Weekend Round-Up: All Hallow's Gold Style



Happy Halloween! I want to know everyone's costume plans. Contrary to the artist's rendering at left, music listings editor Adam Gold alleges he'll be dressing up as Fred Durst — Sharpie'd chin-strap and all. Cap'n Haruch's boy is going as Bob the Builder, which totally screws up my plans. I can't be the other Bob the Builder. If you can guess who I've decided to dress as based on the items I've purchased for my costume, I'll give you ... let's see ... the unopened Katy Perry album, the unopened Usher album and the unopened Michael Franti album that are currently sitting on my desk. OK, the items I've already bought include: false buckteeth + adhesive, temporary black hair coloring spray, a studded arm band and a studded belt.

Needless to say, there are plenty of viable good-times options for this weekend. I penned a little round-up of Halloween events that's coupled with Jim Ridley's round-up of haunted houses. Go there to see all kinds of seasonal shenanigans that are transpiring all weekend — from the Black Sabbath tribute night at The 5 Spot to the Halloweast Pub Crawl in 5 Points to Cheekwood's Dia de Los Muertos Festival to Third Man's Devil's Night and more. We'll also see performances from Clem Snide, Girl Talk, Ying Yang Twins, Dark Star Orchestra and Hermit Thrushes this weekend. No shortage of rock. Take a gander after the jump to see the listings, compiled by Adam Gold and organized by Steve Haruch. As always, let us know what we missed and have yourselves a good weekend.
