El Launchpad (618 Central Ave NW) continues to bring pre-Halloween hijinks to a head on Saturday, Oct. 28, with this year’s third iteration of the insanely popular Night of the Living Cover Bands concert. This time around, as the clock counts down to all hallows eve, there’ll be spooky performances by local bands reporting directly to the stage from the uncanny valley. Prepare for sets like The Coma Recovery as Nine Inch Nails while Lilah Rose invokes Weezer, Sorry Guero re-imagines Suicidal Tendencies (if they do “Institutionalized,” I’ll be good and goddamned) and Cobra vs. Mongoose covering the Rolling Stones! And guess what else? DJ Buddha Funk will be your evening’s host, so don’t be scared, be truly overjoyed. 8pm • $5/adv, $8/door • 21+.
