Halloween at the Roosevelt


For the hotel's 12th annual Halloween bash—spanning the entire property, from ballroom to pool—music will be provided by resident DJs (at least seven, by our count). The Roosevelt DJs know how to get even the most lackadaisical of starlets up and dancing. The hotel will be decked out in Halloween get-up (think dungeons and ancient crypts), of course, and its reputation for ghostly sightings is likely to give it a few extra creepy plus points.

Halloween House Party + Zombie Square Dance

Music Jazz

Local folk and bluegrass bands the Dustbowl Revival and Triple Chicken Foot are hosting a backyard hootenanny on All Hallow's Eve, with projections, bonfires, pretty lights and an undead square dance. There will also be beer and snacks on hand—the event is free, but donations are suggested.


SpectreFest Presents: A Stones Throw Halloween


Spend your Halloween with tricks, treats and tunes at record label Stones Throw's Masquerade Beat-Ball. Don your finest costume and nod your head through a night of synths, beats and hypnotic rhymes. The lineup will consist of some of the best on the label's roster:  Vex Ruffin, Pyramid Vritra, Chrome Canyon and a costumed cabaret by Folerio (alter ego of Stones Throw founder Peanut Butter Wolf). Bizarro horror projections on the wall will set the eerie mood.
