You can go pretty much anywhere on Halloween: a bar, your friend's house, even the local library if it's open. A lot of people go to Halloween concerts, which can range from cheesy to chill. But this year, why not go to one that promises a little bit of...theatricality?

ODESZA are atmospheric and sometimes otherwordly — grand and sweeping and fit for film soundtracks. Getting their start in the Seattle area in 2012, they surpassed 1 million plays on Soundcloud before ever releasing their EP. In the following years, they put out three studio albums and a whole mess of remix collections since breaking out a half-decade ago. THey've gone from being somewhat minimalist beats-makers to the lavish productions of their latest release, A Moment Apart, and have teamed up with vocal stars like Regina Spektor and Leon Bridges in projects past. Not bad for two college friends from Bellingham.

All this makes them a top-notch choice for your October 31 (also of note: They're named after a shipwreck, which we all know is prime restless-ghost territory). It's a little out of the way, but surely you can be convinced to take a road trip to Sacramento for a perfectly immersive spooky-scary celebration.

Currently on a world tour that's taking them across North American then on to Australia, they're stopping in Sacramento on All Hallow's Eve. Costumes (probably) encouraged.
