HAUNTING—How do you feel about peeing your pants? For those that don't mind a little fright-induced leakage, FrightTown is an annual must. With tons of spooks, three hugely elaborate walkthroughs, and truckloads of gore, it's a Halloween screamfest. Baron Von Goolo's Museum of Horrors is always a delight (and scary as eff), plus there's a new HP Lovecraft-themed haunted attraction! CF
Memorial Coliseum, 300 Winning Way, Fri-Sat 7-11 pm, Sun 7-10 pm, through Nov 1, $20, see frighttown.com for complete schedule
MUSIC—God bless the Pet Shop Boys. From "Surburbia" to "Left to My Own Devices" to "Love Comes Quickly" to "It's a Sin" to "Domino Dancing" to a goddamn track they share with Elvis Presley and Willie Nelson ("Always on My Mind"), Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have been entirely awesome since—good god—1981. Shit, I forgot about "West End Girls"! That one's awesome too! EH
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, 7:30 pm, $42.50-107, all ages
