Local Halloween Show Resurrects for Sixth-Straight Year

"The Graveyard Smash" is a free concert and promotion by West Point resident and promoter Derek Calhoun of Lansdale Local Productions

There's another maelstrom about to blow into town, and it's not Sandra.

"The Graveyard Smash" returns to Lansdale for the sixth year tonight, complete with some familiar names and some odd debuts. This year's show is in the upstairs ballroom of Third and Walnut Lounge.

The event is promoted by Lansdale Local.

You must be 21 or older to enter — and there's no smoking.

And it's free

The night of mayhem and drunken-costumed debauchery begins with Allentown punks The American Myth at 7 p.m.

Touring Detroit punk The Handme Downs follows at 7:30 p.m.

Local favorite Friends With Murder bring their depraved "Lansdale thunderstomp" to Third and Walnut at 8 p.m.

If you love pro wrestling entrance themes — and a bit of `90s alternative — then stick around for The Smart Marks at 8:30 p.m., featuring "The Roman Delight" Tony Wonder on guest vocals and members of Lansdale band Rough Justice.

Phoenixville pop punk Stoked on Being Pumped is set to go on at 9 p.m.

Legendary Divorce will feature an amalgum of `90s grunge with Philly noise with a couple covers of Nirvana favorites at 9:30 p.m.

Lansdale hardcore band Troublesome and Schwenksville punkers Animal Haus close out the night.
