Eight Gigs: Grindoween

Fri., Oct. 28, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $10

When’s the last time Halloween actually horrified you? You know, in that way that makes you feel like you should go home and pray? Those unfamiliar with grindcore might have those feelings after hitting up Grindoween at Starlite Lounge. (This is an excellent thing, of course.) The lineup is too stacked to do justice here, but Vermin Womb (pictured) and Theories are among the bands playing—if you know, you know, and if you don’t know, get to knowing. It’ll be fast, vicious and hopefully more than just a bit unnerving. 1517 21st Street, www.facebook.com/events/
