrack for a surreal evening. And if you’re in the mood for punchy melodies and a laidback rhythm? Outside Smoke’s performance is the one to watch. But don’t worry, metal-heads and moshers, Consumer Culture will be putting on a grungy performance at the end of the evening that will meet your spooky Halloween expectations. 

The venue, Angels Rock Bar, is “part lounge, part club, and all rock ‘n’ roll,” so get ready for a wild night in Power Plant Live. Head to the event at 7:00PM and make sure to fill up on your hour of free tacos at 8:00PM. And make sure your costume is on point, because there’s a prize for the best one.

GLOSSER Releases Deluxe Edition of Debut Record, DOWNER

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
