For centuries Halloween has been a yearly tradition of guising, tomfoolery, and a celebration of the damned. However it’s now 2013 and we have grown up. Halloween is less about the pillow cases full of sweets and more about clever costumes and amazing parties. Here is a breakdown of where to go party on Halloween in Montreal…
Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Ball: Hands on your hips, pull your knees in tight, then pelvic thrust into the night! The classical soirée is hosted by PLASTIK PATRIK at the stunning Cinema Imperial near Place des Arts from October 31 to November 2, 2013. It will be an unforgettable evening of corset-fish-net debauchery!
Halloween Party at SAT’s Satosphere: The SAT (1201 Saint-Laurent Blvd) has a very cool video dome called the Satosphere. On November 1, it’s where you’ll find one of the coolest Halloween parties in town. Immersive visuals by United VJs, RFID, and Azyl will be projected onto the dome, while Poirier, Prison Garde, and Jake Williams make music. More details here.
Veuve Clicquot presents Yelloween at New City Gas: Definitely one of the fancier Halloween parties happening in the city, Veuve Clicquot will be presenting “Yelloween” with world famous DJ Erick Morillo at New City Gas.
