On the List: Rising Up From the Dead Just in Time for Halloween

Oooooohhh! This is the ghost of nightlife past coming to haunt your dreams of weekend debauchery. It's been a while since I've recapped all there is to do across the Magic City, but let's hope I can revive the column from the dead for what's left of 2009.

If you've been vigilant you know that I've already written previews for The Other Hollywood at Awarehouse, Tera-Ween at Cameo, The Cat's Meow at the Raleigh, Playboy Halloween Party at the Shore Club, and "Devil's Disciple" After-party with Busy P at Electric Pickle, so no need to rehash those. But there plenty more Miami scares to be had all weekend long:

Brooklyn's Tommie Sunshine is back to haunt us with sounds of electro past. The DJ/producer takes over the decks at Louis at the Gansevoort (2325 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach) Friday night. If you want a real scare, Louis' door policy will take care of that.


White Room (1306 N Miami Ave., Miami) serves up a double-feature Friday and Saturday night. First, local electro-pop duo BFGF will be hosting a Halloween Eve costume party with the help of MGA,

DJPJ, R3K and Dave Betamax. The following night, the venue's Arcade

party gets down-right creepy with 12th Planet performing live along with resident DJ Damaged Goods.

Nearby,

Vagabond's (30 NE 14th Street, Miami) Back Door Bamby party presents

its Dysfunctional Freakout Freakfest Saturday night with the help of

Bamby regulars Nicole Soden, Cat King, Jasmine Kastel, Bianca d'An,

Adora, the Shameless Burlesque and more.

Across the causeway, Mansion (1235 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach) serves up the frights with a set by French DJ Joachim Garraud along with Laurent Simeca.

Finally, just because its familiar don't expect to feel safe when DJ Boris

stops by Space (34 NE 11th Street, Miami) in order to take over the decks in the

Terrace at midnight. Also on the bill, Guy Gerber and Tom Clark who

will be spinning in the Techno Loft.
