Mustachio Bashio at Silverton Silverton also gets in on the facial-hair action with its annual Mustachio Bashio, complete with the naming of Mr. Stash 2012, who takes home $1K for the fur on his face. The Saturday night party includes karaoke, a beer pong tournament (with a $1K first prize) and a mashed potato-eating contest, because ... well, we honestly have no idea. November 17, 6 p.m., free entry.
Kaskade at Marquee The EDM DJ/producer has had a big 2012, playing Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival and embarking on his ambitious, 70-plus date “Freaks of Nature” summer tour.
