In the spirit of Halloween, Boulder creative space Astroland is holding its first annual DIY or Die Fest, a massive holiday celebration featuring over a dozen local bands and DJs to the backdrop of some spooky films and the promise of free candy.
Well, the tacos aren't free, but like most things occurring at a DIY venue, we're assuming the tacos (and the show) will be on a pay-what-you-can basis.

On Friday, October 29, Astroland (along with companion space Drala) is asking for a donation of five dollars for the Halloween party, and in exchange has brought together a lineup that includes Conjugal Visits, the Omens, Lust-Cats of the Gutters, Black Acid Devil, School Knights, Thee Goochi Boiz, Gangcharger and many others.
From 8 p.m. until the wee hours of the morning, bands will play, DJs will bring the dance party, and a costume contest (with prizes) is also on the agenda. Hey, this might be the perfect time for a dry run of that "Bed Intruder" Halloween costume you ordered off the Internet. Oh, and did we mention Astroland promises it will be selling tacos?
