Halloween may not be until next Friday, but Somerville is getting in the spooky spirit this weekend with several pre-holiday festivities. In addition to Halloween fun, there are a bunch of cool art events happening in the next few days. And don’t forget that the full event listings for this weekend and beyond can be found on our new calendar!
Projector Party: The Bring Your Own Beamer party this summer at Aeronaut Brewing was so successful that it’s back for fall. Check out cool visuals, share yours, sip brews and jam to DJs at the brewery on Friday night. Update: The Projector Party is sold out, but the good folks at Aeronaut have put up 25 tickets specifically for Beat readers. Claim them using the code THEBEAT. Thanks Aeronaut!
Tomes of Terror: Nevermore: Get in the spooky spirit with the Post-Meridian Radio Players as they perform some of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known work as adapted for radio. The shows, which start tonight and continue next week, feature live actors in front of microphones and live sound effects on stage.
Somerville Food Day Weekend: Celebrate Food Day at the Somerville Mobile Farmers Market on Saturday with live music, urban growing activities, information about composting, a recipe swap and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. The fun takes place from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. at the Mystic Housing Development.
The Armory of Horror: Get ready to get scared at the Arts at the Armory when it transforms into the Armory of Horror. Take a trip through the haunted maze–if you dare–on Saturday night (or take a lights-on tour on Sunday afternoon). If you can’t make it this weekend, the Armory of Horror continues next week and there’s even a special family day on November 1.
Nave Gallery Art Events: If you love books, head to the Nave Gallery Annex in Davis Square on Sunday at 3 p.m. for an artist talk about the current exhibit, Bibliophilia. And if music is more your thing, check out The Blue as Truth Telling: Scott Ainslie in Concert on Sunday at the Nave Gallery just outside of Teele Square. A community reception starts at 5 p.m. with the concert and discussion to follow at 6 p.m.
