Halloween weekend is on the way, and we are going to do our best to keep you up on all the parties happening all over town.

Boomtown is a cool venue at the corner of Wyoming and Magnolia that Darren and I stopped at a few weekends ago. It's a great central El Paso venue with a hipster vibe that even us old folks really dug. This weekend, Boomtown and Head Up Promotions are are hosting a Halloween party with live music, art, and a screening of a Halloween classic, 'Halloween II'. at 8 p.m. There will be a live performance by Daniel Villasenor of the film score, something to add to the spooky air of the film.

Because it's a Halloween party, there will be a pumpkin carving contest and a costume contest, so work your magic and head to Boomtown this Friday night for a helluva scary good time.
