UNFUN Emo Halloween /Christian McAlhaney/Deon Rexroat Members of Anberlin man the selections for a costumes-encouraged party at The Bends where the pair will spin nostalgic, emo, hardcore and punk from the 90s and early 2000s. No cover, and there's a best bad t-shirt contest, too. Anyone dressed like a scenester gets a free Anberlin t-shirt as well. (The Bends, St. Petersburg) INFO

Melody Artisans of the Crooked Thumb - Graveyard Songs Crooked Thumb's recurring songwriter's symposium rolls over and turns its gaze to the grave as it opens the mic for songsmiths who'd like to share songs about "graveyards." Fun times, but the brewery put it best: "Don't feel like answering your doorbell a hundred times? Join us for an evening of brand new original songs." (Crooked Thumb Brewery, Safety Harbor) INFO

Halloween Debauchery w/Hell On Earth/Michael Stillwell/Mark Crane/Tom Gold/Octavio Petrucelli A spaceship's worth of EBM and dance DJs take over Crowbar for a party that includes both a costume contest and bloody t-shirt contest. Sounds messy, and we like.(Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
