Best Shows This Week: October 25 – October 31, 2021

It’s Halloween Week in Los Angeles and it’s scary how many fun shows are scheduled. Dead & Company play three nights at Hollywood Bowl and Jonas Brothers have a night there. FINNEAS performs two nights at The Wiltern, Jungle take over two nights at The Greek and so does Greta Van Fleet, and Glass Animals delight for two shows at Santa Barbara Bowl. Escape Halloween has tricks up their sleeve at NOS Events Center with loads of electronic artists like The Chainsmokers, Baauer and Tchami, while Kaytranada plays a couple nights at Shrine Expo Hall. Elsewhere, Melanie Martinez is scheduled for a Halloween night show with UPSAHL, Mon Laferte haunts Noche de los Muertos at Hollywood Forever, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (live-to-film concert) spooks Banc of California Stadium for a couple nights with Danny Elfman, Billie Eilish and special guests, and Destructo wakes up the dead and DJs a special 6AM Sunrise Sermon at Avalon Hollywood.
