InFest is back this weekend!

This weekend, take advantage of the fact that it's perfectly acceptable to leave the house dressed up as whatever you want. Halloween's still a week away technically, but no one's going to judge preemptive costume enthusiasts unless it's part of a contest. InFest StL 4 hits four Cherokee Street venues this weekend and encourages ghoulish garb. The same goes for the Guitar Dog Halloween party down the street at Livery Company. Choose a character wisely while attending any of the following shows, but most importantly: Get out of the house this weekend!

Friday (October 25):

This Friday, Animal Collective invades the Pageant, New Music Circle welcomes William Parker's In Order to Survive and Doom Town releases a record. Click on the links to learn more.

Saturday (October 26):

The Boxer Rebellion w/ The Glass Cavalry @ The Gramophone 8 p.m. | $14/$16 Please note: Boxer Rebellion THE BAND, from London, will be coming to the Gramophone this weekend, NOT Boxer Rebellion the WAR in China from 1899. I know, I know; I was confused at first too. But yeah, the BAND. (DH)

Broncho @ The Firebird 8:30 p.m. | $10-$12 Please note: Broncho THE BAND will be coming to the Firebird, NOT the horse....oh shit, I just made that joke, didn't I? Damnit. OK, well just go to this show; it'll be fun and Broncho rules. (DH)

Guitar Dog's Halloween Freak Show w/ Maness Brothers, Durango, Zak Marmalefsky, Peck of Dirt, Vanilla Beans and more @ Livery company 3 p.m. | free We had a helluva time deciphering the Halloween-themed code names for some of the bands playing, but a free day-long show with live music, bobbing for apples, tarot card and astrology chart readings, caricatures and decorations galore seemed liked a no-brainer. The Maness Brothers release 25 of their test pressings this evening, too! (MS)

JJ Grey & Mofro w/ Revivalists @ The Pageant 8 p.m. | $22.50-$27 JJ Grey & Mofro is a combination of soul, funk, blues and Southern rock and comes welcomed by KDHX. See what they had to say about the upcoming show in an interview with Grey here. (MS)
