2. Diplo with Smookie Illson, October 6 at The Metropolitan Nightclub.

Boy Oh Boy. If you're in the mood to have a NIGHT, doors for this EDM show open at 9 p.m. and close at 5 a.m. Lots of bang for your $50 ticket.

4. 3LAU with Justin Caruso, October 8 at Republic.

And since you're already attending two EDM shows in a row, why not just go to a third? Keep up with the unst unst beat for just $25 (plus fees).

5. Chance the Rapper, October 13, Ballroom at Mardi Gras World.

Great rapper, great venue- what more could a Chance fan ask for? Listen to some great music while watching the sunset over the Mississippi. Tickets may be difficult to obtain for this show and are sold out on many sites, but here's what I was able to find. Also on the pricey side- beware.

6. Elvis Costello with Larkin Poe, October 15 at Saenger Theater.

Simply classic. May be more of your parents' cup of tea, but I know there are at least a few of you who would enjoy this show.

8. "Monster Mash" Krewe of Boo Costume Party & Concert, October 22 at The Howlin' Wolf.

Start Halloween a week early with this bash. Get your funk on with Dumpstaphunk and Sexual Thunder while rockin' a killer costume (pun intended).

9. Steve Aoki, Mija, Bleep Bloop and Wuki, October 29 at Mardi Gras World.

If Steve Aoki is still crowdsurfing in a blow-up raft for this show (and there's a chance I can join in on the action), then count me in. Get your tickets here to see what this crazy man has planned for NOLA Halloween weekend.

10. Heaven & Hell featuring Nicky Romero, October 29 at The Metropolitan Nightclub.

Another great DJ making his way to NOLA this month, and all the way from Amsterdam. More artists are to be announced for this show, which is guaranteed to be an EDM filled night. It ends at 6 a.m., so nap in preparation!

11. Galactic, October 29 at Tipitina's.

If EDM ain't your thing, then jam to the beat of this awesome New Orleans born band instead on the Saturday of Halloween. This decision gives you the opportunity to spend your night at one of the coolest venues in NOLA, as well. Pick your poison wisely!

12. Big Gigantic, October 31 at Joy Theater.

And on the night of Halloween itself (which is a Monday, FYI), where else would you want to be but here? Funky, electronic, and amazing. Get your school work done in advance so that you can attend this amazing show.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F03%2F636111332958354208335820005_Big%2520Gigantic-20131017-014-L.jpg&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=354&h=651cc83faf82cc59fb01165867ce3fe176d6bb2d4bb4bc36d4a5a3f2ded39c01&size=980x&c=1282480133 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F03%252F636111332958354208335820005_Big%252520Gigantic-20131017-014-L.jpg%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D354%26h%3D651cc83faf82cc59fb01165867ce3fe176d6bb2d4bb4bc36d4a5a3f2ded39c01%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1282480133%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]


13. Voodoo Music and Arts Experience, October 28-30 at City Park.

And finally, a festival that will keep you going ALL weekend long. Headliners include The Weeknd, G-Eazy, Porter Robinson, Arcade Fire, The Chainsmokers, and Gramatik—totaling to over 64 bands on four stages. And if you get bored of the music (which you won't), browse through hand-crafted items from art vendors, enjoy food from local restaurants, and even ride some carnival rides. Get in on the action here.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

9246

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
