Rocktober Fest, MSC Town Hall’s annual Halloween celebration, will be held on Friday, Oct. 30, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in Kyle Field Plaza. The local funk-fusion band, The Nomads, will be performing their blend of jazz, pop and funk music for the Texas A&M community. Attendees will also have the opportunity to carve pumpkins.

Protocols are in place to ensure a safe and healthy event for everyone. All participants must follow university guidelines related to face-coverings and social distancing.

MSC Town Hall has brought hundreds of live music acts to the Texas A&M community since the student organization was formed in 1951. This is the second time The Nomads have performed in an MSC Town Hall concert.

“The band has 8 members – all students,” said MSC Town Hall Executive Director Clarissa Carrasco ‘21. “They just play a bunch of different instruments and types of music, so we know they’ll be a crowd-pleaser.”

People interested in carving pumpkins at the event must RSVP. Pumpkins are $5 and there is a limited supply.

Everyone carving pumpkins will be assigned to a 10-foot by 10-foot tarp and given carving tools. These tarps will be appropriately spaced to promote social distancing, and the carving tools will not be shared between groups.

The concert will be live-streamed on the MSC Town Hall Instagram account.
