It’s a night that seems tailor-made for your Austin Music Minute maven, who typically sends off non-suspecting listeners with this fond farewell in the afternoons: “Don’t behave…”
Back in the day, October 30th was commonly known as Devil’s Night, a night of mischief and outrageous behavior. From this inspired moment of history, Cheer Up Charlie‘s is presenting Happy Hell Night, a devilishly bawdy bash with a line-up of AMM favorites.
Your lovely ghost host (check that reference, fool!) for the occasion is the divine Caleb De Casper, bringing you glamour horror, dark art and high octane energy to rev your haunted spirit. Playing some scary good sets: A band making its ghastly return in (mostly) human form, The Gory Details (featured on today’s AMM); a magnificent mash of darkwave, post-punk and the perfect touch of goth, Slaughterstein; and an otherworldly cosmic blast of rock with Suspirians.
Your AMM host is positively drooling. Fangs bared. Doors open at 9 p.m., and costumes are absolutely encouraged. Very recommended.
