Halloween is a greatly anticipated even at Dope Jams, (“Halloween is New Year’s on the Dope Jam calendar”) and they plan to party. In costume. Like deranged crazy mad men (and not the Mad Men on TV).
So head on down to 580 Myrtle Ave on Saturday Oct 30th for Dope Jam’s annual Halloween Costume Ball of “massive hedonistic proportions.”
Their flyer would seem to be in danger of over hyping the event and giving potential attendees an unrealistic expectation. All indications are, however, that the Dope Jam guys will not disappoint.
“Literally all of the store’s energies, hopes, aspirations and exertions are stored in reserve for this one day.” They further promise to discard “moderation, decency, respectability and all fundamental norms of social acceptance.”
So be warned, this is not for the faint of heart or those who otherwise highly value moderation, decency, respectability and fundamental norms of social acceptance. And don’t even think of going without a costume. You will likely be shunned and possibly thrown to the zombies to be eaten alive.
Music is said to include “the spookiest, most spine tingling salutation to the dark spirits of house music yet.”
Earlier in the evening, from 5 to 8 pm, the store will even be open for a more family friendly Haunted House, although don’t expect this to be a fun Snoopy, Disney, Mickey Mouse type of haunted house, no. Think something more like creepy “fun house mirrors” with “stretched out faces [that] yell from behind flaming curtains.”
Basically, its going to be one hell of a Halloween Party.
