Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to get in the spooky spirit than to hear a ton of buzz-worthy bands sing some eerie songs of murder and mystery? Hosted by the New L.A. Film Festival, L.A. Record and Grand Ole Echo, The Return of Murder Ballads is “a tribute to timeless songs about killers, scorned lovers, & evil doers”, and features bands such as The Americans, A/J Jackson of Saint Motel, Correatown, and The Damselles & the TC4 (full line-up below). Trust me, this sounds way better than going to see Paranormal Activity 3 or something generic (read: not as cool) like that – and no nightmares/sleeping with the lights on afterwards either.
