Halloween is, by far, my favorite Holiday. The problem with Halloween is it comes to a screeching halt at 12:01am November 1st, which is supremely unfair. After all, Christmas starts rearing its garishly ugly head sometime around August, and doesn’t peter out till around February 5. Hell, it would go a bit longer than that, if it weren’t for Hallmark and Brach’s candy doing their utmost darnedest to inflict Valentine’s Day on the huddled masses.
With this in mind, I’ve decided to extend Halloween. No longer is it on October 31st. It lasts through the entire month of October, and runs a few random days in the middle of the Summer for good measure.
I have played music for folks at the Village of Nyght for around five years now, and I’ve become good friends with the owner of the Dunwich sim. She trusts my judgment and welcomes some of my ideas. One of those ideas was to make sure Halloween got its due from our horrifying Lovecraft sim with not just one Halloween party, but LOTS of Halloween parties.
Tonight (Saturday, Oct. 20) is the Grand daddy of all Halloween parties, since we have two disc jockeys at the helm, and a whole metric buttload of stores giving away some great prizes throughout the night. The short list: Avatar Bizarre, Perceptions, Immateria, Dubious Armoire, Tear, and more.
Don’t worry. If you missed it tonight, there will be other parties. In the meantime, here’s my set list with * denoting a request.
