Halloween parties are taking place over two weekends this year—here's what to see and do this week. See more in next week's issue!
HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY
AVID throws one of the best Halloween shindigs of the season — and it's free! Portland's DJ Wicked will be spinning tunes, who has opened for Wu-Tang Clan, Eminem and Outkast. Dress in your best costumes for the photo booth (you know, pics or it didn't happen). If you work up an appetite while dancing the night away, the Parilla Grill Taco Truck will be there serving delicious tacos to wash down with specialty AVID ciders. 8pm-12:30am. AVID Cider Co., 550 SW Industrial Way, Suite 190, Bend. Free. Ages 21+.
DANCE OF THE DEAD
If you missed Worthy's Halloween party last year — well, you missed out. Don't let it happen again. It would be a sad, sad thing. Enjoy live performances by Lyrics Born, local DJs and more. This Day of the Dead-themed party comes complete with food carts, award-winning beer, themed drinks and of course... Central Oregon's biggest costume contest! Prizes include cash, trips and goodies. 8pm. Worthy Brewing, 495 NE Bellevue Dr., Bend. $20/GA, $30/VIP. Ages 21+.
Get freaky with live performances by LadyDice, Keez, The Clumzys, Chandler P and more. Come in costume to join in on the costume contest with prizes, raffle and a dance party following the show. 7pm-2am. Seven Nightclub, 1033 NW Bond St., Bend. $10/adv., $15/door.
HALLOWEEN W/ THE RITUAL
TRIBUTE TO THE BAND GHOST
If you're not familiar with Swedish heavy metal band Ghost, they play gothic metal while dressed rather eccentrically. Lead singer Tobias Forge has donned costumes resembling a demonic pope and, more recently, portrays the character "Cardinal Copia." Local band The Ritual will pay tribute to Ghost just in time for Halloween. 8:30pm. Hub City Bar & Grill, 2498 S. Highway 97, Suite E, Redmond.
HALLOWEEN DANCE PARTY
McMenamins always puts on a good party. Come dressed in costume to celebrate Halloween with the always-soulful Object Heavy — back for another year, playing rock-infused funk and blues. 9pm-midnight. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St., Bend. $10. Ages 21+.
VAMPYRES & VISIONS
HALLOWEEN FASHION SHOW
Local models will be creepin' down the catwalk in Gothic and Halloween-inspired fashion by Ara Star Designs, 'OH' Designs and the latest unmentionables from Tres Chic Lingerie. Enjoy a bellydancing performance by Amirah and a night of live music from DJ SuperNova and Gainon + Northern Lights. Stay for the prize giveaways! 8pm-2am. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St., Bend. $3. Ages 21+.
YES, NO, GOODBYE – HISTORY OF THE OUIJA BOARD
Old St. Francis History Pub hosts librarian, historian and author Nate Pederson, who will speak about the Oujia Board — a game that has sparked fear in some and a relief from mourning for others, all shrouded in mystery. Doors, 5:30pm, Show, 7pm. McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St., Bend. Free. All ages welcome.
MOTOS, MONSTERS & MUSIC
SPOOKY MOTO PRESENTS
Alternative garage rock. Crunchy guitar and edgy vocals drenched in reverb round out North by North's sound—imagine if Jack White started a death rock band with Nick Cave. 6-11pm. Spoken Moto, 310 SW Industrial Way, Bend. All ages.
ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
W/ LIVE SHADOW CAST
'Tis the season to do The Time Warp, again! A live shadow cast will be performed during the screening, so come dressed as your favorite character and be ready to shout all your favorite callbacks! 8-11pm. Midtown Ballroom, 51 NW Greenwood Ave., Bend. $15.
THE VILLAIN'S BALL
Help Seven celebrate 10 years of parties and debauchery with drinks, dancing and costumes! 9pm-2am. Seven Nightclub, 1033 NW Bond St., Bend.
