SHOCKTOBER is upon us!


We’re taking a break from our Band of the Month series this month, to give you an extra special concept for October. We call it, SHOCKTOBER: A tribute to Shock Rock and the spookier side of 80’s Metal!

Shock rock is an umbrella term for artists who combine rock music or metal with highly theatrical live performances emphasizing shock value. All month long we’ll be serving up favorites from the creepiest rockers of all time. . . Alice Cooper, Mötley Crüe, Iron Maiden, W.A.S.P., Dio, Metallica, and many more will be haunting our set every single night. Get ready for an absolutely bloody, filthy, wicked good time!

The party kick starts on Friday, October 7th in Orland Park, IL at Black Sheep, and goes all the way to our big Halloween Bash at Baxter’s 942 in Louisville, KY on October 29th. See below to find out when Hairbanger’s Ball’s SHOCKTOBER comes to your town:
