Friday 10/26

Listen to the moody goth act The xx play songs from their latest critically acclaimed album, Coexist, at the Loews Paradise Theater. [The Bowery Presents]

Into Tim Burton? Into burlesque? Then catch the Tim Burton Burlesque show at Bar Matchless featuring performers Vada James, Vanil LaFrappe and more dressing up (and taking off their clothes) as characters like Edward Scissorhands, The Joker, and more. [Flavorpill]

See Grammy-award winning jazz singer and bassist Esperanza Spalding and her 12-piece backing band play The Radio Music Society. [The Bowery Presents]

What the heck is a "!Colonial Seed!"?  It's a "crazy night" of performance art over at Grace Exhibition Space (840 Broadway, Brooklyn), that's what. A donation of $10 gets you a front-row seat for tonight's (October 26) show with Rhys Rodgers, John G. Boehme, 2shea, Mathew Silver  and -- all the way from Estonia -- The Non Grata Group. [GES]

Who you gonna call? Minions of Gozer! Catch these Ghostbusters fanatics as they perform á la Rocky Horror alongside a screening of the film at the IFC Theater [IFC]

Gayletter continues their Interracial party series with a costumed shindig at Bedlam. Obama/Romney couples are almost a guarantee. [Gayletter

Saturday 10/27

If you like cute dogs in cute costumes (who doesn't?) then don't miss Howl-A-Ween costume party and contest for doggies at the McCarren Park Dog Run. [Greenpointers]

You know you're a slave to the rhythm, so go hear Grace Jones sing at Roseland Ballroom. [Voice Places]

Performance art collective FCKNLZ will be re-creating early '90s club kid appearances on episodes of Donhaue and Geraldo at the Museum of Art and Design. Watch these and then head over -- this is going to be awesome. [Time Out]

Lucent Encounter, a show by the performance troupe Lucent Dossier that has been described as being "a darker Cirque du Soleil," at the Liberty Theater. The show, which includes a DJ set, bills itself as an interactive that changes each night. [LibertyTheater]

See a screening at the Museum of the Moving Image of Alfred Hitchcock's classic psychological thriller The Birds starring Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor and a bunch of really pissed off birds. [Time Out]

NYC's Storefront for Art & Architecture is hosting their "Critical Halloween" party/benefit tonight at a cool new venue, The Autumn Bowl, in Greenpoint (see pics here). There will be music by DJ N-Ron, Ron Santos and "The Usual Band" plus an open bar and costume competition.  Tickets are $40 for students and $100 for "everybody else" and you can get one HERE. On the 26th, Four Tet and Jamie xx are playing the same venue and on October 31st, it's Andrew W. K., Ice Balloons and a Creep DJ set.

The Suzanne Geiss Company (76 Grand Street) opens an exhibition of new works by the New York-based artist Ryan Johnson called "Self Storage" tonight, October 27th, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.. It's up until December 15.

We should have mentioned this the other day when we picked "Jah No Partial" as our Music Video of the Day but, hey, we forgot. So sue us.  Anyway, the incredible Major Lazer (a.k.a. Diplo and his insane hype man and dancers -- Switch doesn't tour) plays tonight at Terminal 5 (610 West 56th Street) with Pictureplane and Brenmar. [Terminal 5]

Before vampires were sparkly, romancin' dudes (looking at you, Edward Cullen) there were The Lost Boys. Catch this 1980's classic starring the Coreys and Kiefer Sutherland at Nitehawk Cinema. Don't forget your fangs! [via Flavorpill]

Or, for an even older vampire tale, check out the first film featuring the evil count, when Nosferatu also plays at Nitehawk Cinema [Nitehawk] 

Sunday 10/28

Interested in seeing a movie about killer trees, killer clowns, killer closets? 80s classic Poltergeist has all that and more (spooky ghosts!). Catch a screening of the movie at the Museum of the Moving Image on Sunday. [Time Out]

Folk artist and ostrich-egg chef Devendra Banhart is opening for NYC No Wave legends Swans at The Bowery Ballroom on the band's first tour in over a decade.  [The Bowery Presents

Take a candle-lit tour of the Merchant's House Museum and be prepared to possibly get spooked by former inhabitants of the 19th century home. [Time Out]

Head to the old Pickle District (Orchard Street, who knew?) for the Lower East Side Pickle Day street fair where you can sample different - you guessed it - pickles. [Time Out]

If you're in for a scream, check out Rooftop Films' Indie Horror movie marathon at the Brooklyn Lyceum. Flicks include the slasher-comedy Murder Party, Saturday Morning Massacre, and a bunch of terrifying and suspenseful shorts. Not to mention there will be drinks, food, and music! [via Rooftop Films
