She Shreds 5 Year Anniversary
For those who think the constant preening and posturing of male guitarists is RIDICULOUS, She Shreds magazine—devoted to spotlighting women guitarists and bassists—is a hard-rocking, healing salve. Now five years old, She Shreds is celebrating their well-earned anniversary with a show that (naturally) features a lineup of fantastic women performers, including Nat Palm (of Hiatus Kaiyote), Francesca Simone (who played for Beyoncé [!!!]), three piece Cumbia band Sávila, and the radical indigenous queer feminism of Black Belt Eagle Scout. This is a party that’s guaranteed to shred. (8 pm, Revolution Hall, $10-20) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Liz Vice, Moda Spira
Liz Vice is labeled a gospel singer, but that’s not a completely accurate descriptor. Yes, her songs are almost solely dedicated to all things Jesus, but Vice’s music owes more to soul-influenced gospel than to tambourine-shaking revivalism—she’s more Mavis Staples than Mahalia Jackson. Her debut, There’s a Light, was quietly released in 2015, and since then she’s garnered much-deserved praise (no pun intended), climbing both gospel and R&B Billboard charts. (9 pm, Aladdin Theater, $17-20) SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY

Anjali & the Incredible Kid return once again for one of the biggest, bassiest, bhangriest Halloween parties the city has ever seen, with support from Adam McCollom on the Panjabi dhol drum, dance performances from Tiare Tashnick, Paulina Munoz, and Sasha Khetarpal-Vasser, remixed Halloween visuals from South Asian horror films by Micha Schmelzer and Deai, special guests, a costume contest, and much more! 9 pm, No Vacancy Lounge, $15)

Dragging an Ox Through Water, Gillian Frances, Half Shadow
Swirling with and against Brian Mumford's voice and acoustic guitar are swaths of electronics, oscillators, synthesizers, and god knows what else. There are things like hummable choruses and moments of lilting serenity, but it remains heavy stuff from a heavy place. (7 pm, Mothership Music, free) ANDREW R. TONRY

Judy on Duty: Halloween

Thrill the World
Another Halloween, another joyous celebration of what many consider to still be the greatest music video ever made, featuring hundreds (maybe even thousands) of people re-enacting Michael Jackson's famous dance routine. Degree of difficulty: They have to re-enact all of it, not just the Frankenstein's monster side-to-side bit. Or the slide-and-overhead-clap bit. (3 pm, Irving Park, free, all ages)

Kennedy School Halloween Party
One of the most fun venues in the entire city transforms into an '80s-era costume party starring My Siamese Twin resurrecting the alternative music of the 1980s, with a tribute set covering the likes of The Smiths, The Cure, New Order, Echo & the Bunnymen, Peter Murphy, The Cult, The Psychedelic Furs, The Church and more. (7 pm, Kennedy School, free)

Poltergeist LIVE
Theeeeey're gone! Tonight is the last 2018 performance of Bad Reputation's smash success parody Poltergeist Live!; which is, of course, a spoof on the ’80s film about a little blonde girl getting sucked into her TV set? IDK, I never saw it. But I got the gist from last year’s production because you don’t really need to see the original film to enjoy this ridiculous spoof which includes the Mercury’s own Editor in Chief, Wm. Steven Humphrey in the cast—not as the little girl but as something equally innocent and terrifying! (8 pm, Siren Theater, $18-25) SUZETTE SMITH
