The end of October is especially eventful in the Remezcla office because we have not one, but TWO skull-filled, death-themed reasons to celebrate: Halloween and Dia de Muertos. We want you to have a bloody good time, so we’ve rounded up the best monster mashes, concerts, pop-up raves and more to check out this year. (And don’t forget our favorite Halloween activity of all – waking up early the next day to watch the best Walks of Shame you’ll see all year…)
Skull and Bones Halloween Party Oct. 31st, 9:00 PM
Musa Mind from Remezcla’s Cultura Dura event this year is throwing a Halloween bash withJoseph Mercado, Ms. Avery, and more at Apollos on Halloween night. The Phoenix team will be spinning house, edm, and throwbacks, as well as hosting a $100 cash prize costume contest. More info here.
Neon Halloween Block Party 2014 Oct. 31st, 8:00 PM
This Halloween, travel out to Downtown Tempe for one of the biggest costumed gatherings in all of Arizona. Costumes and fake blood will line the streets. Expect many of those in attendance to be undead and scantily clad as they are lured to the epicenter of the party by a truly stimulating Halloween spectacle at Casa Sunba. Come dressed in the craziest neon costume you can come up with and enjoy 2 indoor/outdoor spaces pumping EDM jams all night. More info here.
El Dia De Los Muertos Party Phoenix, Nov. 1st 11:00 PM
DJ Babyo presents Saddle Horn Bar’s biggest Dia de Muertos party in Phoenix. Expect latin jams and to get drunk really fast because they have a crazy selection of drink specials for this night. Plus, its free to attend. (Sidenote: Saddle Horn Bar is supposedly haunted, so this may be the best/worst time to come out and go drunkly ghost hunting.) More info here.
