Happy (Not-Quite) Halloween Weekend at Beauty Ballroom

Last Halloween I tore my panty hose, narrowly escaped being vomited on by a Wilfred, and lost not one but two of my plastic swords. Needless to say I ended my Hallows Eve weekend exhausted, inebriated, and frustrated with the clusterfuck that is downtown Austin.

For those of you looking to avoid the catcalling, long walks in costume shoes that are clearly just for show, and overall scene that is dirty sixth then have I got some shows for you.

Head over to Riverside and let Beauty Ballroom start off your weekend on Thursday 10/25 with The Couch, Smoke and Feathers, Zlam Dunk, and Whitman.

The Couch will be releasing their single Oh Libby and even provided a teaser video that features their drummer, Jud Johnson, busting a move.

Smoke and Feathers is not all smoke and feathers when it comes to music. These guys can hold their own even when they opened for Black Taxi a few weeks ago I was left wanting more from these guys. Meanwhile, Zlam Dunk, will be releasing their LP Balcones which on first listen definitely sports a maturity and danceability to it that makes excited to see their live show. Last but not least pop-punk band Whitman will rile you up for the rest of the evening. You can catch all of these bands for the LOW LOW price of just $5 or you can enter to win tickets by liking the event on do512.

Beauty Ballroom really gets wild this Saturday during the White Ghost Shivers 2012 Apocaliptico Dia De Los Muertos Halloween Ball. This is Beauty Ballroom’s 9th annual Halloween Ball that will feature seven piece show-stoppers White Ghost Shivers decked in their Halloween best.

My favorite pack of musical bumble bees, Minor Mishap Marching Band will be there to make you jump and dance out of your mummy costume. And Clyde & Clem’s Whiskey Business will warm you up for an evening filled with ghosts, ghouls, and awesome tunes.

Additionally the End of Days Market Square will be featuring local artists and shops, vintage clothing, zombie art prints, hand crafted jewelry, a photo booth, and calavera face painting.

This and much more can be found at Beauty Ballroom on Saturday October 27th.  So remember kids, skip the headache that is downtown and head on over the Beauty Ballroom to find all you need for your Halloween.
