On Saturday, October 29, Sudan Archives brought her violin to NYC’s Boom Boom Room, where Lykke Li, Jeremy O. Harris, Yola Jimenez, and Gina Correll Aglietti threw a Halloween rager featuring a performance from the self-taught instrumentalist. Hours before, Sudan Archives prepared for the party inside the hotel. Here, makeup artist Tiffany Patton puts the finishing touches on her eye shadow.

The evening—which included a dinner at Standard Grill and lots of dancing before her performance—called for a high fashion grunge look, which Sudan Archives achieved with ISE boots and Helmut Lang jacket.
