Halloweenus 2017

Ticket Link: https://lakeaffectstudios.yapsody.com/event/index/155771/halloweenus-2017

Ladies and Sirs, at long last our favorite event of the year is upon us. The time honored tradition of the Halloweenus Costume Party has returned to us just in time! What grotesque spectacles will we feast our eyes upon this fortnight? What wild and terrible freaks will we encounter on this dark morrow? Only those who dare brave the terrors of our ghastly warehouse will ever know, doomed to a fate of no return!

Among the bizarre wonders laid bare for you to consume:

MUSIC!
Jul Big Green
Urban Tropic
Theta Waves

ART!
Beautiful, Horrible, Fantastic. 
Michael Gezze presents works of art that terrify!

FARE!
Barrio Tacos will be on hand to offer provisions to weary travelers and keepers of the evening alike. 

Festivities:
8-11pm - Live music (3 bands -- TBD)
11-11:30pm - Brief Intermission
11:30pm-2am - Dance party with the infamous Vince Eso Manzano (DJ Eso)

The familiar amenities will be in place as per usual including the PressureLife Lounge, espresso bar, and delicious adult beverages. The extravagant, however, will too reveal itself on this evening. Our Photo Booth will be in full swing, with no expenses spared in frugality. Back from the grave is the famously beloved blow up jousting ring. Gentlemen of honor will have the chance to fight without recompense in the ring of glory once again, as had been the tradition of the ancients in ages past. No more will the torments of your foes go unchallenged!

In a culmination of pageantry, our annual costume contest will be announced promptly at the witching hour of midnight. As this is always an arduous battle of high sport, please be present if you want to win that shit.

Please be vigilant in your comings and goings on this event page; more circumstance regarding the happenings of this wondrous affair will be dispatched in due course...many announcements to come promptly!

As always, 21+ only. $10 @ the door, $8 online pre-sale.
