Stay & Play Social Club’s Boo Bash

@ Royal Oak Music Theatre

Stay and Play Social Club’s annual Boo Bash is going to be a good time. There are individual and group costume contests, and the prizes are a $400 league voucher for groups, and a $100 voucher for individuals. Tickets are $32, but that price includes cover, entertainment, and three alcoholic beverages. It’s a steal.

318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980,

The Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Party & Movie Night

@ HopCat Detroit

What’s this? What’s this? The HopCat will host an entire party devoted to Nightmare Before Christmas! Guests are encouraged to dress up as Jack, Sally, or whoever their favorite character from the cult phenomenon is. Tim Burton fanatics, rejoice. If your costume is good enough, you could be one of the lucky top three who receive a gift card. The event starts at 6 p.m., but the screening won’t start until 8 p.m. It’s only $4 to get in, so don’t skip it.

6 p.m.; 4265 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-769-8828;

@ Small’s

Covenfest is back again this year with Rob Zombie vs. Marilyn Manson, Nique Love Rhodes and the NLR Experience (as Missy Elliott), the Scrappers (as the Flying Burrito Brothers), Queens of Noise (Joan Jett/Runaways tribute), and School of Rock (as the Ramones). Covenfest is going to be a great time this year, and as you can see by that lineup, there’s something for everyone. The suggested donation to get in is $10, and all proceeds are going to Turning Point, a shelter for survivors of domestic violence.

8 p.m.; 10339 Conant, Hamtramck; 313-873-1117;

Creepy Cheapy IX

@ The Crofoot

It’s creepy, and it’s cheap. There will be free candy, a candy-eating contest, a costume contest, and a killer lineup. Performances include Ironsnake (as Judas Priest), Courtney and the Hurleys (as Dolly Parton), Shapes and Colors (as My Chemical Romance), Stikyfut (as Radiohead), and many more. If that isn’t your thing, there will also be all-night dancing on the patio (Erno the Inferno and Ryan Spencer as DJs), as well as vintage tiki lounge music in the cafe from Sister John Misty.

1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac; 248-858-9333;
