Trick Or Treat Weekend!

Here is a listing of Altoona area live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, Oct. 27 through Thursday, Nov. 2.

Halloween season is upon us, and lots of Halloween-themed parties and events take place throughout the area live music scene this weekend. See the listing below for the details, break out your best Halloween get-up, and have fun!

For outdoor shows, in the event of inclement weather, please call or use social media to check ahead to make sure the show is still taking place, especially if you are driving any distance to attend.
