Tonight in L.A. (October 31, 2012) - Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween.  The LA concert calendar gets some real treats on this night - like the LACMA Halloween Ball featuring a Stanley Kubrick Exhibition and the soundscapes of Daedelus and his Archimedes exhibition.  Wickedly ill is one apt way to describe that event.  

The same could be said for another location that Daedelus is familiar with - The Airliner and Low End Theory.  Karreim Riggins, Nastynasty, Daddy Kev, Nobody, Gaslamp Killer and Nocando all get down plus an very very special guest.  If you want to figure out who that is - you better be wearing a costume or be prepared to cough up a nice benjamin - because its a $100 cover for the costume-less.

Another Halloween party is taking place at The CenTRILL SAPC.  Its not really spelled like that - but with Trill Murray, Inspired Flight and Minnesota all performing at a special Halloween jam, it should be for this night.

As far as dance parties go though - I may be most excited for the sexy new disco of Disclosure at El Rey Theatre.  If you want hot sexy dance tunes - look no further than these boys from across the pond.

Elsewhere - I really like Dustbowl Revival at Virgil.  They will be having fun - no matter whether they're rocking a 5 piece or 10 piece or something in between (rumor has it there will be a healthy lot of them for Halloween).  The Mint hosts the well traveled Donna The Buffalo with support from The Makepeace Brothers, All Time Low rocks The House of Blues on Sunset, and local soulful funk crew House of Vibe All Stars hold things down for westsiders at Harvelles.
