It is Halloween time this weekend and the ghosts, goblins and spooks will be out in force in the Scenic City. It’s a fun time and there are lots of events planned for Chattanooga music lovers.

Thursday night, Here Come The Mummies (HCTM) kicks off the Halloween weekend at Rhythm & Brews. This is one of the best shows of the year, with the boys in bandages from Nashville coming to town with their unique brand of funk.

If you like horns, percussion, and an incredibly tight band, then this is the show for you. A highly successful group of studio musicians, HCTM will leave their Grammy awards at home, but bring the talent it took to win the coveted awards. This will be a special event, as their new, super high quality DVD should be available at the show.

Saturday night, Buds has their huge annual Halloween show, with Bud Lightning performing before a packed house of costumed revelers. This is a big show, with a $1000 in prizes for the best costumes.

T-Bones always has a great costumed crowd for Halloween, and this year they have the reunion concert of The Honky Dogs. I’ve been to several Halloween parties at T-Bones and always get a kick out of the patrons’ costumes.

The Mudpie has their open mic challenge contest Saturday night, and the contestants get extra points for wearing costumes. There is a lot of talent at this event and it is always fun, but I bet this one will be memorable. If you go, hoot and holler for my brother, Bill E. Payne, in town from Roanoke, VA.

Midtown Music Hall has Sloppy Roast Beef for Halloween. That’s the band, not the sandwich.

The Riverhouse Pub will host Eris and The Tammys at their Halloween event. This is a fun place and I bet Halloween will be a blast there.

My pick-o-the week is a double! Catch The Pool today at Miller Plaza for the Chattanooga Market Party, then head over to Rhythm & Brews and see Here Come The Mummies!

Bob’s pick-o-the-weekend is Crossfire, playing Friday & Saturday at the old Governor’s Lounge on Highway 58, now called the Lower Level.
