Halloween Cheapage


From the "Better-late-than-never Dept", here's some cheap Halloween stuff in some kind of order. I didn't do my whole spiel on each, because I was havng a good time over the weekend...

Also: You could check BostonUSA's page with various Halloween things. Heck, you might want to find pumpkin patches in Eastern MA.

Halloween Bike Ride 2007
Meet at Green Street T Station, 150 Green St, Jamaica Plain

Imagine the type of fun-loving, free-spirit types that would ride all around town in costume. It sounds like they get into a bunch of shenanigans along the way, and I think it would be great to join them. You don't have to wear a costume or decorate your bike, but you should. The ride starts around 8:30 and goes about 20 miles at an easy pace. The route is a secret, but last year pedaled through Coolidge Corner, Harvard Sq, Central Sq, Kenmore Sq, Allston, and back to JP.

Helmets and lights are encouraged.

WED 10/31

The Luxury as Def Leppard (11:30pm), The Motion Sick as Poison (10:40pm), Sidewalk Driver as Ziggy Stardust & Spiders From Mars (9:50pm), Red Red Rockit as Jimi Hendrix Experience (9pm)
at TT the Bear's Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge(Central Sq)
$8 w/ costumes, $10 without

Maybe I should dress up as Scrooge on Halloween, because I've had a hard time getting into the spirit even when I was a kid. Of all the Halloween-themed rock shows (bands doing a set of songs by famous bands), I picked this one because it was the cheapest -- if you wear a costume. (Be creative and save a few bucks, or channel that time when you trick-or-treated without a costume when you were too old.) The bands are rather good, and they made some good material choices.

WED 10/31

Joe Carson as Jeff Buckley (11:45pm), Girls Guns and Glory as Ryan Adams (11pm), Cassavettes as Neil Young (10:20pm), 28 Degrees Taurus as The Velvet Underground (9:35pm), The Main Drag as Elliott Smith (9pm)
at Hennessy's Upstairs, 25 Union St, Boston (near Faniuel Hall)

I probably would've written about this one had I seen in it time. There will be a costume contest too.
