If you want to dress up like a dead person and go see live music, you've got a lot of options over the next few days.

Halloween isn't till next Tuesday, which gives you a whole weekend (and then some) to wear something even weirder than you usually do when you head out to the clubs. Here are some places where you can make a spooktacle of yourself while dancing, rocking out, or otherwise musicking in public. Boo.
