If you don’t have plans yet, or if you have been invited to a party but you’re looking for an excuse to politely decline (I understand), here are some pre-halloween music happenings going on this Saturday.
Harvest Moon Festival at 89 North
If you do not want to be pressured to wear a costume but you do want to listen to Neil Young music and drink beer all night, this is the event for you. Leah Kay, the Brother Pluckers, Easy Chief, and the “Harvest Moon All Stars” will be crooning out Neil Young covers that will have you feeling sentimental and vaguely melancholy in no time.
Pumpkin Palooza followed by a Halloween Party at Bobbique
From 1 to 6pm, Bobbique is serving up a ton of the season’s best pumpkin craft beers, rimmed with your choice cinnamon and vanilla bean sugar, apple crumb or caramel. Stick around for the Halloween party starting at 9:30 and featuring live acoustic classic rock songs from Joseph Felicetta and his crew. Prizes for best costume and a special prize for the best couple dressed as either the Obamas or the Romneys.
Halloween Party with Jackknife Stiletto at Bartini Bar
This one might be more rock show than party; however there is free food and yes, they have a costume contest. The Pink Flamingos, Walking Sideways, and all-girl rockers Jackknife Stiletto will be performing. $5 cover.
