Pick Up The Phone.
The day after Halloween is one of the three best times to buy candy in bulk. That shit is cheap rn. But no matter how much of it you eat tonight, you probably won’t die.
According to some researchers, the formula to find out how much candy you’d have to consume in order to die of toxicity is (W*13.5)/9.3 = pieces of fun-sized candy, where W is your body weight in pounds. Actually, that doesn’t seem all that impossible after all.
Better play it safe and get out of the house tonight, y’know, away from that candy stash. Might as well just avoid the temptation. — Cory Graves
Adele at American Airlines Center

KXT Turns 7 at Kessler Theater
Regardless of your opinion of the public radio station’s actual playlist, it tends to throw its name on decent shows from time to time, like this birthday party with headliners White Denim and rising local star Matt Tedder. — CG
Baio at Three Links
Earlier this summer, Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio rolled through Trees opening for Rhye, further distinguishing himself as a solo performer, with a catalog of material not too far a cry from his Vampy Weeks bros, with a few more electronic/dance elements thrown in, and slightly deeper vocal approach. — CG
Ingrid Michaelson at House of Blues
To this day Michaelson still manages to hang on to her “DIY Diva” nickname, and while that tag was an fitting one several years ago when the Staten Island native’s self-released, piano-driven pop tunes were scoring major placements in episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and in commercials for Old Navy, she’s since been embraced by main stream audiences. Her seventh studio effort, the recently released It Doesn’t Have To Make Sense even employed the use of a half-dozen different producers. To her fans, though, she’s still the self-sufficient indie-pop musician they’ve known all along. It’s amazing what a pair of over-sized prescription glasses does for one’s image. — CG
Nick Offerman: Full Bush at Majestic Theatre
This time around, we hear Ron Swanson’s act mostly revolves around singing country-tinged folk songs about things like pubic hair. — CG
A Conversation About Press Releases at Crown and Harp
