5. Sith-Mas: Star Wars Christmas Cosplay Party
10 p.m., Friday, December 19, at District 15, 15 W. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. 21 and up. Visit Facebook.
May the force be with you this Friday at District 15's Sith-Mas event. The second annual Star Wars-themed Christmas party will feature dark beats spun by DJs LinderSMASH and Lorenzo DJ Kaos Fernandez and performaces by burlesque gals, hopefully all dressed like Princess Leia!

If Santa Claus and Darth Vader were able to procreate, this party would be their offspring. So what does one wear to this event? A sexy Santa suit with Darth Maul mask to confuse? Probably. We also like the idea of a Yoda adorned with Christmas lights and wreath hat.

5. Morally Suspect, Mentally Unhinged
7 p.m. Saturday, December 13, at UNIT 1, 1202 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth. No cover. Visit Facebook.

UNIT1 presents an art show this weekend that urges participants and artists to get in touch with their dark sides. The Facebook event page says artists will "unabashedly explore the extremities of human behavior" -- which sounds fun -- and uses word combos like "hallucinatory nightmares" and "bipolar media distraction machine." As part of that machine, we'd love to distract you from your mundane existence and direct you to this very cool Lake Worth hotspot on Saturday night for some serious artwork and serious socializing.

Noon, Saturday, November 22 to November 23, at Da Big Kahuna, 17 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Suite 308, Fort Lauderdale. Free with online registration or with a food donation. Visit Facebook.

The boys of Beach Place music festivals are back. Dave Neri and Colby Taylor are returning with over 12 hours of local live music in plenty of different genres for very cheap. You'll hear anything from hip-hop act Fresha Got The Kush to classic rock cover band Crush jamming out to Rush.

What makes this festival different from the rest is the fact that there will be a food donation for a Thanksgiving food drive. Oh, and if you're thinking of shaving that stache, don't. There will be a Stache Off with with prizes for the winner of the best mustache in honor of No Shave November, the huge viral campaign for men's health issues such as testicular and prostate cancer.

"It's extraordinarily important that we give to the community, and every child deserves food on their plate," says Taylor. In addition, there will be special promotion giveaways by Monster Energy Gaming and Grateful J's.

At least his hands will be clean for a high five! Art in Hollywood sounds like more fun than art anywhere else right about now.

Soul never dies. It lives in the dancing shoes of those who twirl to the sounds of Jerry Butler in homes and hidden dance spots worldwide.

In fact, a new Northern soul scene is flourishing right here at Lake Worth's Blue Front Bar-B-Que. The monthly dance party features limited release 45s of the '60s DJed by three fans of the genre. The kitchen stays open till 5 a.m., so after you sweat like James Brown, you can curb your hangover with some drunchies.

5. Boynton Beach's Anniversary Art Walk
6 p.m., Thursday, October 23, at Boynton Beach Live, 422 W. Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.

Boyton Beach Art District once again hosts its monthly art walk, but this weekend, there's something a little different. Its the event's fourth year anniversary and the final art walk of the year. Expect open studios, food trucks by Ps561, and live music by She's Neurotic, John Greco Band, and Montage.

If you miss it, you'll unfortunately have to wait till January 2015 when the party resumes with Art Synergy's Art Week 2015 in conjunction with Art Palm Beach. In other words, leave happy hour early to delve into a night full of quality local music and art. Hell, pour your leftover two-for-one drink in a flask if you have to. Just get BBAD tonight.
