Sing Like A Bird.

It’s barely fall, but grocery stores have already started selling pumpkins ripe for the carving. So you could always spend hours learning to carve one of these 3D pumpkin sculptures and be the king of your street for a day.

Or, you could just buy one of these carve-free decorating kits, slap it together in 30 seconds flat, and then go out on the town. If you opt for the latter, you can always use the list below to become the king of going out for the day. — Cory Graves

Andrew Bird at Majestic Theatre
If you’ve never seen Andrew Bird perform live, trust us, you’re going to be floored when you finally do. The guy’s more than just musical genius; he’s a total pro, and his live shows reflect as much as he switches from his trademark violin to his guitar and glockenspiel and back. And then there’s the whistling. So much whistling! And he’s great at that, too. His music is a little folky, a little poppy, a lot inventive, and, well, just downright ethereal. Also? His lyrics came make even the most apocalyptic subject sound winsome. Let’s just put it this way: Bird’s albums are the ones that you want to put on repeat. And his live show is one you won’t want to miss. — Jordyn Walters

Since 2011, the Los Angeles-based Mystic Braves has brought a new sound to the lo-fi indie table.

Speaking of that, Witch Mountain and Mothership open. — Porttia Portis

Training Day at Alamo Drafthouse (Cedars)
Before revisiting this Denzel Washington flick, might we suggest going back and listening to this podcast where we discuss the film with a real live cop who has been in some similar situations to the ones Washington’s character goes through. Oh, and we also ask him a bunch of stupid questions, like how easy it is to buy heroin. — CG
