atlanta-oakland-cemeteryThe weekend is here! Want to spend your Friday planning what you’re going to do for the weekend? Didn’t think so! We put together a list of events going on this weekend! Check ‘em out!

Friday, October 18 – Oakland Halloween Tour @ Historic Oakland Cemetery

Historic Oakland Cemetery receives many visitors each day, but only at Halloween do the gates stay open after dark. Join us this year and hear first-hand accounts about our city’s past, narrated by a host of Oakland’s eternal “residents.” You’ll also see gorgeous candlelit mausoleums in this one-of-a-kind annual tradition. Bring a flashlight and wear comfortable walking shoes. There will be beer, wine, and soft drinks for sale, and browse Oakland’s Museum Shop for unique finds. Hope you got tickets because this one is SOLD OUT!

Friday, October 18 – White Denim @ The Rock & Roll Hotel

The Austin, TX four-piece is no stranger to mixing crunchy punk energy, scorched psychedelia, Southern rock and knotty funk, but “Corsicana Lemonade,” the group’s fifth studio album, naturally covers so many bases that it plays like the greatest lost mixtape you could find on your dashboard during a hot summer afternoon. And now, with the support of leading publications like the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and Relix, as well as adoring crowds from Bonnaroo to their sold-out headlining tours, White Denim has fully arrived with a record to claim their own spot in America’s great rock lineage.

Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $15.

Friday, October 18 – Right On Band @ The State Theatre

The Right On Band is not your average 70’s tribute show, the group has truly earned the title “The World’s Greatest 70’s Show Band.” A ten-piece band with a full horn section, the Right On Band has been keeping the 70’s alive for 15 years. They have performed all over the world, with notable performances such as President Obama’s Inaugural Ball and opening for acts like KC & The Sunshine Band, The Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, The Commodores and The Village People.

Saturday, October 19 – Lucius and Hey Marseilles @ The Earl

Lucius is a triple-threat of vocal harmonies, infectious hooks, and dance-inducing percussion. Pair those traits with the band’s irresistible live show and it’s easy to see why NPR Music calls Lucius “a fabulous band playing such infectious pop songs” and Paste hails the group as “blissful.”

Doors open at 9pm. Tickets are $12 in advance.

Sunday, October 20 – Furlough Party @ The State Theatre

The Government may have been shut down, but the State Theatre keeps on rockin!

We realize that not getting paid can put a serious damper on the party, so we have decided to open up our doors for you to come in and enjoy some live music (Crooked Crow, Joe Rathbone and the Mercy Alliance) FOR FREE!

Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are FREE.
