Rumored to be haunted, American Legion Hall Hollywood Post 43 is perhaps the most perfect locale in the area to host a Halloween party. One of the oldest (100 this year) and most cavernous buildings in Los Angeles, it should make for a spooky backdrop to the Legion’s Post 43 Halloween Bash, featuring “scaryoke,” a magic show by Michael Vile, a haunted house and live music. The band bill should be the highlight of the night, with the Post 43 Outlaws, local indie rockers Kideyes and the audacious musical hit homages of Black Crystal Wolf Kids. Led by journalist and rocker Jeff Miller, BCWK always bring it and this set — done in full costume — promises modern rock hits (sing-alongs with everything from Arcade Fire to Talking Heads to Lizzo) interspersed with Halloween classics. The boo-gie bash is one of only a few events open to the public at the historic venue so it’s a rare opportunity to see all its spooky splendor.
American Legion Post 43, 2035 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood; Thu., Oct. 31, 8 p.m.-1:30 a.m.; $10, 21+ only (military and vets free). facebook.com/events/419826845392554/.
