What to do this weekend: Halloweeeen

Our weekly suggestions of Austin- and Texas-centric music, by no means exhaustive or complete. For full listings visit http://do512.com/. Mind where you step in the vomit-filled gutters downtown this Halloween weekend.

3rd Annual Halloween Party featuring The Mammoths (as Black Sabbath), The Rare Birds (as Neil Young), Transit Method (as Jane’s Addiction), Phaseur (as Ween), Coattails (as Marilyn Manson) and Shapescenes (as Interpol). I fucking love it when bands dress up as other bands and do covers. Best part of Halloween, every year. The Gatsby, 8:00pm, FREE


Roky Erickson

Third Annual Roky Erickson’s Celebration of a Family Curse. Sounds legit. Live recording of Roky Erickson performing “Evil One” with The Hounds of Baskerville, plus music from Jesse Vain, Dark Palaces, The Tennessee Stiffs and Royal Velvetee. Wolfsheild Ranch (7300 Cooper Ln), 4:00pm

For the classy SmackMadness readers, the Halloween Show with Miss Lavelle White and Jackie Venson. Costume contest included. Antone’s, 5:00pm, $5 at the door

Sunday, 10/30:

EPolkapocalypse with the Fabulous Polkasonics, Polish Pete & The Polka? I Hardly Know Her Band, Los Texamaniacs, and Brave Combo. I’m not saying I’ll 100% definitely be at this party, but I will 100% definitely be at this party. The Elisabet Ney Museum, 12:00pm, FREE
