Amsterdam BeatClub: Halloween Party at Slachthuis Haarlem

& The HelloWeeners (bloody 60's horrorgarage)
dj's: Ir. Venderghoul & Dr. Serhat Oguz
GoGo Ghoulettes: The Barbarellas!

Munly & the Lupercalians (US)
Once started as the side project of Jay Munly of Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Munly & The Lupercalians have since become a full-fledged band in which most of the other Slim Cessna band members are also involved. Munly & the Lupercalians put folk in a surrealistic and gothic jacket, or rather, garb. On stage, they're easy to spot: three percussionists in long dresses and covered faces, and frontman Jay Munly in a black suit with a banjo. Not only their sound is therefore steeped in this dark & ​​mysterious atmosphere. So it's a no-brainer that this show will take place in the new Slachthuis. Munly's mercilessly eccentric voice will stay with you for a long time. This in combination with the interplay of the musicians ensures an unforgettable experience.

The HelloWeeners (bloody 60's horrorgarage)
The sick psychos from the Netherregents will take an extra shot of Strychnine before playing their horrific mix of 60’s rock'roll and fuzzy garage-sounds to their undead crowd!

20:00 - 01:00 | FREE ENTRANCE between 20:00-21:00! |  after 21:00: E7

Amsterdam BeatClub at De Nieuwe Anita
great music, fab cocktails, cool dancing & party-time!!!

live: The Tambles (Bickerton Records)
60's deejays: Ir. Vendermeulen & Marycherry

The Tambles are ready to rock the world with their garagerock 'n roll. After their debut album Don't You Want To Know, they toured The Netherlands and Spain and did support for Supergrass in sold-out venues in Europe. Think: the silliness of The Kinks mixed with the best riffs Keith Richards never thought of and harmony vocals like you haven't heard since The Band played The Last Waltz.The new album Scraping By was released on Bickerton Records this summer and is now available on all streaming services and on LP and CD!

Marycherry is a Berlin and Paris based DJ, host of the Psyché-O-Rama show on Rock&Folk Radio in Paris and her own events called ,,A Night with Marycherry’’. She's also part of a girls-only collective based in the US, called ,, Les Filles'' and plays 60s Garage, Freakbeat, and usually mixes it with some Motown or Soul. Living in France for 11 years has brought her deeper into Yé-Yé music, which also inspires a lot of her mixes and sets.  What brings her the biggest joy is to meet different people while djing and make them dance and give them a good time, and see them smiling. This will be her very first spin at Amsterdam BeatClub.. we're happy to have her!

Ir. Vendermeulen doesn't need much introduction, it's just cool music all the way!
