October is Here!

It looks like October is a busy month for everyone! All of my friends involved with the paranormal are reaping the benefits of the one time of the year when everyone wants to hear about what they do. All of my Wiccan/Pagan friends are getting geared up to celebrate Samhain, and enjoy the opportunity to use the holiday to educate others about their faith. Of course for everyone else there is Halloween. Now is the time to start marking your calendars for all the stuff happening this month.

My October is hectic. Here are just a few of the awesome things going on this month that I’m going to partaking of:

October 24, 2008 – Richard Thompson, live in concert at The Egg! The man is a legend and with good reason. Click here to see why, and then envy me if you can’t attend.

October 26, 2008 – P3 in Plattsburgh, NY. My good friends, the NNYPRS, are hosting their first paranormal event. Not only is it free, but I will be a member of their panel discussion! If you’re anywhere remotely close, it’s going to be worth the drive to check it out. Click here for details.

October 31, 2008 – Henry Rollins, The Recountdown Tour. While everyone else is getting their paranormal, Samhain, and/or Halloween groove on I will be enjoying an engaging evening of a Rollins spoken word show. Funny, smart, and edgy, if you ever have the chance to check out one of these shows, don’t pass it up! Click here if you’re in the Albany, NY area and want details. Click here for more tour dates.

Of course as hard as it is to imagine, it’s not all about me and what I’m doing. There are loads of other things going on in October. For starters, there is Salem, MA. I’ve yet to experience the Witchcraft overload of October in Salem, but it is on the to do list! Click here for just a taste of what “Witch City” has to offer! A few other things worth noting:

October 25, 2008 – Trinity Temple’s Witches Ball. These guys know how to have a good time! Click here for info.

October 26, 2008 – A Witches Tea at The Crystal Tea Room. This sounds like so much fun it makes me wish I lived in Indiana! Click here for details.

October 26, 2008 – Albany Comic Con. A convention for comic geeks in the capital of New York state! Click here for info.

October 31, 2008 – A special Halloween séance at the Holistic Studies Institute. I attended last year and trust me, show up early. The place was packed, and with good reason…it was a great time! Click here for details.

This is just a tiny glimpse of all the awesome and varied events going on in October. Take some time to poke around on line and I’m sure you’ll find stuff going on where you live.
