Much like St. Patrick's Day and New Year's Eve, Halloween weekend promises long lines for drinks and toilets, people of all ages who don't get out much behaving badly, shitty parking spots and enough secondhand embarrassment to last you until Thanksgiving.

It's easy enough to skip all that, though. Tomorrow night, R Bar hosts the Black Crack Revue, a cosmic jazz ensemble headed by Rev. Dwight Frizzell. He describes the show as a "tantraliscious orgone-accumulating holographic sonic worm-holing hullabaloo."

Posted By on Fri, Oct 29, 2010 at 11:37 AM

Boo.
  • Boo.

How would you feel about getting baby carrots while you were out trick-or-treating? What if they were scary carrots?
