I have posted about this before, but as I said then - this is possibly the most exciting event I have heard of this year! Legendary Director (and Composer) John Carpenter the man behind films like: Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, Escape from New York, Big Trouble in Little China and They Live amongst others. And yea, he pretty much created all the iconic sounds for his films - is playing
a two gigs at The Troxy in London this Halloween! And will be performing his film soundtracks and new compositions.

John Carpenter is most well known for his films like the great Escape from New York, The Thing, Assault on Precinct 13, They Live, The Fog, Halloween and Starman amongst many others. But not only does John Carpenter create great tension fraught tales but he composes the unique electro sound for his films, bringing a unique and engaging ambience to his films. And spawning some of the most recognisable film music from the last 30 years.
