September is brooding in mysticism, satanism, crystal balls, black eyeliner, alien autopsies, quidditch, moonwalking, Murder, She Wrote … ummm, I may have added one too many eye of newt to my cauldron of booze.

DANCE

Aptly named, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company opens with “Fall Season,” an exhibition of choreography by three “kinetically charged” choreographers: Daniel Charon, Adam Barruch and Doug Varone. The show is a mixed bag of intensity, solitude, sensory overload and physical fluidity.

CONCERTS

Like their predecessor, Howard Jones, who was a pioneer in new wave and synthpop music in the 1980s, LDS heartthrob Brandon Flowers and the Aquabats bring their own styles of the genres — although the Aquabats add comedic antics and costumery … Holy Toledo, Batman! Among the grunge and punk rock music are the fabulous Babes in Toyland and The Home Team. Last but not least is country girl-turned-chic, Taylor Swift … shake it off gurl, there’s no shame in making your own clothes!
