Let’s say you’re in the mood for something loud. There’s the Clockcleaner show at Now That’s class on Saturday. They sound a lot like the name implies — like you just got your clock cleaned. Something strange? There’s the Flaming Lips listening party on Sunday night. You can turn it into a double feature with the Film School show happening in the Tavern right down the street. Something fun? I’d recommend the Beachland Ballroom’s Halloween party featuring a big lineup of area rockers covering their favorite bands. Lastly, let’s say you’re looking for something Swedish, well, you’re in luck too, as the king of Swedish pop, Jens Lekman will be at the Beachland Ballroom on Thursday.
