Neon Knights: A pre-Halloween, post-Gary Numan dance party

Halloween should really be the entire month of October, not just one day. That's how its celebrated, anyway, with suburban multiplex haunted houses starting up before fall even hits, and pre-Halloween parties in full effect. This Thursday, Neon Knights goes down at the Meadowlark, as a pre-Halloween, post-Gary Numan concert shindig.

Denver staples Shannon Von Kelly (DJ Bomb Pop to you old school dancers), Soto and Soup promise to "serve up another totally irresistible mix of rump bumpin' and fist pumpin' electro/pop/synth/hop/cosmic/wave/tronic to the Meadowlark this Thursday, October 28, and costumes are encouraged. To top it off, Fancy Tiger Clothing will be giving away locally made items carried in the DIY boutique.

This DJ line-up is killer -- Soto was a resident at Double Daughters for years, Soup can be seen weekly at Shag for Scumbag Sundays, and Von Kelly just tore it up at Danceotron last weekend. Set to visuals by Mario Zoots and his AUDIO//VISUAL//VIOLENCE//CLUB and combined with Meadowlark's intimate setting, this dance party will surely knock some sweaty socks off. $3 gets you in the door, but if you bring your Gary Numan ticket stub, the party is free.

Not sure what you're getting into? Check out this free mix from birthday boy Soto himself:
