One More PA Roundhouse Rally, and Halloween Parties Begin This Weekend!

By October 22, 2021 Music

Here is a listing of area live music and online music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, October 15 through Thursday, October 21.

While many of the season’s fall festivals and outdoor concerts are winding down, the PA Roundhouse Rally presents one more event for the fall season this Saturday, as Felix & the Hurricanes and Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute act Green River take the Roundhouse stage. The Hurricanes play at 2 p.m., with Green River following at 5 p.m. Admission is free.

For those who missed both bands at the recent Flood City Music Festival in Johnstown, both The Desperadoes and FlowerChild team up for an encore performance on Friday evening at People’s Natural Gas Park in Johnstown. Both bands will play on the Oilhouse stage, with the Desperadoes leading off at 7 p.m.

And although Halloween officially happens next weekend, Halloween season starts to ramp up this weekend, with several live music-related Halloween happenings taking place around the area. See the listing below for more details.
