The Big Broadcast of 1946 at the Somerville Theatre

7:30 p.m.

The Post-Meridian Radio Players will be returning to the Somerville Theatre this weekend for some old-timey Halloween entertainment.  Actors will bring to life the old radio shows “The Frank Cyrano Byfar Hour”, in which a frenzied Boston radio host tries to entice horror film icon Boris Karloff to visit the studio, and “Tomes of Terror”, a compilation of scary stories by WPM.  Showtimes are Thursday, Friday, & Saturday: 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets range in price from $15 – $20.

The Union Square Round Table at PA’s Lounge

9:30 p.m. – 12:30 a.m.

Local comedy troupe  Union Square Round Table hosts a variety show at PA’s Lounge on the last Friday of every other month; this coming Friday is one of those days.  In addition to USRT’s comedic stylings, this weekend’s show will be bolstered by music from Baltimore band Nuclear Power Pants and some stand up from comedic heavyweight Eugene Mirman.  There will also be a lecture by Eugenia Williamson of the Boston Phoenix.

Doors at 8:30; tickets are $7 for those 21+, and $10 for those between 18 and 20 (the show is 18+).

Halloween Show at Rosebud Bar

9:00 p.m.

Halloween is a time for people to dress up and pretend to be rock stars.  People already in bands achieve this feeling by pretending to belong to a different, usually more famous band.  Rosebud Bar will be hosting a Halloween show, with Old Jack as Jenny Lewis, Johnny Arguedas as Wilco and Nate Leavitt as Ryan Adams.

The show is 21+ and $5 at the door.

The folks over at Rosebud must really like Halloween, given their weekend lineup; local band Summer Villains will be celebrating the release of (and playing from) their festively titled CD, “Halloweenilicious.”

The show is 21+ and $5 at the door.
