Sounds Like San Diego: October 28



    The fact that Halloween falls on a Monday means that somehow the "holiday" has expanded into a full week of costumed events for grown-ups. One of the big ones is the annual Boo's Cruise hosted by 91X. This year's Hornblower cruise will feature music by GroupLove and Grand Tarantula. Fortunately for the non-costumed set, there's plenty of music to be had where costumes aren't required, including the Donkeys, who will be performing with Cuckoo Chaos (who just returned from CMJ) and Bully at the Casbah, Lunar Maps at the Whistle Stop, and Amanda Palmer at the Birch North Park Theatre.
