Below are PRP picks, but don’t miss out on our friends from Oregon Music News and their great ideas for getting out this weekend.
Day of the Dead? Try out Friday night’s Dia de los Muertos celebration instead. Put together in part by Y La Bamba‘s Luz Elena Mendoza, the party begins with a black-clad procession through the streets and ends at the Crystal Ballroom with Edna Vazquez, Aztec dancing and a performance from Mendoza’s new band Tiburones. Crystal Ballroom, 6 p.m. (procession at SW Clay & Park at 5:30 p.m.), $10-12 (kids 12 & under free)
The Parson Red Heads CD Release Party — The band debuts its new album “Orb Weaver” on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Aladdin Theatre.
Acoustic Minds — It’s girl power with Whitney Myer, Lindsey Paveo & Hero’s Last Mission joining Acoustic Minds on Saturday, Nov. 2, at Vie de Boheme. Two cans of food for OFB!
Looking for the dreamiest music ever? Don’t miss Mazzy Star at the Crystal Ballroom on Sunday, Nov. 3. It’s a great way to wind down the crazy shenanigans of a Halloween weekend. $30-33, all ages.
