Halloween is, hands down, the best party holiday of the year offering multiple opportunities to dress crazy and explore your wild side. Second to New Yearâ€™s Eve, it is also the premier night for bands to take the stage and warp their identities. This Halloween, Brotherly Love Productions has summoned three eerie nights of musical tricks from Oct 29 â€“ 31 and costume contest treats including Aura Music Festival tickets, bar tabs, hot new BLP merch, and band and bar goodies.

EP3 w/ DuBBle James @ Funky Buddha Lounge
$5 | 9pm | 18+
Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, EP3 have been hard at work over the past year, touring throughout the US where theyâ€™ve shared the stage with a number of well-known acts including Pretty Lights, Bassnector and Pnuma Trio. This four-piece has embraced new technologies and traditional improvisational elements, creating their own brand of live electronic music. The release of “EP3D” has found the band exploring new musical ground, combining top shelf production from Underlying Themes Studio with all the power and feel their live show is famous for. www.ep3band.com
DuBBle James is the womped-out alter ego of keyboardist Jim Wuest and drummer Jamie Newitt (both of The Heavy Pets). In their free time, this duo has been mastering the hottest and trendiest electronic music style today, using no computers, only live instrumentation to create their unique down tempo dubstep.

Aquaphonics â€œUnder The Seaâ€ Halloween Party @ Funky Buddha Lounge
$5 before 11pm, $10 after 11pm | 9pm-3am | 18+
Aquaphonics is a uniquely funky electro-soul indie band that is quickly gaining steam in their native South Florida. Derived from friends and jam sessions, Aquaphonics has boasted several different members and worn different skins, yet to this day retains its original, liquid, “Aquaphonics Sound.” The band is comprised of founding members, Jessiah Weston (drums) and Alan Martinki (keys), who have been melding their music since 2000, along with dynamic guitarist Steve Elmore and bassist Jim Dinsmore. Their edgy grooves and inspired song writing continues evolving and has recently earned them spots supporting Perpetual Groove and a set at Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival in November. www.aquaphonicsband.com
