1. Broad Ripple Zombie Walk

Oct. 24, 5 p.m. Hungry for brainzzz!!! Celebrating its 10th birthday, the Broad Ripple Zombie Walk has become a tradition like no other. Last year saw more than 1,000 zombies collect 3,400+ canned goods —because they eat brainz —duh.

2. Indy Eleven vs. Fort Lauderdale Strikers

Oct. 24, 7:30 p.m. It's the final home game of the season for our beloved Indy Eleven. Put on an extra layer of clothing, your Eleven scarf, and sing your heart out in the BYB for the final time in 2015.

3. Cartoon Research Lab

Oct. 24, 11 a.m. Few things are better than an awesome breakfast and a healthy dosage of cartoons. You'll get to see pre-selected 20-30 minute sets of cartoon-related content. Plus food and coffee, as attendees are encouraged to bring bizarre breakfast dishes as well.

4. The Dozens

Oct. 24, 9 p.m. Tony Styxx hosts, Dicky Foxxx DJs and F.A.C.T.S., Fre$co, Fricktion, GRXZZ, Jo and Theon Lee feature at this hip-hop competition (NOT a battle, organizers note) where the winner gets a featured spot at the Rabbit’s quarterly Good Company Showcase. Did that sentence have enough details in there for you?

5. Heartland Film Festival Award Ceremony

Oct. 24, 8 p.m. This is really the pinnacle of Heartland. Filmmakers are honored for their hard work through the big announcements of who will take home checks ranging from $2,000 to $45,000. The awards are followed by an afterparty.

6. Gremlins

Oct. 23-34, 2, 7:30 p.m. This is a rare kind of horror story — one set during Christmas. It revolves around a young man who receives a strange present — a furry little creature called a “mogwai” that ends up spawning a batch of evil monsters. Written by Chris Columbus, produced by Steven Spielberg, and directed by Joe Dante, this film is an enchanting feat of fantasy.

7. Bill Burr

Oct. 24, 7 p.m. Your stomach will hurt from laughing and that isn't a bad thing.

8. Cherub

Oct. 23, 8 p.m. When we chatted with the electro-indie duo last year they had this to say about their tunes: “We have generally started to make it broad, feel good, pop music. People have a bad condensation with pop music because they think it’s hollow, manufactured and corporate. But to me a pop song is catchy lyrics; catchy melodies and something that makes you feel some type of way.” There’s no doubt they’ll play breakout hit “Doses and Mimosas” but be on the lookout for new tracks as well.

9. Headless Horseman

Oct. 23-24, 6-9 p.m. Take a haunted hayride. Enjoy a magic show. Eat a caramel apple and drink some warm cider. It's a spooky good time for the whole family at Haunted Scairie.

10. Indy Guitar Summit

Oct. 24, 7 p.m. Formed in 2002 by Bill Lancton, The Indianapolis Guitar Summit is an exciting, unique group of musicians. Consisting of five guitarists, plus bass and drums, the group presents an entertaining, energetic show, ranging from straight ahead jazz standards to Latin jazz and funk jazz. Although the repertoire is always evolving, expect tunes by Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery, Django Rheinhardt, Grant Green, Joni Mitchell, Thelonius Monk, and the Beatles, among many others.
