AMG Weekend Picks: Mike Doughty, Rich Robinson, The Jayhawks, St. Vincent and More!

BOO! Hope we didn’t scare ya – just getting into the spirit of things for the epic Halloween celebrations this weekend. Not only are there a ton of gigs, where you are bound to see your favorite rockers and rappers in their most hilarious costumes, but there are also some madcap parties. Scoutmob’s sold-out extravaganza takes over the Goat Farm, with treats from Good Food Truck, Sugar-Coated Radical and more, and 99X’s Brouhaha is back again, with Wrongway and Ill-Communication playing the Sublime and Beastie Boys hits. So pick your poison, and have a ghastly, frightening holiday!
