Got a ghastly over-the-top Halloween costume that's just begging to be worn before the big party weekend? Acropolis Records gets the festivities started early this season with their 7th Annual Rocktober Costume Concert at the House of Blues on Tuesday night. Brush out that wig and get those appendages glued on just right—Halloween deserves more than just one night of wicked celebrating. In the Main Hall, rock out to such "spooky" bands as My Own Ghost, The Resurrectionists, Sons of Guns, Faceless Angels and more—then, on the Rose Terrace Patio (re-dubbed the EDM Patio), get down to DJs Black Magic, Bad Birdy, NuModern, PUMA, and, of course, many more. The night crescendos in a costume contest—we just hope your getup includes dancing shoes.
