Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 10/31-11/6

The best Halloween concert is one that does more than merely dress up a band to play an otherwise ordinary show. I’ve been to a few memorable themed shows (Nico Vega’s Witch Hunt comes quickly to mind), and last week seeing the gents of Dear Boy break their typically unyielding mold in the spirit of Halloween will be added to that list.  I guess there is something about wearing skeleton onesies that inspires a musical freedom complete with instrument swapping and the covering of punk rock songs with abandon.

Next week brings with it a new month and several exciting bands from overseas. Top on my list are Walking On Cars and the combo of The Hunna and The Struts who will be sure to dominate the stage of The Fonda Thursday night.
