Halloween Dirty Deeds

When: Saturday 29th October 2022

Where: Corporation in Sheffield

Indie kids need a place to party on Halloween too, and that's where Corporation comes in. Self-proclaimed as Sheffield's Best Rock/Indie/Metal/Alt/Pop Night, Dirty Deed in Corp is a classic of its kind, and the sticky floors and labyrinth-like layout of the club have been confusing pissed up students for years now. The only difference this time is that the student is going to either be covered in fake blood or dressed up as Shrek (amongst other costumes), which will be hilarious if you ask us. So if you're inclined toward a guitar over a turntable, then you know where to go this Halloween in Sheffield.

Buzzbomb Halloween Special

Bringing the goth back into Halloween, this night at yellow arch promises to be a grunge-filled paradise for all of the purveyors of heavier music in the Steel City. Heading up the bill are Femur, for their album launch, with Dead Horse and Galloping Dick supporting. The gig is bound to spawn moshpits full of mutants, monsters and maniacs alike, and the event will run into the early hours with DJs playing grot n roll until late. A true Halloween event where you can avoid the glitz and glam that often surrounds the spooky season nowadays and just let loose.
