Halloween DVD Peeks to Shriek: Part II

Greetings and salutations* film ghouls and ghoulettes. Unless you’ve been buried alive or sleeping in an urban catacomb all month, you probably know the witchiest of witching hours is upon us. So sound the horns from hell, it’s great Hallow’s Eve here in the Yay Area so get ready to get weird.

Cocoon Urban Day Spa

Some people gorge on chocolate, others hit the gym. Me? I head straight for a mani-pedi when I need to de-stress after a killer week. (Remember that scene from Legally Blonde where Reese Witherspoon, aka Elle, comes to a screeching halt in front of a nail salon after finding out the traumatic news that her ex has a new fiancée?). I’m always down to scour the city— from luxe spas to mom-and-pop shops—in search of an excellent, not to mention sanity-saving, nail job.

Uber-hip French electro duo Justice played a monumental set in support of their highly acclaimed debut album at Mezzanine on Wednesday, October 10. Complete with cross-shaped glowsticks and a sound system decorated by a gigantic illuminated crucifix, Justice played a remarkable show that lasted until early morning. The dance-ready crowd warmed up to the electronic-infused rock sounds of Australian outfit Midnight Juggernauts.
