14th Annual (I Gotta) Rock Show

Thursday, October 4th 2018, 7:00 pm-11:00 pm

Thirsty Moose Taphouse
21 Congress St, Portsmouth NH

The annual tradition continues on Thursday, Oct. 4th, at 7 p.m. when the 14th annual (I Gotta) Rock! Show/PHP fundraiser returns to the stage of Thirsty Moose Taphouse – Portsmouth. The Rock Show is your first opportunity to grab this year’s Tee-shirt and hoodie designs, the much anticipated announcement of our 2018 Grand Marshal, kick-ass raffle prizes, and of course, music!

This year will feature performances by Kong Moon, 25 Cent Habit, and Sam Hill! We are so grateful for the continued support of all these musicians and businesses.

Thanks to you, we march.

A $5 donation will be requested at the door. New Hampshire’s biggest Halloween parade is brought to you by the people, for the people. The parade is NOT a city-sponsored event. It is staged by volunteers and funded solely by the community, primarily through grassroots events.


This year’s lineup includes:

Kong Moon
A local band ready to rock your little world, Kong Moon is the product of 4 guys who share the love for beer, whiskey, and rock and roll. Listen to them at

25 Cent Habit
What happens when four friends fuse tasty grooves, manic energy, and lyrics that make you want to sing out loud? You get rock ‘n roll the way it was meant to be. 25 Cent Habit is the real deal. 25 Cent Habit will make you move. Go stalk them on their Facebook Page

Sam Hill NH
Always a crowd favorite, we are already preparing our eardrums for the awesomeness that will be bestowed upon them. Sam Hill is a heavy metal band from New Hampshire that plays original compositions. They meld dark sci-fi themes with local lore and wrap it in a rhythmic presentation. They have been nominated for two regional awards for best new act and album and have been playing regionally for over 5 years. They recently released a new record called March to the Mountain.
