Some Enchanted Evening 

The places to spend your Halloween night listening to live music

Weathering Halloween as an adult is challenging. Do you still dress up? Do you use the holiday as an excuse to drink something out of character? It's all up to you, but note that the Inland Northwest's live music options are pretty hoppin' Friday night. We've grouped the shows into experiences you might want out of your evening. Many of these venues offer costume contests as well.So you want to go to a show where you'll...

GET SPRAYED WITH FAYGO

Juggalos never need an excuse to dress up, donning face paint and black, white and red clothing for every show. Expect the costumes for Friday's Tech N9ne performance to be more exceptional than usual. The Kansas City rapper was here in May, but his fan club always welcomes a return visit.

Tech N9ne feat. Stevie Stone, Krizz Kaliko, Knothead and Tyler Denbeigh, at Knitting Factory, $28, All-ages

STRAIN YOUR NECK HEADBANGING

British speed metal act Raven never used Aqua Net, but their sweaty, long locks certainly make them a hair metal band. These guys have been around for 40 years; they know how to put on one hell of a loud show.

Raven feat. Night Demon, Invasive, Morbid INC and Aardvark at the Hop!, $10, All-ages

EXPERIENCE LOCAL ROCK OVERLOAD

It's obviously impossible to experience local rock music overload, but in the case of the two shows happening at the Big Dipper and the Phat House, you may at least get overwhelmed. Buy tickets at one venue and you get in the door both places. On the lineup are local rock and psychedelic favorites.

Bodhi Drip, Blackwater Prophet, the Mother and Buffalo Jones at the Big Dipper; Moksha, Flying Mammals, B-Radicals and Good Ol' Phat Jam at Phat House; $5/$2 with costume, All-ages

DANCE LIKE A ZOMBIE

"Thriller" is the one Halloween song that never goes out of style. Expect the Michael Jackson favorite to play at least once at Swaxx on Friday night, as it's the theme of the entire event. Watch the video again and make sure you have the moves down pat.

Thriller Halloween Costume Party feat. DJ Freaky Fred, DJ X and DJ K-Phi at Swaxx, $10, 21+

HEAR THE DEVIL GET DEFEATED

The Charlie Daniels Band isn't playing Friday, but we couldn't leave them off the list: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is just too damn memorable, not to mention Halloween-themed. The country band plays Sunday, Nov. 2, and after a full day of rest on Saturday, you should be able to make the performance, still in the holiday spirit.

Charlie Daniels Band at Northern Quest Resort & Casino, $45-$65 ♦

These clearly are not the only acts playing Friday; flip the page for more terrifying music options.
