Lots of worthy shows are happening this Halloween—Partman Parthorse, Truckasauras, the motherfucking Sonics—but what you really want on this holiday is a manic, satanic party. Diplo (boss of the record label Mad Decent and DJ for M.I.A. and Santogold) is sure to deliver just that, mixing fun-sized song treats with old-skool DJ tricks and monster mash-ups. He could do things to "Thriller" that would make more than your body shiver. Rounding out the bill is the wicked electro bounce of London's Boy 8-Bit, the dark tropical post-punk of Abe Vigoda, and Telepathe. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $15, all ages.)
