Zombie Night


Let's face it: You either love Halloween and have been putting together a costume since spring, or you despise Halloween and are trying to find ways to just be a shut in for the night. I'm here to tell you that if you are the former, there are a ton of events for you and your sexy costume all over town, including Monster Bash in the Gaslamp, the Heaven & Hell Music Festival at the Town & Country, and the Masquerade Ball at the Lafayette, to name just a few. But if you feel like this is just another Saturday night, legends Kris Kristofferson and John Prine are playing the San Diego Civic Theatre together, Gone Baby Gone will be at  the Ken Club, and Jake Shimabukuro closes this year's concerts at Humphreys. Please note, the No Knife show at the Casbah is sold out, and the Rocket From the Crypt show at Bar Pink was canceled -- though the Heartaches will still perform.
