Spooky movies, country music and Scottish music workshop happen in Halloween week

Halloween week brings music, art and movies — (the hideously frightening “Psycho” in Spencer and the quirky “Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater). If that’s not your style, you can dance to a live band and watch a country music documentary at Nashville’s Mike’s Dance Barn or hear duo Alasdair Fraser, Scotland’s fiddle ambassador, and California cellist Natalie Haas at the FAR Center. For your art treat bag, try the free Halloween art market at the Back Door.

Country music band and documentary in Brown County

Eat, drink, dance to live country music and see a film at Mike’s Music & Dance Barn. This Brown County venue near Nashville, is surrounded by orange and crimson foliage. The expansive dance floor is made of wood, and starting at 6 p.m. Saturday the Barn will host the first showing of the documentary “Houston’s History of C&W Dance.” The film honors those responsible for the expansion of country and western dance, which stepped up in popularity in the early 1980s. Doors open at 5 p.m.; the film starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20-$35.

Then at 7 p.m. Jim Hayden and the Country Playboys play dance music and patrons’ favorite tunes. A Bud and Sissy Look Alike contest, games, dance lessons and an unusual photo booth are part of the fun. Mike’s Dance Barn is at 2277 Ind. 46, Nashville..

Hand-picking music by Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas at FAR Center

Alasdair Fraser, Scotland’s fiddle ambassador, and California cellist Natalie Haas use teamwork, rhythm, improvisation and Scottish tunes to bring back Scotland’s method of plucking, bowing and strumming dance music. The duo will conduct and perform a string workshop at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the 505 Theater at FAR Center for Contemporary Arts, at the corner of Rogers and Fourth streets. Bloomington Roots and FAR are working together to bring the event to Bloomington. Tadhg Ó Meachair and Joanna Hyde will open the event.

‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ happens Saturday

Last year it sold out. This year, for $5, the audience gets a bunch of items such as a hat, a glove, a bell. They’ll need them to dive into the film and festivities — including a costume contest guided by Bloomington drag queen Oriana Perón. Also before the show is a “devirginization” process for people who have never seen “Rocky Horror Picture Show” while seated with a live audience. It begins at 7 and 11 p.m. Saturday at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, 114 E. Kirkwood Ave. For details, go to seeconstellation.org/events or call the box office at 812-336-9300.

‘Psycho’ in Spencer

For $3, see one of the world’s scariest movies, Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” (1960), at 7 p.m. Friday at the Tivoli Theatre in Spencer, 24 N. Washington St., phone is 812-714-8069. Despite modern advances in technology and effects, “Psycho” retains its ability to send audiences home to scrutinize their basements and bathtubs. “I wouldn’t hurt a fly,” says Anthony Perkins as his once-sexy mama’s troubled son. You’d better hope you’re not that fly. For tickets ($5 for adults, $3 for youth) call 812-714-8069 or go online to historic.spencertivoli.org.
