MaMA Festival, put on by Paris Bouge, is coming October 14 – 16 and Pitchfork’s weekend falls over Halloween, beginning with concerts and Klin d’Oeil show in the Grande Halle at La Villette on the 29th. I’m most looking forward to catching the Thursday and Friday shows, especially Thom Yorke, Beach House, and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

The weekend of October 17 – 18 is for stocking up on those cozy fall wares thanks to the Salon du Vintage at Le Carreau du Temple. Because there are few better ways to spend a cool weekend afternoon than doing a little seasonal shopping, from a 70s-inspired wool trench to a unique boot to carry you into winter.
