If you’re headed to Bay View this Saturday, check out glam-rockers Tigernite, who are having a Halloween-themed show at Club Garbaldi with Midwest Death Rattle, Sin Bad and DJ Freshluggage. In many ways this is a standard Halloween party with music and a costume contest, but then again, Tigernite is headlining so expect the unexpected.
Saturday at 9pm @ Club Garibaldi’s
…it’s time to get dressed in your best costume and kick it. Even if costumes aren’t a part of your plan, there’s plenty to do before the weather turns wicked…

Nightmare on Center Street
As it turns out, Riverwest is a good place to be on Halloween as four venues on Center Street (The Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts, Club Timbuktu, High Dive and Company Brewing) open their doors for performances by The Fatty Acids, Lorde Fred33, Awkward Terrible, Airo Kwil, Zed Kenzo and others for the second edition of the annual Nightmare on Center Street (festival ?); making it a nice one-block stop for a spooky spectacle. Company Brewing is also holding a special screening the 1915 silent film Alice in Wonderland scored by the DIY Chamber Music Presents.
Saturday at 9pm @ Center Street in Riverwest
Schoolboy Q + Joey Bada$$
Earlier this year, Schoolboy Q released his very good new album Blank Face LP. This weekend, his world tour hits Milwaukee in support of the record and he’ll be joined by Joey Bada$$ for a show at The Rave this Saturday. If you’re looking for a show you don’t need to feel the need for the obligatory costume, this is your best bet. Plus, could be the last best hip hop show in the area till 2017.
Saturday at 8pm @ The Rave
