This weekend: Blues, barbecue, spooky cross, handmade bikes

The third-annual Blues, Bandits and BBQ festival is from 5-10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, and noon-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27.

Ben Kweller performs at the Kessler Friday. And on Saturday, the Kessler hosts the Blues, Bandits and BBQ after party with Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Slobberbone and Dove Hunter.

The Texas Theatre has Halloween “scaraoke” Friday and the original “Halloween.”

An reception for Gary D. Swaim’s “Divided Heart and Mind…” at Davis Foundry Gallery starts at 6 p.m. Saturday.

October is already almost over, and sadly, so is this year’s celebration of all things bicycle. The last Cyclesomatic events are this weekend. A two-day “Spooky Cross” cyclocross race starts out at Rosemont Elementary Saturday and includes a fun, carnival atmosphere for kids, plus the race. In cyclocross, spectators are encouraged to heckle and harass the racers, so bring water guns, noise makers and props. And wear costumes! The second day of racing is Sunday at Dallas Heritage Village.

The Texas Custom Bicycle Show is from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Club Dada. The free show features handmade bicycles from all over the state. This is the first year the show has come to Dallas after three years in Austin.
