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. Hosted by twisted maniac Baron von Doom. Demonic dance floor by DJ Joro Boro. Fantastical face & body painting by Painteresse Elyzabeth. Frighteningly accurate fortunes told by practitioners of the occult arts. 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.

- A "hybrid of Appalachian front porch simplicity delivered with edgy punk rock power," The Hackensaw Boys have been tearing it up for over a decade now. They've toured with the Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse and Cake and backed up country legend Charlie Louvin' and now they're gearing up to blast a hole in the atmosphere at this year's Boograss Spooktacular. www.hackensawboys.com
*Morgan O'Kane is a regular modern day Woody Guthrie, having earned his stripes as a banjo player and street punk activist by busking his way around the country. These days he's set up camp in Williamsburg and brings his raucous blend of traditional stylings and modern gumption to the good people of Brooklyn. Prepare to be amazed. www.morganokanemusic.com

- Award winning fiddler Melody Allegra Berger has been playing violin since the age of five and is classically trained in both violin and voice. She fell in love with bluegrass/old time music around 8 years ago and has been raising a ruckus in the NYC area ever since. In addition to regularly playing at regional favorites, Melody has gotten to rock out at places like the top of Rockefeller Center, the Lincoln Center Atrium and the renowned Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. She's joined for this show by an all star band of monsters, including Paul Kowert on bass (Punch Brothers), Jordan Tice on guitar, and Bennett Sullivan on banjo.
www.melodyallegra.com Expect smokin' fiddlin' and gritty soulful vocals.

- Seth Kessel and the Two Cent Jazz Band's original compositions are planted firmly in the rich tradition of American folk music with hints of over-seas influences including Django Reinhardt and Klezmer. Their sound is power-fueled yet danceable—punk energy is added to the already impressively blazing gypsy jazz guitar licks and romping second-line New Orleans horn parts. The evolution of great traditional music continues on with this one-of-a-kind Brooklyn band of troubadours. www.sethkessel.com

- Union Street Preservation Society Hailed by Glide Magazine as "tasty and alive" with "brisk, flavorful improvisation," USPS is fast emerging as an Americana favorite in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. They've shared the stage with nationally prominent acts like The Andy Statman Trio, Greensky Bluegrass, Cornmeal and Max Creek, and make regular appearances at New York's most prominent venues. Down Home Goodness Done Right. www.unionstreetpreservationsociety.com

- Barefoot & Bankside is a music project built around the songwriting & vocal stylings of Jamey "Brother" Hamm & Amanda Neill. Born & raised true southerners from Alabama & Tennessee, these two genuinely blend the familiar sounds of classic country music, gospel and even a little alternative/southern rock. www.barefootandbankside.com
