One of the best things about Halloween is the opportunity to pretend to be someone (or something) else. When we play new roles — aside from it just being fun — we are able to release stress, practice creativity and even expand our capacities for empathy (in a light-hearted kind of way). For the second year in a row, Paper Tiger is throwing a Halloween bash that truly celebrates the act of becoming something else for a night. Their multi-faceted Night of the Creeps II features a costume contest, artwork by 10-plus local artists (Angela Fox, Regina Morales and Inés Estrada among them), and a massive live music lineup. But, don’t just expect to catch your favorite local bands doing their typical thing. This unique show sees each band dress up as, and play the music of, a band of their choosing. There are plenty of acts to look forward to, including The Grasshopper Lies Heavy as Local H, Flower Jesus Quintet as The Velvet Underground, The Bolos as Devo, Sailor Poon as The Cramps and Cannibal Bitch as Butthole Surfers.
