Summer is over, and the Autumnal Equinox is ushering in all the trappings of fall—pumpkins and fake seasonal produce lining front porches, sweaters and flannel, etc.—as well as (no, it’s not too early) Halloween. The organizers of a party tonight at Joe Squared are celebrating the changing of the seasons with a funky masquerade party.

The affair, dubbed “The Masked Equinox” and planned by musical community 4our Flights Up and female artist collective Fem Co-Operation, encourages “costume and finery” for all attending. Those who aren’t equipped can get their masks painted right onto their mug with a hand from face-painting artist Lindsay Parker.

The night will have a varied soundtrack, with live music from electric cellist and singer AxixA, foul-sunk group The Rhythm Remains, rock trio Triple Stone Threat and others. It’ll also feature mystical activities like like tarot readings and a singing bowl meditation led by folks from the Baltimore Drum Church. Basically, things could get weird, in a good way.

And what’s more, it’s all to benefit My Sister’s Place Women’s Shelter. Accepted donations (which can also substitute for admission) include canned goods, travel-sized toiletries, cleaning supplies, cereal bars and more. Check the full list here.

8 p.m.-1 a.m., Joe Squared, 33 W. North Ave., Facebook event, (410) 545-0444, $5 or free admission with donation.
