As night falls at the Camel, the monsters come out to play a benefit for WRIR-FM 97.3 with costumes and not-so-scary music. The Monster Mashquerade features live performances by the Eurotics, Goldrush and a reunited Red Hot Lava Men, who bring their instrumental surf music out of hibernation for a one-night-only performance.

The WRIR Monster Mashquerade takes place at the Camel on Friday, Oct. 26, at 9 p.m. $5-$10 suggested donation. wrir.org.
