Spend Halloween Weekend in the Basement of Terror
Do the dance of the dead to some local metal
SATURDAY, OCT. 28
Time to let your inner demon loose at the second annual Basement of Terror this Halloween weekend at Basement Transmissions. The event is hosted by Odd Atrocity and artist Marvin's Chair — they plan to scare up some of their favorite local metal bands to be the soundtrack for the evening. In between performances from these titans of terror, all you groovy ghoulies will be able to dance to the music of MC/DJ Lone Sav. While enjoying the music, plan to conjure up some unique gifts from many of the vendors that will be on hand, and pick your poison from the beverages provided by Erie Ale Works.
Stirring the cauldron of sound this evening will be post grunge/metal band Odd Atrocity, as well as lead vocalist Cy Eihwaz's newest project, Isle of Dread. The latter has a heavier sound, but continues to rock with the same melodic harmonies as Odd Atrocity and also features members of Grim Grin. Local metal from Fastfall and Amavasya will be sure to rattle your bones. Creeping up from south of I-90 will be Meadville's Myconaut. And dragging themselves all the way from the yuck-eye state will be Dead Cassette from Northeast Ohio, who will play metalcore that will melt your face faster than Tarman in Return of the Living Dead.
Even though there will be plenty of tricks and treats, this event is only open to those who are 18 and over. There will be a costume contest with prizes that will reward those for the funniest, scariest, cutest, and most creative costumes. So, grow some fangs and don't tell your Mummy how late you will be out, because the Basement of Terror will take you into the witching hour… if you dare!
