Ugly Food, Spooky Tunes And More This Week on BTRtoday

We’ve been rocking out this month so hard that we created a new name for it that’s never once been used by anyone else on the planet: rocktober.

It’s OK. Take a minute. Let the concept of “rocktober,” a month that rocks so hard it has the very word rock in its name, sink in.

So what kind of fiendish thrills inspired us to create such a word? A whole lot, like curating the indie world’s best  spooky tunes to bump on Halloween, putting fast food photos under the microscope and finding seasonal food options that are actually healthy to offset how hard you go into Halloween candy and Octoberfest. Or as we call it around here, “rocktober fest.” (Damn, that name is lit. So cool it’s our idea.)
