So I wrote this Halloween event roundup ...

elephony halloweenyEvery year, some sucker gets swindled into writing a roundup of Halloween events happening around town.

For the past couple years, that special someone has been me. 

This year's Halloween roundup appeared in today's paper, and focused heavily on all the new Halloween happenings in and around the Station North Arts and Entertainment District.

Here's a link.

I'm talking about Gutter Magazine's Dead Celebrity Ball at the Metro Gallery, the Heroes and Villains costume contest at Windup Space, Grateful Dead tribute band Shakedown Suite's show at Joe Squared and the BOLT dance party at the Hexagon.

The best part? All the events I just mentioned are free. FMEB lives! ...

The piece also touches on Power Plant Live, Remington, Federal Hill, and of course, the granddaddy of Halloween spookery, Fells Point.

A bunch of these events are in their first year. I'm interested to see how they go.

If you have any you'd like to add that I didn't mention in the list, feel free.

Oh, and happy almost-Halloween, everybody!
