A marvellous and mysterious event...a Halloween celebration of the extravagant and the grotesque...an all-night spectacle of atmosphere, costumery and diverse entertainments...an explosion of live music, dancing, circus arts, and late-night revelry, snake-charmed into an absinthe-fueled early-morning speakeasy.
Featuring live, 9pm-12am: back from over a year of touring his hit circus show LIMBO, circus composer Sxip Shirey with a handpicked Jank! band. French brass band Radio Kaizman, rocking their special blend of hip hop, New Orleans brass and Latin rhythms. Bloody burlesque by Minx Arcana. Fire sorcery by Tara McManus. Aerial artistry by Emelie Sandberg. Demonic dance floor by G&S favorites Joro Boro and DJ Shakey 12am-3am, slinking into sexy lounge mode after with DJ Reaganomics. Frighteningly accurate fortunes told by witchy mistress Marcy Currier. Dark visuals by VJ Fuzzy Bastard. Haunted forest lounge. Absinthe and other mind-altering potions by The House of St Eve (yes, t.h.o.s.e. cocktails).
*An additional $30 gets you a commemorative Masquerade Macabre hip flask engraved with the monster hybrid Victorian couple from the event flyer.
Inspiration: macabre carnival, aberrations of nature, cabinet of curiosities, dark Victoriana, evil funhouse, steampunk, Jan Svankmaier & Brothers Quay films, Freaks, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Think dark & creepy. Or dark & funny. Or whatever your Halloween costume happens to be. But if we have to ask, it's not a costume.
