Sounds Like San Diego: October 31

Looking for original live music on Halloween? Look no further than Western Settings at Tower Bar

As I said yesterday, this was going to feel like a very long weekend if you didn't pace yourself. Today is Halloween, and there are themed events and parties for grown-ups all over town. But just so you can't say that I didn't, can I just say if you're looking for an actual live-music show tonight, head to Tower Bar because Western Settings are getting more and more attention with every amazing show and tour they play. In that same vein, the Merrow has a pretty face-melty show for you, too, if what you want is original music. But if you are looking for a party, Casbah is getting down with a Michael vs. Prince dance party, Soda Bar hosts its annual Spooktacular where local bands dress up and play covers of famous acts, and Space does a similar thing so you can hop back and forth between the two. Halloween comes but once a year and though we like to really stretch it out, tonight it ends, so enjoy it while you can. And can someone save me a fun-size Snickers?
