A pair of international star DJs is ready to take Miami on a journey into the haunted realms of techno and house. Israeli DJ/producer Guy Gerber will join Germany's Martin Buttrich in spinning spooky sounds. The party doubles as a birthday celebration for the "Queen of Space," Jackie Richie. Costumes and dancing shoes are strongly encouraged.

Devil's Night. With Miss Honey Dijon and Mystic Bill. 10 p.m. Saturday, October 29, at Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com. Tickets cost $10 to $15 via residentadvisor.net.

The Pickle will celebrate the Devil's favorite night with a bit of a Chicago spin. Windy City native Honey Dijon will spin house, techno, and disco vinyl in her South Florida debut. Also on tap to provide the soundtrack for noche de diablos is Mystic Bill, who'll make a Miami homecoming from Chi-Town to play the best underground music.

Cyborg Sundays — Devil's Night. 9 p.m. Sunday, October 30, at Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. Admission is free.

This semiregular electronic music party will have a Fright Night theme for its October edition. The no-cover event will feature the musical talents of Pazmal, Lautlos, Phantasman, Skinny Hendrix, and Brightwing. The green room will host Rat's Halloween party.

HalloWyn: Wynwood Halloween Block Party. 7 p.m. Monday, October 31, at Mana Production Lots, 2250 NW Second Ave., Miami; eventbrite.com.

Now that Wynwood has been declared officially Zika-free, the neighborhood can focus on pretend scary stuff. The free event will feature a DJ mixing live and a 240-foot LED screen showing cult-classic horror films including The Rocky Horror Picture Show at 10 p.m. More than 25 food trucks will be stocked with trick-or-treat foods. Those in costume will be eligible to win $500 in prizes for the most creative choice.

Halloween Night on Lincoln Road Mall. 7 p.m. Monday, October 31, at Lincoln Road Mall, Miami Beach; lincolnrd.com/hallo ween-2016. Admission is free.

With its sidewalk bars and cafés, Lincoln Road is always a spectacular spot for people-watching, but on Halloween, that activity goes to an entirely different galaxy. Every pop-culture figure imaginable will be in attendance as the pedestrian mall fills with costumed revelers. Temporary outdoor bars will be set up throughout, and ten DJs will spin songs on five stages. If that isn't enough entertainment for you, the local avant-garde circus performers of CircX will also put on a show.
