Baltimore Halloween parties continue

Halloween costumes did not disappoint this weekend. I saw a zombie Qaddafi and an Utz Girl wearing a motorcycle helmet as hairdo, which justifiably won $50 bucks for best costume at Windup Space's party.

Sadly, someone in Baltimore did not do the costume that seemed ubiquitous in Brooklyn: his and hers Beetlejuice masks.

But maybe that'll change tonight. Halloween in Baltimore doesn't seem to be over:

The Ottobar's downstairs floor will be turned into a haunted house. At the back bar, there will be a Halloween party with games, costume contests and someone named King Gilbert spinning "spooky tunes." Hopefully, that will include that Cyndi Lauper song from "The Goonies." The upstairs is hosting a special Halloween edition of Metal Monday. Starts at 8 p.m.

Of course, already ideally suited for Halloween is Sidebar, which has a show featuring the aptly named Bag of Humans, San Diego's crunk band Reason to Rebel, Ghouls Night Out and Stone Demise. 9 p.m.

Golden West has a Halloween-themed Taxlo. The drummer for Maryland's post-rock Trans Am, Sebastian Thomson, will be performing live as Publicist. Chaing Gang of 1974, DJ Chris Devlin as well as the regular Taxlo DJs, Simon Phoenix, Emily Rabbit will also be around. 10 p.m. $7.

And, for a campy Halloween, go to the American Film Institute Theater in Silver Spring for a three-picture show of Vincent Price movies, including the cheesy classic "The Tingler." Shows start at 5 p.m.

FindLocal has other Halloween events.
