4 costumes, 3 days. Halloween was jam packed with parties!

In the words of the Geto Boys, “this year Halloween fell on a weekend” and parties took over the city for three solid days. Friday night, I performed to a packed house with The Spinderellas at Exit/in for Girlie Ghouls A Go Go. Afterwards, we headed to Cannery Row/Mercy Lounge were thousands came out for Metromix’s Freaky Friday Halloween Party. Guilty Pleasures performed, along with My So-Called Band, Glam Hammer and Yacht Rock Review. It was a blast as folks danced nonstop to the old school jams.

Saturday night, The Spinderellas performed at McFaddens for their Halloween “Freak Show.” The club was packed with scantily clad dancing ladies. Music City Burlesque‘s Belle Bombshell and Miss Kitti Lee were among the performers. As the evening’s host, Intern Adam (dressed as Tom Cruise in Risky Business) did a great job keeping the crowd rowdy.

We then made our way over to Mai for the Second Annual Haunted Valley Block Party. Ying Yang Twins (“Get Low”, “Salt Shaker”), Luna Halo, Coach, Hands off Sam, Space Capone, Majestico & more took over the stage that lined the street between Mai and 12th & Porter. The production was top notch as it included over 70 intelligent lights and a massive 40 foot LED video wall. Basil Marceaux and Tex Rambuctious hosted the party, which drew thousands. My girls and I dressed as Mrs. Mint, Princess Lolly & Queen Frostine from the game Candyland, but my pal Matt Gale stole most of the attention as a walking post-it note.

Hands down, Mai was the place to be all weekend. The club succeeded with yet another huge bash Sunday night for Girl Talk. Gregg Gillis didn’t disappoint with awesome dance beats, flying toilet paper and confetti guns. The DJ approached the stage as Freddy Kruegar, tore a baby doll up and proceeded to rock the crowd for about an hour. He stuck around and partied at Mai until the wee hours of the morning.

I’m not sure how I managed to dress up again, but it was fun. I even made it to The Slaughter House before catching Girl Talk. Here’s to hoping next year will be just as awesome!
