On this eve of Halloween, expect things to be relatively quiet as everyone saves their money and energy for Saturday. That's good news for music lovers, since you should have some plenty of elbow room on Friday and can dodge the usual weekend warriors. King Khan & BBQ are going to slay at Soda Bar, which is also presenting a show downtown at Moniker Warehouse with Knuckle Puck in the headlining slot. Your best bet, though, just might be Dani Bell & the Tarantist at the Balboa Bar. Matt Nathanson Casbah and 91X's Boos Cruise are both sold out, BTW.
