ROCK THE CARNIVALE: Celebrate Halloween with the band also known as a burrito, Oso Closo, as they help 88.7 KTCU's The Good Show throw a bash complete with costume contest, creepy film screening (1932's Freaks) and chance to remedy something as truly scary as hunger with the Fort Worth Burrito Project. The serendipitously burrito-flavored magic, deemed Nightmare on 6th Street, all goes down at Lola's Sixth. Movie starts at 7PM.
PUP IN TOW: The Unleashed Indoor Dog Park on Samuell Blvd. plays host to your little ones, be them canine or human, with the Halloween Unleashed Festival. A haunted house, petting zoo, and pumpkin carving contest should make for traditional fun for all; the doggies are even included at the face painting booth, with fur painting offered as well. 2PM-8PM.
SURPRISE ENDING: It doesn't have to be Old Hallows Eve for Austin's Ghostland Observatory to put on a ghoulishly fabulous show, but the coincidence of their Palladium date is the ticket if you're up for a little goth-punk fun. The duo's specialty is electro-pop, but expect some diversions on this night of nights. 9PM.
WOODSY TUNE: We can imagine only one place better than a drizzly patio at Smoke to hear Glen Farris play his hypnotic folk songs: the woods in the daytime. La Reunion TX improves on that idea with some purpose at the site of its future artists residency program. More information and essential RSVP instructions here. 3-4:30PM.
