Kristen's Concert Picks: Special Edition: Rockin' Halloween 2010

Halloween weekend is upon us, and no other city celebrates this wonderful holiday of spooks, frights, and delights like Athens does! Looking for a place to rock your favorite Halloween costume? Whether bands or dance parties are your thing, for this ghoulish holiday, I've got you covered!

Tonight, OCT 29TH, Athens has quite a few exciting choices for us...

* The Next to Last Festival is an all day affair starting at 4:30 PM at New Earth Music Hall and featuring the awesome rappers Deaf Judges!

* One of our favorites from Athfest, The Shut-Ups, will be spreading the musical love at the Caledonia Lounge after 10 PM. How exciting!

* If you want to get your dance on, 40 Watt's the place to be tonight! DJs Twin Powers, Grave RobberS, Z-Dog, and Feral Youth will be spinning their tunes from 10 PM onward for this year's Halloween Dance Party. I can't wait for this!

Then on Halloween Eve, OCT 30TH, we've got celebrations galore!

* The Next to Last Festival continues into Halloween Eve with one of the best party-makers in Athens, Reptar! The lineup of bands will begin at 2:30 PM at New Earth Music Hall, and they're going to rock it all day.

* The biggest party of the night is definitely going to be the Wild Rumpus Parade through downtown! Starting at 9 PM at the corner of Clayton St. and Pulaski St., this parade is guaranteed to be full of ridiculousness. And the night won't stop there...

* ... because once the parade ends, the after party begins! And it's sure to be tons of fun with the Orkids, Kite to the Moon, and DJ Mahogany all rockin' Little Kings Shuffle Club. This is going to be AMAZING!

Now, since HALLOWEEN is on a Sunday this year, it's going to be a little quieter than usual, but don't fret!

* DJ Mahogany will keep the party going at Farm 255 starting at 7 PM on the holiday itself!

WHEEE, I'm so excited! Today's also my birthday, so this weekend's going to be extra special for me, but I just can't wait to see all of you taking over the town Halloween-style too! Catch you dressed in your spooktacular best, my friends. :)
