The Week in Stuff: Frighteningly Overdue Edition

Shock-tober comes to a chilling close this week with a ghoulish line up of spooky shows sure to fry your nerves and... scare... Look, let's just forget that I lost the thread of this meandering intro awhile ago and get right into the music.

10/28 - St. Lucia stops by the Glass House in Pomona for a night of ultra cool synth-pop.

10/28 - The Rural Alberta Advantage brings their brand of Canadian indie to The Observatory stage in Santa Ana on Tuesday night.

10/29 - Break out the eyeliner and fishnet stockings, Marilyn Manson stops by OC's The Observatory for a pre-Halloween bash. I've never been much of a fan but his new track, "Third Day of a Seven Day Binge" has definitely piqued my interest.

10/31 - Queens of the Stone Age close out the month with what promises to be one of the highlight concerts of the year in the southland, closing out their current touring cycle with a performance at the recently revamped Forum on Friday night. I'll be there providing coverage of what's sure to be a night to remember.

11/3 - Dark, dangerous and direct from Denmark, Iceage heads over to San Diego's Casbah next Monday night of raw, unapologetic punk. Iceage also has two shows scheduled for 11/1 and 11/2 in LA at the Echo for those further up north. Check out the band's video for the track "Forever" off the new album, "Plowing into the Field of Love."
