Otto Helmuth with Ancient Warfare and the Swells at the Green Lantern
Thurs Oct 25
In a week full of Halloween and cover-based events, take this opportunity to see some solid acts from around town.
HalloWeezer III at Buster’s
Friday Oct 26 8pm 18+ $5
This is the third HalloWeezer event in Lexington in as many years. I can’t say I thought they would keep going this long, but there’s apparently an audience for it. Come out for an evening of all your favorite sweater-unraveling Weezer songs.
Beaux Arts Fall Ball
Sat Oct 27 9pm 18+ $22 adv / $25 dos
Lexington’s bi-annual drunken party returns this fall. There’s no big names this year, but that won’t stop hundreds of people from flocking to the party.
Bright Light Social Hour at Cosmic Charlie’s
Sat Oct 27 10pm 18+ $10/$12
From the looks of this live video, BLSH are a blend of classic rock, garage rock and a big of 60 soul. Sounds like the makings for a great show!
March Madness Marching Band presents: Science Fiction – Double Feature at Centerpoint
Sun Oct 28, 7-8pm
I don’t know much more about this event than what you can probably gather from the title: it’s an hour of sci-fi and halloween music from Lexington’s premiere (only) community marching band.
Rebel Riot Revue Presents All Hallows Tease at Cosmic Charlie’s
Sunday Oct 10pm 28 18+ $10
Shemale Fiesta performing Cake’s “Fashion Nugget” at Cosmic Charlie’s
Monday Oct 29 10pm 18+ $5
Lexington’s goofy party band Shemale Fiesta has chosen a great band to cover this year. They’re doing the entirety of Cake’s Fashion Nugget in their funky, glammy style.
Funk-o-Ween Eve: Lexington Tribute to Funkadelic at Cosmic Charlie’s
Tuesday Oct 30 10pm 18+ $10
I’ve never caught on the of Lexington’s many Funkadelic tributes so I’m not sure who plays in it or how good they are, but you could do a lot worse than spend your Halloween-eve watching a tribute to one of the best live bands of all time.
Come As You Aren’t – Hall and Oates and T. Rex tributes at Cosmic Charlie’s
Wednesday Oct 31 10pm 18+ $10
Sadly this year I’m unaffiliated with Come As You Aren’t. But even without my skilled guidance, they put on a great show this year. They’ve pulled together members of Idiot Glee, Matt Duncan Band, Oh My Me and a ton more to do these cover sets this year.
