Halloween: Built to Spill, Black Girls, Former Champions, Trongone Band

Looking for some rock n' roll on Halloween? Well, there's a lot of it going on.

Indie pop rockers Built to Spill will be at The Canal Club Thursday night. It'll be $25 to get in. Slam Dunk, Genders and The Warm Hair will open. Doors will open at 7 PM. There will be a costume contest and free giveaways. Doug Martsch of Built to Spill will do a DJ set after the show which you can stick around for. Here's the band in Hamburg this year playing "Goin' Against Your Mind":

Black Girls will get super freaky at Balliceaux on Halloween. It'll be $5 to get in and the show starts at 10.

Former Champions will be joined by members of Silo Effect at The Camel for a Halloween jamtronica extravaganza. There will be a costume contest, vendors, live painters and the Champs are promising some surprises. Should get crazy. Music starts at 9 PM.  Here's Former Champions doing "Song 7" at The National in March:

If you like to celebrate your Halloween in classic rock style, head to Cary St. Cafe for Trongone Band. There will be a costume contest and there is no cover charge. Music starts around 10 PM with Barrelhouse. Trongone Band will don their musical costume at 11:15 PM by doing Widespread Panic's Jackassolantern album in its entirety which has no original Widespread Panic songs on it. Then Trongone Band, Barrelhouse and special guests will jam the night away.

More on the rest of the weekend's events tomorrow. For your Halloween pleasure, here's Phish doing "Ghost" a few days ago in Worcester MA:
