Friday, November 1

Atlas Genius and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
House of Blues Anaheim
A few seconds into Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.'s 2013 release The Speed of Things, and your realize how much your ears are in for a harmonious treat. The duo's tantalizing music features Brian Wilson-esque vocals, synth pop and and indie rock converging for a light, airy sound. Appearing with headliner Atlas Genius, a group with similar indie-folk rock vibes. As an opening act, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. will simply whisk you away with their sleepy, sun-kissed sound and refresh your mind like a breath of new air. Performing tonight at the House of Blues, Anaheim with Family of the Year. (Aimee Murillo)

Halloween Hangover Party
Hurricane's Bar and Grill
Many years ago, Hurricane's in Huntington Beach--you know, the glowing raucous party bunker overlooking Main Street--was known as the spot to pick up Young Republicans. Later, explained this very paper, it evolved into the spot to pick up porn stars. But this Friday, it becomes the spot to battle your Halloween hangover with a little of the hair-of-the-werewolf-that-bit-ya and the suddenly extremely appropriately named DJ Curse of the legendary Beat Junkies. No word on if you get any drink specials for showing up in the ragged remains of whatever you wore until it tore the night before. But please, in advance, take the ragged remains of our sympathy and then take whatever Dr. Curse recommends, too. (Chris Ziegler)

Lisa Marie Presley
The Coach House
We can all get over the fact that Lisa Marie Presley comes from a musical lineage, although her music does recall early Sun Records-era Elvis Presley with her twangy twist on folk rock. A little bit of country, a little bit of rock and roll, Ms. Presley is a born singer-songwriter, and her smokey vocals hint a dark, sensual soulfulness with every word she sings. Now a bonafide Billboard chart topper, Presley's garnered praise all around and officially stepped out of her father's shadow, delivering her own brand of contemporary folk for our own enjoyment. Tonight she serenades audiences at The Coach House. (Aimee Murillo)
