Folks, I love Halloween. It's my favorite holiday and I'm disappointed that not many folks will celebrate it here on Sunday. What gives? Sure it's fine to celebrate it on Saturday, too. But Sunday is Halloween, and it seems like most of the Halloween activities will be closed. Boo.

Here's some stuff to do this weekend, though, whether you're in the mood for spookiness or not.

Tonight through Nov. 7

Plan B's 20th anniversary season opener, She Was My Brother will get you thinking. Two Victorian anthropologists fall in love with the same person, a Zuni leader who possesses two spirits. The plan runs as part of Transgender Awareness Month. Catch it at the Rose Wagner Theater. Visit for ticketing information and times.

Saturday, Oct. 30

Azure Ray, the divine duo of Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink will be at The State Room for a decidedly un-spooky show. If you like a soft, dreamy, enchanted alternative sound, this show is for you. For a free preview, visit, where they offer free downloads of their songs. Yes, free! Right now you can get a couple songs from their new album, Drawing Down the Moon. For more information on the show, visit Doors at 8 PM and Time Fite and James Husband open.

Saturday, Oct. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 31

OK, I couldn't resist. And thanks to Tracy Aviary, there's some good spooky fun to be had on Halloween! The aviary will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, and kids can trick-or-treat while learning about birds! There will be bird mysteries and story telling, and those who dress in costume can receive half off the price of admission. Good ol' fashioned family fun!
