IT'S THE Most Wonderful Time of the Year at The Jinx, and the bar's offering plenty of wicked entertainment all weekend.
On Friday (Halloween proper), local musicians team up and transform into AC/DC, Ramones, Prince & The Revolution, Judas Priest, The White Stripes, Weezer, Misfits, and The Specials for the annual Cover Band Night.
I don’t care how many bad karaoke singers ruined “You Shook Me All Night Long” for you—Niche as AC/DU.S.A. is going to be one for the books.
If you’re more in the mood to hop on Halloween, make sure to swing by The Jinx to check out their immersive décor. Staff and friends of the bar work weeks in advance, creating handmade props to adorn the venue in the year’s carefully selected theme (2013’s Beetlejuice was a standout year—the air ducts, converted into sandworms, are still intact and worth checking out). 2014 is all about your favorite ‘70s slasher films.
And hey, if your costume’s less on the gory side, just stand near the blood pit during Saturday’s wrestling, and you’ll fit right in in no time.
Friday - doors at 8 p.m., $10. Saturday - doors at 10 p.m., $10.
