2. Go trick or treating, nothing is better than free candy and showing off your costume to many people. Some good places to go trick or treating and test your luck to get some full size candy bars are Hollywood Hills, Eagle Rock, Beverly Hills, and Hancock Park.

3. Los Angeles Haunted Hay Ride, located in Griffith Park, is a place where you get to go through some spooky mazes and of course go on a hayride. Prices for tickets vary and it’s open from 7pm to 12 pm.

4. If you’re not into going out but still don’t want to miss out Halloween, stay in and have a movie marathon. Grab some snacks and some friends (or your pet) and binge watch some classic Halloween movies.

97. 1 AMP Radio’s 6th Annual We Can Survive Concert was held at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 20. The concert was held to support and help raise awareness for young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. At the concert, many artists attended such as Shawn Mendes, Marshmellow, Khalid, Charlie Puth, and much more.

All the artist that showed up teamed up to support the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), which is an organization that is dedicated to help support young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. They raised funds for this organization. Throughout the event, people were having fun and showed their support for breast cancer by wearing pink T-shirts, pink feather boas and dying pink streaks into their hairs. The event became a place for women and men to gather around to celebrate life, survival, and remember those lost in the fight.

The Hollywood Bowl along with LA City Officials had the streets closed from 5 pm to 10 pm since the concert began at 6:30 pm. Once the streets opened up, there was a traffic jam. The traffic began from around Sunset and Highland and continued until reaching the Hollywood Bowl. The concert was beneficial and helpful to many people in different ways.

The Space X Falcon 9 rocket launched Sunday night which caused a strange looking light into the nights sky. This may come as a shock to some people but these lights were not from any aliens or UFOs. According to the staff at Space X, The atmospheric conditions were the reason that this visual and stunning display lit up our sky. The two staged rocket blasted right on time at 7:21 pm PT from California’s Vandenberg Air Force base. Minutes after the launch, the rockets second stage separated from the first stage which is why you might have seen two bright white lights in the eye catching ”cloud”.

 

Social media immediately responded to this launch with pictures, videos, and conspiracy theories. For many people, this launch was unexpected and surprising. ”I was on the freeway when I first saw the launch,” said Cristian Huante, a senior in TCA. ”At first i thought we were going to get nuked.”

As Shawn Mendes preformed his single “Youth”  featuring Khalid on Sunday May 20 at the Billboard Music Awards, they did not fail to deliver the message of the song. The two talents sang alongside 12 members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student choir honoring the 10 victims of Friday’s school shooting in Sante Fe, Texas. Mendes states how “Youth” was written after the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, England last year in May. “I wanted to write something about it but it had to be about the feeling for us as a generation when one of these things happens. So I wrote a song about our youth, a feeling that can’t be taken away from us. It’s the most important song on the album” Mendes states.

Khalid wearing a “Protect our Guns” t-shirt with gun crossed out with the word “children” printed underneath and Mendes preaching the song he wrote “you can’t take my youth away, this soul of mine will never break.” Those 12 student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School being a voice for all the students who are fighting for a change. When the audience was shown, artist such as Halsey and Ne-yo were seen with great despair and all in the crowed were touched by the message that was being exclaimed in which is a plea to stand as one in the face of dashed hopes and violence. The audience payed great respect to the performance of the student choir and those 12 students are now the voice for all of the students pledging for a change.

Mendes a 19 year old who used his platform to spread a message, having victims of the Florida school shooting sing alongside him and Khalid in order for this message to be received. “Pain, but I won’t let it turn into hate” was sang around the arena in Los Vegas and it was then that the message of the youth was delivered.
