While there is a super-mega-abundant-plethora of Halloween options this weekend, we’re headed to The Smiling Moose in the South Side tonight to kick off the weekend. Not only is it the monthly Shake, Rattle and Roll ’50 & ’60s classic rock dance party with DJ Junior, it’s the 2nd annual Halloween costume party! We were costume shopping all afternoon, so we’re ready! There’s no cover and the costume contest is $5 to enter with cash prize!
DJ Junior is a staple at the Rockabilly Riot at Howler’s, The Rock and Roll Spookshow at The Thunderbird, and his own monthly show Shake, Rattle and Roll at the Smiling Moose (last Friday of every month). He plays nothing but classic ’45s from the 1950’s and ’60s, playing early rock and rockabilly records from Jerry Lee Lewis to Johnny Cash to Little Richard, James Brown and Bill Haley. It’s always a great time. Just grab a Pabst, roll up your cuffs and hit the dance floor!
