Just the reports of the Babyshambles surprise Halloween party in London over the weekend are already more entertaining than any Halloween party you probably went to over the weekend. With Pete Doherty and Babyshambles performing in a tiny flat in Whitechapel (the setting of The Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist, just to give you a frame of reference). Doherty was wearing a black cat mask, smoking a cigarette, and immediately launched into a cover of The Strokes' "The Modern Age." Other covers included the Libertines' "Never Never" and "I Get Along" and Oasis' "Cigarettes and Alcohol" (the latter two performed by Doherty bandmate Mik Whitnall).
Check out the video of the concert. If all Halloween parties were like this, maybe I wouldn't be sick of Halloween.
