If I could Kyle Reese/Terminator-Skynet send myself back in time to tell dumb teenage me anything, I'd probably avoid mentioning the hellscape of the last election cycle and just make myself learn how to ride a skateboard and have fun while my body is still supple and quick to heal. Moms and dads: Don't let your babies be like bitter old me. Take your young aspiring cube-gleamers at 3 p.m. to RampArt's fourth annual Shredfest, where DJ Goldilocks and local bands Miteazwell and Not Ewe will rock and bounce the indoor skatepark while fire dancers dance, food is plentiful, and costumes are encouraged. It's free and family friendly with trick competitions galore.
At 8 p.m. at Siren's Song, Invisible Mans will be bringing a beautiful, plangent, and Wilco-esque sound from their native New Orleans for all of you dark Americana fans to swoon over. Jazz-rock duo Indigenous Gentlemen and ragtime group Back to the Hill open (price TBA).
The Alibi is hosting a Halloween version of their punk/new wave DJ night RadioClash with DJs Blancatron and Zero One spinning dance beats over power chords at 11 p.m. ($2).
