Astari Nite
Halloween won't fall on a weekend again until 2014, and it won't fall on a Saturday again until 2015. So Palm Beach residents will have no excuse Saturday. No "next year," no "I'm too tired after working all week." This is a call for them to take to the streets for the free street party Moonfest.

Dress code will include favorite celeb/public villain (cough, Sarah Palin, cough), condiment (Florida orange), idiom (dead ringer: dress as a zombie and bring a bell!), or anything creative.

Music will include performances by Astari Nite, Leading the Heroes, Nothing Rhymes with Orange, Mission Veo, and Surfer Blood, the last of which seems positioned to be our next rock heroes after receiving favorable reviews from Spin.com and Pitchfork, among others.

Other entertainment will feature street performers, a haunted house, circus acts, rides, games, and an adult costume contest including $1,000 in cash and prizes. The party starts at 4 p.m. and will be held from the 500 block of Clematis Street to the end of Clematis in downtown West Palm. VIP tickets for the private R.I.P. tent cost $35 and include free food and drinks.

Moonfest afterparties will be held at Oshea's Irish Pub (531 Clematis Street) and Respectable Street (518 Clematis Street).
