The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news
There’s plenty of Halloween parties this year, but there’s only one Halloween party at the Armory and it’s the only one with Rob Garza from Thievery Corporation spinning. This year’s Armory Halloween bash also boasts Syd Gris and the Vau de Vire Society all vamping it up together for Phantasm: A Karnival of Mischief on Saturday, October 31 at The Armory  (14th St. & Mission). With Halloween on a Saturday this year, the Armory is your classiest, most all-star-cast kind of shit you’ll find with general admission tickets still available to allow you to see all these dope fucking acts. Rob Garza took a moment to chat with about this creepy, kooky, altogether-ooky event.


“I’m super excited for the event, such an awesome holiday to celebrate especially in my home city of San Francisco,” Rob Garza told Indeed Rob has been great to his home city, in recent years popping in unannounced to play surprise sets at the Breakfast of Champions party

“Its been incredible to think how the event will be with Syd Gris of Opel Productions and Mike Gaines of Vau de Vire putting so much into the show,” Garza said. “The creative and production aspects are really next level, its going to get freaky!”


Fresh off being profiled in Spin Magazine, local DJ superstar Syd Gris is the co-founder of Phantasm SF, founder of Opel Productions and co-producer of the New Bohemia NYE. The imprimatur of that massive superparty will be all over the many stages and interactive performance areas at the Phantasm Halloween bash.
