When she’s not fighting with Dave Grohl, granting Jay-Z permission to use Nirvana lyrics or ambushing a Madonna interview (yeah we know that was a long time ago), Courtney Love is still playing music. Although she abandoned using the name Hole for her new band after much criticism from Hole’s original guitarist Eric Erlandson, we’re sure you’ll still hear classics like Miss World and Malibu tonight during her set at the Warsaw.

It’s probably time we declare the entirety of October Halloween month, rather than restricting all the costumed revelry to one night a year. In the interest of extending your spooky good times, we’ve rounded up two weekends worth of fabulous frightening fêtes, from the creepy catacombs of Green-Wood Cemetery to the terrifyingly toxic Newtown Creek.

It arrives earlier and with more abundance each year—pumpkin-spice season. Flavoring everything, from cookies, to cream cheese, to local beer, to much-maligned-as-of-late pumpkin spice lattes that have become a sure sign of sweater-weather, pumpkin, the faker the better it seems, has become shorthand for fall.
