It feels like there are a ton of great Halloween live music options this year. Here are a few of the highlights:

LoveLikeFire and Loquat at Bottom of the Hill. Two quality indie pop bands and a bunch of DJs add up to a good night.

– Looking for covers? Most of Citay will be at Amnesia, performing as “Bob Saggath”. Unclear if there will be Full House-related costumes, but there will be Sabbath covers.

– The always-reliable Wallpaper. plays at the Mezzanine. “Holla-Ween” also includes a $1,000 dollar costume contest.
