Denton does Halloween celebrations

October 31, 2013

… with fun, costume contests and great live music.

Thursday, Oct. 31:

  • Halloween Party and Costume Contest at Sweetwater Grill & Tavern, 115 S. Elm St., with live  Beatles music by , well, the Savage Beatles, 9:30 p.m. – TheSavageBeatlesMidnight.

The Savage Beatles: Our first show with new bass player Chad Huffman! We’re gonna stomp! Mach Schau!! Halloween night like, a Thursday y’all. The Savage Beatles are a screamin’ good time. Heavy hitting beats to move your feets. Concentrating on the Rock’n’Roll sounds of the early Beatles. We do not pretend to be the Beatles, but are more of a fun, stomp, jump, and shout experience. We’ve got the Instruments but no wigs and suits please. We’re more of a Hamburg-era type group. Less Hits – More Punches!

  • Special Halloween Show at Banter Bistro, 219 W. Oak St., 8 p.m. (No Open Mic tonight.)
  • Babar + The Demigs + Savage and the Big Beat + Danny Rush and the DDs, Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial, 9 p.m. $5 cover.
  • Annual Halloween Party with Bone Doggie and the Hickory Street Hellraisers, The Abbey Underground, 101 W. Walnut St., 9:30 p.m. with the official release of their new EP “Kitchen Prose and Gutter Rhymes.” Introducing: Poppy Xander, and featuring Tippsy Cupps and the Pumpkin Patch Review Burlesque, with special guests Molotov Dogs.

It’s a good old fashioned Halloween house party!

North Texas Football vs. Rice | Apogee Stadium | 6:30PM
Alright, we’ve become pretty big fans of going to football games this year. Thanks to a better than decent team, a good coach and an incredible marching band, home games are now something we really look forward to. Right now we’ve got to win one more game to #Hit6 which means we get considered for an actual Bowl game. So get your Eagle Talon ready, wear green, black or a costume and let’s keep our 3-0 at home record by whipping Rice in this Thursday’s battle of the birds. GO MEAN GREEN!
Editor’s Note: OK, Mean Green Football in a Denton Jazz Chronicles post? I have to give a sentimental nod to the Rice Owls gridders and their Marching Owl Band (aka The MOB). My dad was a drum major for the Rice Band, and always stood by the Blue and Gray. Though I want the UNT Eagles to win, my heart pulls in the direction of that little ol’ Houston institution of higher learning.

Have fun, drink responsibly, enjoy dressing up as your favorite zombie, pirate, Steampunk lady, alien, super villain … whatever. Happy Halloween!halloween-horror-nights-scareactors
