Teenage Halloween are a power pop band full of different individuals with one hopeful goal of creating questions about one’s role in queer oppression and creating fun and respectful show settings. Most songs feature topics of LGBTQIA+ empowerment and political revolt. With jangly guitars, shreddy leads, fuzzy bass and more, they create a full sound for the ears to interpret how it would like. For three years, the group has been ran and fronted by Luke Henderiks (vocals / guitar) + Brandon Hakim (saxophone) , with many different lineup changes and instrumentation, they have always functioned as the team behind booking, organizing and writing the music. The current lineup consists of Eli Frank (guitar) , Peter Gargano (drums) + Jane Lai (keys) with other collaborating artists at times. They are influenced by bands such as Big Star, Guided By Voices, Against Me! , AJJ, All Dogs, Bomb The Music Industry! , Elvis Costello & Heavenly. With members from NY + NJ, they still manage to get together and play as many DIY shows as possible.
