Pulse-sating Parties

In a year of weekend-long parties, some of the best are saved for last. Here’s what’s going down around town Saturday night.

Bloodfeast Media Party: Machine plays Halloween every night of the year, so expect the ghoulishness to be raised when DJs Mistaker, Mothra and others darken up the electro vibes, with tricks and treats from Karmaloop. 1256 Boylston St., 9 p.m., $15,

Resurrect (True Productions and Throwed): The legendary Circus electro party is back from the dead for one devilish night in a sleek bass-thumping electro throwdown with VIPJ of the Cool Kids and local beat paraders Vadum Rankin, Fantastadon, E-Marce and Jeff Gil. Candy corn sushi, anyone? Privus Lounge, 165 Brighton Ave., Allston, 10 p.m., $10,

A Nightmare on Charles Street: A haunted house in a renovated old prison with a costume party and beats dropped by DJ Michael Savant. What else do you need? Overnight packages are available. The Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles St., 8 p.m., $25,

Lifestyle as Depeche Mode: Taking a break from spins as New Order, local synthpop vets Lifestyle twirl the mike stand of David Gahan and his gloomy crew. But get there early for Lake Champagne’s turn as Prince. Reach out and touch cake! Great Scott, 1222 Commonwealth Ave., Allston, 9 p.m., $10,

Slumber Party Massacre 2: The club transforms into the set of a cheesy ’80s horror flick, and Joe Bermudez shows why he’s the most internationally recognized DJ in Boston. Expect a massive crowd. Pearl Nightclub, 275 Tremont St., 10 p.m., $20,

The Lights Out as Phil Collins: Lots of easy lovers in the air tonight, not to mention a tribute serving of Duran Duran (the Luxury), David Bowie (Sidewalk Driver) and the Runaways (Gene Dante & the Future Starlets). Church, 69 Kilmarnock St., 7 p.m., $12,

Voodoo Fest: Felt Nightclub takes on a New Orleans theme, and we can only hope they have Hurricanes and Hand Grenades mixed right behind the bar. Jay K the DJ breaks the levees on the Top 40 dance party. 533 Washington St., 10 p.m., $10,

Big sound small room: If you’re not into big bashes, pack in tightly at the free dive party with DJs Die Young and Baltimoroder and a live performance by DPony (members of Hooray For Earth, Wild Light and Zambri). O’Brien’s Pub, 3 Harvard Ave., Allston, 9 p.m., free,

Blues Halloween: Singing the blues? Then settle in for Lovewhip’s Erin Harpe and Jim Countryman, with Pete Weiss & the Weisstronauts. Rosebud Diner, 381 Summer St., Somerville, 9 p.m., $5,
