One of the more interesting things to happen at GBH this year is our strengthening relationship with Pitchfork. We've long had friends there (we used to share studio space with their creative director), but lately some fun ideas have started to emerge and take shape. Like this one—a GBH x Pitchfork collaboration that brought together Solemn Oath Brewery and Baroness for an incredible Halloween show at Thalia Hall. We called it OCT31.

Having never been much for costume parties and trick-or-treating myself, this was a perfect excuse to do something more my speed. Bonus for the night was getting the very last keg of SOB's Octöberface to share with the crowd.
