Monster Mosh a Basement Smash
Kick off the Halloween festivities at BT
Saturday, Oct. 12
Spooky season is finally upon us and to kick off the Halloween festivities, Basement Transmissions (BT) is hosting their second annual "Monster Mosh."
Robert Jensen, owner/operator of BT explains that "this event has several aspects that will make it spooktacular. First off we have a killer lineup and secondly, we are giving out a $200 cash prize to the best costume. I expect some of the most creative costumes ever for such a nice prize and no one should miss it!"
This one-of-a-kind, mixed genre show has something for all ages. Early guests to the show will have the opportunity to carve pumpkins with (almost) real life monsters from Erie's only haunted house, Eeriebyss Factory of Terror. Throughout the night, local musicians such as Wave Trails, Wasted Info, Shattered Utopia, Fill in the Blank, Jordy the Traveler and K-Nasty will provide the tunes.
Jordy the Traveler, a seasoned performer at BT says, "I'm always excited to be at BT. Everyone can dress up for this event so bring your costumes and look forward to me changing your life with my music!"
The costume contest will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges including Jensen, Matty Symmons, Michael Bennet of "Fazed Cookies," (Erie Reader managing editor) Nick Warren, and myself, who will determine the winner of the $200 cash prize for best costume.
BT's Art Club with be in attendance featuring their Dark Art Exhibition for eye candy and have invited Naomi Mecci to read tarot cards in order to raise money to support the club. Adult cocktails for 21+ patrons will be on hand courtesy of Voodoo Brewery and spooky snacks will fuel everyone in order to keep the night alive.
So if you're a Halloween lover, Jensen encourages guests to attend, saying, "get dressed up and come hang out with all the rest of the monsters in this town!" — Symone Crockett
