With Halloween falling on a weekend, there are an almost overwhelming number of things happening. If the River Market is your ticket, seven clubs — Deep, Flying Saucer, Gusano’s, Revolution, Sticky Fingerz, Underground Pub, Willy D’s — offer the opportunity to buy a wristband that allows entry to each. That includes local party band Tragikly White at Revolution, rising Fayetteville rocker Benjamin Del Shreve at Revolution, 9 p.m., and all sorts of DJs and costume contests.
Down the street, the Peabody hosts the “Boo Bash Rivertop Party” with a DJ, a light show and a costume contest with a $1,000 prize, 8 p.m., $10.
At West End, perhaps Arkansas’s favorite cover band, the Gettys, performs, 9 p.m., $5.
Party DJ Chucky P hosts a get-down at Cajun’s, where there’s a $500 costume prize, 9 p.m., $5.
At Restaurant 1620, local jazz-funk stalwarts Rodney Block and the Real Music Lovers team with DJ Swift for a Halloween Masquerade, 9 p.m., $15-$20.
The local all-M.D. classic rock cover band the B-Flats plays the hits at the Afterthought, 8:30 p.m., $7.
At Cornerstone, the Argenta Community Development Corporation hosts a party with a costume contest and live music by First Impressions, 7 p.m., $10-$25.
