There's no shortage of excellent Halloween party options for Angelenos this weekend, but one of the most interesting looks to be the Do LaB's Halloween Bash at the Fonda this Saturday, featuring a performance by Beats Antique. No matter the season, a typical Beats Antique show looks like a Halloween costume party— featuring dancers wearing crazy animal heads, etc… so you can only imagine what kind of craziness they'll bring for a Halloween show. And good news for tribal fusion bellydance fans… it seems that Zoe Jakes has fully recovered from her illness and a busted toe and will be at full strength when she performs with Beats Antique. Opening acts include electronic artists Eliot Lipp and Jeremy Sole.

The Do LaB has made a name for themselves by producing events that are much more interactive and participatory than your typical spectator event (such as their annual Lightning In A Bottle festival) and they will definitely be getting the crowd involved this Saturday as well. Before the headliner takes the stage, audience members will compete in the "best costume" contest, and the winner will get the very first ticket for Lightning In A Bottle 2011. There will also be at least 5 artists doing live painting, through Do LaB's Lightning In A Paintcan project. Other fun surprises throughout the night are expected as well. [Ticket info]
