DJ Needles in 2012. He performs on Friday as part of KDHX's Art Attack.

This weekend is still pretty Halloween-y, so don't put that costume away just yet. This weekend, check out some spooky sounds from the Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra, or see some touring acts. Flux Pavilion, Okkervil River and Living Colour are all in town. Keep on reading to get the details on these shows. Alternatively, get ready for the madness that is KDHX's annual Art Attack (crazy hilarious promo video right after the jump).

Friday (November 1):

Art Attack w/ Nappy DJ Needles @ Plush 7:30 p.m. | $15 Everyone's favorite local community radio station hosts its annual Art Attack -- here's a great KDHX Art Attack flyer -- fundraising event, which pits local artists' canvases up against each other in a overtly destructive battle-auction setting. If that sounds wacky, it's because it totally is. DJ Needles spins at the after party, free with admission. (MS)

Flux Pavilion w/ Skism, Roksonix @ The Pageant 8 p.m. | $27.50/$32.50 Flux Pavillion is that guy that does EDM songs for car commercials and stuff right? Oh, he performs live too? Neat! (DH)

Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra @ The Heavy Anchor 9 p.m. | $10 The uber-talented R&P MPO performs its original score to Häxan Witchcraft through the Ages aka this scary-as-hell-sounding Swedish/Danish silent horror film. If you're still feelin' freaky from Halloween, check it out! (MS)

Also on Friday, check out P.O.E. Fest and Noisefest, the latter which continues throughout the weekend. Read our feature about the tenth anniversary of Noisefest here.
