Do the 45 Spook-a-Thon!

Do The 45 is the reet music record hop hosted by DJ Pete Pop and held on the last Friday of the month at Quinn’s in Beacon, NY. Mr. Pop picked his guest disc slingers: Nina Day (aka Hardly Quinn) and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus. With the date’s close proximity to Halloween, folks were asked to dress in costume and a swingin’ night was guaranteed to take place.

However, for some reason, the October edition of Do The 45 was shifted to the last Thursday.

THURSDAY!! It’s a school night! Nobody will be there! Pete Pop and The Boog lamented over a secret message service all week about how they planned on playing boss monster records for the occasion, and feared no one will be in the joint to dig them. Miss Nancy G was cooking up vegan brownies and chocolate cookies (with eyeballs!)—who will eat them?

All fears were for nothing. Not only did folks show up to dig and dance, but all of sweet Nancy’s treats were devoured! It ended up being a fantastic night. DJ Pete Pop and DJ Nina Day played fabulous records all night long—including many Halloween-oriented discs. All three DJs were dressed in outrageous garb, as were many of those in attendance.
