Happy Halloween(s)!

Death Star Pumpkin found @ Bloomington Area Music
As a kid, I thought it was pretty cool having just the one Halloween, but apparently adults get to have a bunch of Halloweens that all fit their schedules.

This year, All Hallow's Eve is on a Sunday and for us grown ups with Mon-Fri (9 to 5) type jobs that . . . doesn't quite work.

Thankfully, there are a ton of Halloween themed shows/dance parties/costume contests going on throughout the Sacramento area that you non-kids are bound to find something to do.

And to help you, I've put together a Halloween guide for you to help you make a decision!

Dance Party:
Fuck Fridays and Scion are presenting a two-floor Haunted House at the Townhouse Lounge. Downstairs DJ Shaun Slaughter will be spinning electro/house/dance music and Portland dance band STRENGTH will be performing live as well. Upstairs DJ Roger will be spinning and there will also be a special performance by San Francisco's Still Flyin'

Tickets are still available at Bows and Arrows in Midtown but not for long. Get yours now and soon because it guarantees entrance into the party.
