If you (like me) committed the Skidmore cardinal sin of missing out on Beatlemore this weekend, absolution is readily available. You can (re)live the magic in this recording of Saturday night’s Skidmore-only performance below.

[On another note: check out the music department’s livestream page for a whole slew of archived events that you probably missed as well. Shit, what with everything being thrown on the Internet, why go out anymore? Stay inside. Live your life from your computer desk. It’s safe there.]

Obviously, you should watch the entire performance, but we’ve done you the service of writing out the setlist below the video. You know, just in case you’re only watching so you can see your friend–the one you totally promised you would go, but you waited until the last minute and couldn’t get a ticket or just decided that your Northwoods apartment was too warm and toasty to schleck all the way to Zankel.

WSPN Halloween Show: The Sons and Heirs & Batman Nosebleed

Thursday, October 30th, 2014
You know what's real spooky? The lyrics to "Unhappy Birthday."

You know what’s real spooky? The lyrics to “Unhappy Birthday.”

Tonight at 8:00pm, WSPN will host their annual Halloween Show in Falstaff’s. This year’s bill will feature Skidmore band Batman Nosebleed, who will be donning the costumes of indie royalty, playing a Radiohead cover seat.

Formerly known by the so-bad-it’s-good name “Chromatic Breakdown,” they’ll be opening for NYC-based Smiths cover band The Son and Heirs, about whom The Daily Beast wrote “The Smiths will never re-form…so for most fans, The Sons & Heirs are the closest they will ever get.” In other words, it’s like seeing The Smiths live without having to, well, see The Smiths live, which is kind of nice, because these days Morrissey is really just a pretentious asshat with an insufferable Internet presence.

There will also be a costume contest with highly-coveted prizes like Uncommon and Pizza 7 gift cards. And free Esperanto’s. So fuck this indie red side bullshit, because you know this is worth going to just for that.

But really, the folks at WSPN don’t host shows often, but when they do, they always make quality picks for their headliners. Plus Batman Nosebleed is sounding smoooooth these days. So kick-off Halloweenmorethoughtmatters weekend in the best way possible: listening to solid covers of some great songs by two of the more influential bands of the past 30 years. (Pssst! Need guidance? We gotchoo.)
