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: back from a hit season of LIMBO at London's South Bank Center, circus composer Sxip Shirey with beatboxer Adam Matta and other special guests (his only NYC show!).  Mind-blowing hip-hop brass band Pitchblak. Dark burlesque by Kat Mon Dieu and Jo Boobs. Hosted by twisted maniac Zeroboy as Baron von Doom. Demonic dance floor by DJs Joro Boro & Reaganomics. Fantastical face & body painting by Painteresse Elyzabeth. Frighteningly accurate fortunes told by practitioners of the occult arts. Scary and exhilarating vacuum-packing experience by Monsieurpolo. Absinthe and other mind-altering potions by The House of St Eve (yes, t.h.o.s.e. cocktails). Cheap drink specials all night with crazy maple pecan bourbon William Wolf.

*An additional $30 gets you a commemorative Masquerade Macabre hip flask engraved with the monster hybrid Victorian couple from the event flyer.

Costumes required:
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.
