With all the eccentric personalities and fashion choices that make San Francisco kooky and unique, Halloween would seems like an everyday occurrence -- but there is a certain energy that comes with the impending fall season that causes the spirit to pop like caramel corn.

If the season doesn't make you too jumpy -- then you might just have the nerve to go on a ghost tour.

The Oakland Aviation Museum will host a special edition of their regular after-dark "flashlight" tours, focusing on ghost stories and paranormal activities surrounding the museum. This special, one-night-only, tour will be conducted by Ellis Byrd, an author and paranormal investigator, in a partnership with Jennifer Hosel, investigator and host of the USS Hornet.

Byrd has worked in the field of paranormal promotions for more than 10 years and has appeared on nationally syndicated shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. According to Byrd, this is a great way for people on a budget to experience and witness what they've seen on paranormal shows like the ones he's been featured on.

That's right, ever doubted the authenticity of the people on Ghost Hunters? Well, now you'll be able to see for yourself, once and for all, if it's really the paranormal or just the wind.

What: Oakland Aviation Museum's Flashlight Tours: Paranormal Edition

When: Sept. 20, 8-10 p.m.

Where: 8252 Earhart Rd., Oakland

Price: $11 with reservation, (510) 638-7100, $12 at the door. Children under 18 are $10.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
