- So Dope! @ dbar: Need another excuse to dance this Thursday night? Dorchester's hip hotspot dbar hosts So Dope!, a night of indie electronica, house, and dance party classics. (The party's neon Myspace page is literally bumping with LA Riots' remixes — hot.) Liquid leggings and Ray-Ban glasses are obviously welcome. 10 p.m.

- Free hours @ the Currier Museum: If you've been meaning to check out the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Currier Museum in Manchester, NH — it's only an hour away, people — this should help motivate you. For two hours on Saturdays, admission to the recently renovated galleries is free. Get your fill of Jackie O., Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Mao, and more as your browse Warhol's political paintings and drawings and think about the upcoming election. 10 a.m. to noon.
- Monster Mash-up @ TBA location: Sorry to be vague, but Boston's favorite fun-starters Banditos Misteriosos prefer it that way. These merry pranksters have a Monster Mash-up group dance planned for somewhere in the city on Saturday. Are you game? Cut eye-holes in you best sheet (preferably paisley or spattered with superheroes) and wait for a location to be posted on the Banditos Misteriosos' site Friday. There's an instructional dance video posted there now to tell you which visual cues will prompt various dance moves come this weekend (do-si-do when you see a picture of a witch, for example). And obviously, a bat should motivate you to wave your hands in the air in a "hey, ho" fashion. 2 p.m.
