If you are one of those people who expects spooky things to occur on Friday the 13th, you must be extra excited knowing that we'll also have a full moon that night, the first time that has happened since the year 2000. It's the perfect day, then, for ROW DTLA (the massive complex in the heart of Downtown that combines artist spaces, event venues, offices, shopping and dining) to host Haus of Creep. The event is being billed as a multi-sensory art exhibit that immerses guests in a bizarre and shocking world where reality and performance art blur together. If you do an early version of the event you can walk down the street afterwards and see the 1980 classic slasher flick, "Friday the 13th" at the LEVEL complex. 

It's expected to be a warm, clear night Friday so you'll probably want to be outside at some point to view the Harvest Moon. We housesellers think a good bet would be heading to the Hollywood Bowl to see legendary funk, soul and R&B band Earth, Wind & Fire and the huge fireworks display that will follow. September is always a great month to see a show at the Bowl and you can be sure the band will play "September", one of their biggest hits, as they join up with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. If you are a fan of southern rock, the LA County Fair in Pomona hosts a concert with 38 Special, the Marshall Tucker band and the Outlaws—music pretty much made to listen to under a Harvest Moon. Venice Beach, of all places, is celebrating the Harvest Moon with a free pop-up event sponsored by Bare Snacks happening this Friday through Sunday that brings the kind of Fall we don't have here in Los Angeles, and it will include apple picking, playing in leaf piles, Autumn arts & crafts and more.

If you are someone who suffers from paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th), National Geographic reports that experts say people may actually be safer on this infamous day, despite long-held beliefs of gloom and doom. People often avoid dangerous activities on Friday the 13th, or take extra care to make sure they are well prepared for problems, and these superstitions are attempts to understand and even control fate in an uncertain world. BTW, the trepidation surrounding Friday the 13th is rooted in religious beliefs surrounding the 13th guest at the Last Supper—Judas, the apostle said to have betrayed Jesus—and the crucifixion of Jesus on a Friday, which was known as hangman's day and was already a source of anxiety.
