Your Virtual Halloween

Don't get too scared.

We put together a list of some frighteningly good Halloween shows happening virtually this year. Don't get too scared, they're just livestreams on your screen...or should we say SCREAM. (Some spoilers: Animal Collective, Purity Ring, Japanese Breakfast, GWAR, Ratboys, illuminati hotties and more!)

Ratboys are doing a big time Halloween Telethon to benefit the Equal Justice Initiative and Girls Rock! Chicago with livestreamed appearances by Charly Bliss, Wild Pink, illuminati hotties, The Beths, Diet Cig, Bartees Strange, Oceanator, Laura Stevenson and so many more.

The Fest (FL) virtual edition is happening on Halloween with Oceanator, Worriers, Teenage Halloween, awakebutstillinbed, Dikembe, Long Neck, Weakened Friends and LOTS more solid bands playing. Now you don't have to go to Gainesville.

Japanese Breakfast headlines House of Nod's Halloween Special on Let's go.

Pabllo Vittar's Halloween Club Night will feature spooky banging digital avatar sets by Purity Ring, Kim Petras, Ela Minus, Christine and the Queens and more to benefit NIVA (#SaveOurStages). RSVP.

There's a cool Halloween livestream coming up with a bunch of up-and-coming bands doing cover sets of their favorite artists, including heckdang covering PUP, Dikembe covering Fugazi, Oceanator covering Green Day and lots more punk funness.

Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn is throwing a "Halloween Punk Cover Gig" with members of MANY local bands performing the music of The Stooges, Ramones, Misfits, The Damned, Cocteau Twins and more.
