Join this gypsy-rock quartet as they return home for their annual Halloween performance, complete with elaborate costumes and stage decorations.

Thu 8 p.m.

Submitted by Lauren Mikus on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 10:11am

The only thing scarier than your uncle on the dance floor is a zombie. Show off your halloween costume and your Frankenstein moves while DJ Brian drops the party beats. Enter the costume contest and the raffle for your chance to win an overnight stay at the Hotel Boulderado, among other great prizes. Proceeds benefit There With Care, an organization assisting families and children facing critical illness. Thu 8 p.m.-midnight. 

Head for the Hills

Submitted by Jerilyn Forsythe on Wed, 10/23/2013 - 5:02pm

Past the acceptable age for trick-or-treating? Spend the holiday grooving to bluegrass instead. The Rocky Mountain Region certainly isn’t short on bluegrass bands, but Head for the Hills’ youthful and modern interpretation of the genre sets the Fort Collins-bred crew apart. The group released its latest album, Blue Ruin, earlier this fall. Thu 9 p.m.
