Halloweird is a combo variety show/costume party and very grown-ups-night-out on Friday, Oct. 27 at the Mystic Theater in Petaluma.
Boasting a wide array of acts such as comedians, pole dancers, drag queens and masters of the macabre, Halloweird sprang from the mind of North Bay Events proprietor Jake Ward, who most recently pulled off a burlesque themed party on May 4 (ie; “Star Wars Day,” as in…May the 4th Be With You…) at the Mystic. The Halloweird lineup looks like it too will push the boundaries of adult entertainment to fun yet extreme heights.
Billed as “A Halloween extravaganza like no other,” some highlights of the evening are set to include:
- Award winning filmmaker, slam poet, activist and fiery ringmaster Jamie Dewolf, who the San Francisco Chronicle called “a high-octane mix of the profane and the profound.”
- Professional neo-traditional “shocklesque” and fire dancer Roxy Mirage (formerly known as Afina Flint), who blends risqué burlesque with dance, storytelling and what they call “unique prop elements” in their performance.
- Up and coming TikToker Grawlix the Clown, who self-describes as “not your child’s party clown” on said TikTok page.
- One-woman ukulele songstress Karenna Slade, whose YouTube channel boasts original songs with titles like “The What If?” and “Slam the Door,” as well as fun covers of hits like Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” and Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’ Dirty.”
- Torture revivalist and sideshow survivalist Charlie Pain and Oakland’s “pussy stunt artist” (further description not completely appropriate for Bohemian readers of all-ages) Max Mad Madame set to bring the pain.
- Semi pro “classique” pole theater performer Cezar Lopez, will be on hand to entertain with Sonoma County drag queen Frida Whales, who is known for their dance and karaoke performances.
Plus, there will be many more artists of various trades, backgrounds and zaniness.
At this point, perhaps one is asking if this is simply a passive event where the audience sits and watches. The answer to that is a ghastly “No!” After the show, Halloweird will potentially keep getting stranger with a dance party that goes late into the night and features DJs Dyops and Die Wies.
Tickets range from upper tier VIP tables at $400 for four people and $200 for two people, premium tables for two at $175, gold circle seated tickets at $44 each and reserve seats at $34 each, as well as $29 balcony reserved seats.
