Macabre Faire Long Island @ Mill River Best Western Hotel An event showcasing eccentric horror prop and macabre-themed vendors, panelists, local musicians, nostalgic horror movies, Long Island’s very own filmmaker Jim Haggerty and special guest, actor Doug Jones come to Rockville Centre this weekend. The Macabre Faire makes its Long Island debut with a steam punk, neo-Victorian and gothic fashion show, a panel led by the folks behind Long Island’s Halloween attraction, Nyctophobia; and a live shadow cast performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Like their slogan says: Where shadow’s lurk and corsets tighten, top hats gather and the undead frighten… The mayhem begins on none other than Friday the 13th. Coincidence? We think not. www.TwitchTwitchProductions.com. Friday, 4.13 – Sunday, 4.15 —Jaclyn Gallucci
Stengelfest @ Smithtown Masonic Temple This mini-festival, stretching over three days with local and national artists, has been the culmination of local promoter John Stengel’s (Live Source Long Island) work for the past six years. Planned masterfully, each date is geared towards a certain genre—Friday, 4.13: North Korea & Night Fevers (Indie Rock); Saturday, 4.14: This is Hell and Kills & Thrills (Hardcore)’ and Sunday, 4.15: Bad Rabbits and Into it Over It (Indie Punk). “This is by far the biggest event I have put together,” says Stengel. “I’m so stoked.” And if the shows weren’t enough, local after-parties Cheers and Halo Lounge will have local DJs spinning well into the night. Expect to hear everything from hip-hop and dub step to electronica and everything in-between. Aside from the headliners above, here are some recommended acts to see: Gabriel the Marine, This Condition, Life as a Ghost and NGHBRS. www.livesourceli.com—Anthony Dobrini

For this benefit, Snider’s efforts hit closer to home with proceeds going to the Sid Jacobson JCC programs serving the families of and children, teens and adults with autism spectrum disorders. Doing the musical heavy lifting on this evening will be Blue Oyster Cult’s Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma, Merrick’s Debbie Gibson, Nine Days’ John Hampson, Zebra’s Randy Jackson, Rainbow/Black Sabbath drummer Bobby Rondinelli, Mountain’s Leslie West and Twisted Sister bandmate Mark Mendoza.
