Halloween is almost here, and we’re getting ready to celebrate, horror-style. Join us for this special event where we team up with our fellow horror and dark-minded groups here in Austin: Austin Horror Society, Austin Witches Circle, Blood Over Texas, Other Worlds Austin and Zombie Life.
Our 2nd annual Halloween party — made by horror fans for horror fans —promises a night of tricks and treats for you horror hounds. The night will be possessed by haunting music provided by DJ Dren Pasht — gothic, witchwave, industrial, new wave and general spooky cool sounds to make you shake your bones.
There will be an devious horror-inspired performance set by some of Austin’s best: Ruby Lamb (The Jigglewatts Burlesque Review, Satan’s Cheerleaders), Gemmi Galatic (Frisky Business Burlesque, Geekgasm Review), Honey St. Claire, (multiple drag reviews) Juan Martinez (Sinister Hand Studios & sideshow) and MC’d by the magical John Maverick, costume contest.
After the sinful spectacle, a chosen few will compete in a costume contest to will a prize package of treasures and, of course, bragging rights. The contest was so epic last year that, to save time, we will be walking through the crowd to nominate creatures for the costume contest. Those nominees will enter the contest in one of three categories: Best Couple, Scariest and Most Original.
Among the creatures of the night, stop by and talk with our Tarot Card Reader, Andrea of Mystic Starlight Tarot. She’ll also have some horns available for purchase if you want to step up your sparkle demon game. And before the night is over, you can take pics in our horrific photo booth to impress your friends and family!
We know there is a lot to do this wicked weekend, but we hope you make this event a stop on your list, or better yet, the one and only stop for the night. You know how we do it. Long live horror!
