The Halloween season officially kicked off in the East Village last weekend when ERIK FOSS' FUSE GALLERY held its annual "Pumpkin Carving Bizarre" last Sunday where the freaks of the industry turned out in droves to put their artistic (dis)abilities to work in disfiguring a patch full of fresh squash. After several unsuccessful attempts to summon the spirit of the Great Pumpkin, the crew kept things moving at the bar while Public Image Limited's MARTIN ATKINS got busy on the wheels of steel with the OG jams. PEEP THE RECAP:
