Oct. 30, 2014 — There are a lot of parties going down in the Phoenix metro for Halloween weekend, but none is looking to be as scary as Hellbound Halloween. Some of Phoenix’s best darkwave, industrial, and fetish promoters linked up to create a dark and spooky party at Club Palazzo, 710 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, that is themed after the iconic Hellraiser horror movies.

On Oct. 31, DJ Manchester, DJ NOIZ. FKR, Dark Mark, Angeltoxin, and more will be spinning from 9:30 p.m. until 4 a.m. There will also be multiple areas for fetish play, as well as a costume contest with a cash prize for the winner announced at midnight.

The cover is $10 and the event is 21 and up until 2 a.m., when it switches to 18 and up for the after hours. With all the amazing events coming up on Halloween it is hard to pinpoint the best one, but this bad boy is definitely a strong contender. The atmosphere will be dark, the music will be foreboding, the costumes will be outrageous, and it should be one hell of a scary time.

Wednesday, Oct. 29

Wednesday’s are a rough night to find something good to do, but thankfully the Phoenix metro comes equipped with an awesome music and arts scene that makes it easy to find something do on any night of the week. Kicking off at 7:30 p.m., Guantanamo Baywatch from Portland, Ore., will be playing at Tempe’s Yucca Tap Room, 29 W. Southern Ave., along with Oakland Calif,’s Pookie & the Poodles, one of Phoenix’s top bands in the The Thin Bloods, as well as Shovel and Paper Foxes. This awesome event is 21 and up and free.

Thursday, Oct. 30

Lawn Gnome Publishing 905, N. Fifth St., Phoenix, will be hosting the 8th Annual Halloween Haiku Deathmatch beginning at 8 p.m. The event is free and all ages, and that’s both for competing or spectating. Haiku Deathmatch has become a favored competition of many of Phoenix’s best slam poets so besides the incomparable Aaron Hopkins-Johnson who created the event are poets like The Klute, Joy Young, Rowie Shebela, and others of Phoenix’s elite should be making an appearance.

Friday, Oct. 31

Halloween is jam packed full of awesome events all over the Phoenix metro. Out in Mesa, Authority Zero’s Night Of The Living Dead will be taking place at the new Club Red, 1306 W. University Drive, Tempe. Besides local legends Authority Zero, local acts Mouse Powell, Black Mountain Moonshine,  Bear Ghost, The Bastard Sons, and more will be rocking out in the Eastern Valley. Authority Zero is obviously the headliner, but there is just no one way Mouse Powell is going to be outshined by anyone on a night like Halloween. So it should be a fun one out in Mesa town. The show is all ages, tickets are $18 and the show kicks off at 6 p.m.

KWSS Presents The Dead Can Dance will be starting off at 7 p.m. at Salty Senorita, 8011 W. Paradise Ln., Peoria. The show will feature performances by the Black Bottom Lighters and Pride Through Strife, as well as MJ Roads, Beef Vegan, and special guests. What’s best however is the 21 and up event is totally free.

Comedy On FIre 19: 2nd Annual Halloween Show is going on at The Firehouse Gallery 1015 N. First St. Phoenix. COF is one of the best spaces for comedy in the entire Phoenix metro, and the Halloween edition never fails to be one of the happeningest shows around. This year will feature a costume contest, a pumpkin carving contest, and raffle items from some of Roosevelt Row’s favorite stores. But there’s more including the amazing comedy stylings of Rodney Hood, Charlie Speez, Kevin Gassman, Adam Lark, and many more of Phoenix’s favorite comics. There will also be live art by Kryas Hester, and live music by Michael James. The show is all ages, and they ask for a $5 donation at the door.

Saturday, Nov. 1

Mujeres Del Sol and City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Latino Institute will be hosting Goddess Day: Dia De Las Diosas at Verde Park, 916 E. Van Buren St., Phoenix. The event will feature poetry, song, dance, and storytelling all in the vein of celebrating The Goddess. The event will run from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. and is both free and all ages.

About a month ago a bunch of Phoenix based punks lost their minds when the Ska Punk show was canceled. Like punks they did not take the effrontery to their ears lightly and they quickly organized a facebook page, which lead to an awareness concert. Nine of the valley’s best punk bands including Skull Drug, Inept Hero, Contradiktion Nomada, and more will all be tearing it up at Pub Rock Live, 8005 E. Roosevelt St., Scottsdale, kicking off at 7 p.m. The show is all ages and free with a canned good for donation.

Tuesday, Nov. 4

Comedy is good, pizza is good, so Comedy & Pizza should be a no brainer for an amazing Tuesday evening. Host Eli Kluger, who is one of the funniest stand ups in down in his own right has curated an awesome show featuring Leslie Barton, David Delgado, and Anthony Desamito, as well as a musical performance by Male Patern Radness. The show is all ages, free and is going on at Grand Avenue Pizza, 1031 NW Grand Ave., Phoenix.

Wednesday, Nov. 5

If all of the Halloween fun and laughs gets you in need of some not so bad harmonies and quality musicianship, the good news is The Bros. Landreth will be making an appearance at The Rhythm Room, 1019 E. Indian School Rd., Phoenix. They will hit the stage at 8 p.m. and tickets are $8 to $10. For more information, visit
