PHX Countdown to Halloween: Night #7: Dancing on Our Graves

Throwed's Haunted Mansion at the Middle East

If you want to do the monster mash (or just rub up against a mysterious stranger all night) you're in luck. Because there are a ton of Halloween dance parties going down this weekend and on Halloween night. We rounded up just a few of the Top 40, hip-hop, goth (Ceremony picked a good week to celebrate their 16th year as one of this city's best goth and darkwave nights), rock, and electro Halloween dance-til-you-drop-dead dance parties around town.
