This Weekend’s Halloween Fun

It’s Halloween weekend everyone. FishbowlLA will be out and about in our finest Gordon Gartrell and so should you… Not in Gordon Gartrell though. That’s our thing.

Hollywood Forever’s annual Dia De Los Muertos celebration looks pretty great this year. The theme, not surprisingly with the Mayan calendar apocalypse on everyone’s mind, is the pre-­‐Aztec roots of Dia De Los Muertos. On top of learning about the Mayan calendar and why we’re all doomed, there will be live music by Tribu, Very Be Careful and Ozomatili. Party goes from noon to midnight.

Meanwhile, the grandaddy of public radio parties, KCRW’s Masquerade Ball, is going off per usual at the Legendary Park Plaza Hotel. On top of performances by the Mexican Institute of Sound, who we’ve been dying to hear for years, and Z-Trip, we just got word that M-83 and the Sex Pistols legend John Lydon will also have DJ sets. We will definitely be there. If you happen to go and be dressed as Denise from The Cosby Show, flag us down so we can yell “DENISE” at you.

Have fun everyone!
