If you hate Halloween, you’ll be safe this Saturday at the debut of Chelsea Sound, the neighborhood’s art and music block party. It’s one of the few parties this weekend where costumes are not required. Thank you, Printed Matter, Eyebeam, Family Business, and Electronic Arts Intermix, the four non-profits taking part in this quad-party for giving an option to people who don’t feel like dressing up like pumpkins, sexy nurses, or Zombie Obama.

In case you don’t know anything about the dozens of artists involved with Chelsea Sound, we’ve picked out some choice tracks by each of the artists and musicians on YouTube (and Vimeo, since that’s how artists roll). Chelsea Sound wants to mix up the borders between music and art, so that alone is reason to go.
