The influx of Halloween parties is right around the corner. For now, there are plenty of show choices on Thursday, including the Raveonettes at the Belly Up, the XX at Soma (sold out), Less Than Jake and the Mad Caddies at House Of Blues and Grimes at Porter's Pub . On the electro/house side of things in San Diego, two shows with Porter Robinson, Zedd and Nick Thayer. Poseiden: The Back to Back Tour is from 8:30-11:30 p.m. (16+) at Petco Park and then the party continues at Voyeur for a sold-out 21+ show. Get more info via this link. At the Office, Le Spank welcomes Shane Baker vs. Kid Wonder (Boogie vs. House).

I’ll be DJing with Terryn S throughout the night and there’s no cover. Grab more details here.
