Hey boo

SUPER EGO: Ghost ride the Halloween party weekend

Turning heads: Peaches Christ and Heklina consult the ancient tomes for Halloween: A Party!


Time to slice some holes in a bedbugged sheet and hack through this year's Phantasmatorium of Flabberghastly Fantastic Halloween Parties. Our chilling soundtrack is provided by terror-iffic local post-electro haunter oOoOO, who's being broomed into the contentious new witch house subgenre, but who sends his own unique shiver down the spines of my stiletto eyeballs. You go, ghoul. (That joke kills me every time.)

Find oOoOO's ghoulish tunes at www.myspace.com/wkwkwkwkwkwkwkw


Long-running 18+ mainstay Popscene unleashes the horror, the horror of Brit pop bliss on a suspecting crowd of young fabs. DJs Omar and Aaron Axelsen bloody the decks — and this is the official warm-up party for the huge Spookfest at Cow Palace (www.cowpalace.com), so you know there'll be special guests. Thu/28, 9 p.m., $10. 330 Ritch, SF. www.popscene-sf.com


The city's best alternative retro-'90s club is reaching into the mothballs and pulling out the flannel and the neon — look out it's gonna be a warehouse party theme! That's right, rave meets grunge for all you young freaks. DJ Chris Orr makes sure it's all quality. OMG free Glo-Stiks while they last. Dress up, peeps. Fri/29, 9 p.m., $5. 111 Minna, www.111minnagallery.com


Calling all pink furry freaks and majik man-moths — inimitably beastly Burner crew Pink Mammoth hosts a night of chunky techno with an arsenic lace of dubstep. Phantasmic DJs Gravity and Jdub Ya whip your wool into a frenzy. Fri/29, 9 p.m., $5. Shine, 1337 Mission, SF. www.pinkmammoth.org
