You will constantly be reminded of your mortality as Halloween approaches. Why not do it to the tune of folk at Murder Ballads: A Tribute to Crimes of Passion? It will surely get you into the holiday spirits. Join Joel Jerome, Rachel Fannan, Old Testament, Spindrift and more bands as they spin yarn with songs about death, murder, and all around doom at The Echoplex. Tuesday, October 28.

Earlier this year Red Bull commissioned a number of artists to create murals throughout Los Angeles as part of their Latagráfica series. The tenth and final mural will be by Chicano artist, and founding member of Los Four, Frank Romero at Plaza de la Raza in Lincoln Heights. Be sure to RSVP for admission. Friday, October 24.

This is your chance to bust out your bodice.  The Halloween Mourning Tours  at Heritage Square Museum encourage guests to come in their best Victorian garb to view and participate in funeral processions and 19th Century mourning rituals.  Those Victorians – they knew how to throw a funeral.  Saturday and Sunday, October 25 and 26.
Dogs In Costume
Do dogs like being dressed up like TV characters or super heroes? Well, some owners seem to love dressing up their dogs, and this weekend finds canines being fitted for costume contests at the Hermon and Silver Lake dog parks. FYI: Cats hate dressing up for Halloween.
