Halloween The Heavy Metal Horror Show

Sat., Oct. 26, 6 p.m.
Harpos 14238 Harper Ave, Detroit Greater Detroit Area

Buy from Ticketmaster$20


One of Detroit’s most storied music venues is getting in on the Halloween spirit with a 36th-anniversary celebratory performance by Halloween the band, as well as some special guests. Formed in 1982, old-school heavy-metal outfit Halloween could not be a better fit for the witching season. Take 2012’s Terrortory for example, which finds founding vocalist Brian Thomas screaming about traipsing through blood, hands around throats, dead kids, and the afterlife. Of course, all of this follows suit with Halloween’s bag of tricks. The all-ages scary costume-preferred headbanging bash will also host performances by Headrush, Casting Shadowz, and 86 Noodles.

Dead Again's 7th Annual Halloween Bash

,
Few bands have as dedicated a following as the Grateful Dead (perhaps rivaled only by Taylor Swift’s “Swifties.”) The band that has become synonymous with improvisational jams, those tripped-out little dancing bears, and all the good drugs, Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead’s legacy lives on thanks to the band’s loyal “dead heads” and thanks to Michigan’s premier Grateful Dead tribute band, Dead Again, which is keeping with its Halloween tradition at the Magic Bag seven years running with a three-hour set. The seven-piece band is led by Brian Avigne, who works to capture Garcia’s vocal and guitar essence, and together they span everything from the Dead’s classic psychedelia to the synthesized later years. 248-544-1991;
