You are cordially invited to Spookeasy HallowSwing Cabaret party on Friday Oct 25th A Prohibition-Era themed Halloween Party!

It’s time to heed the bell toll for ghastly, ghoulish and grim Halloween party at Electro Swing Club Vancouver.

At the Cabaret room:

Every time the Tim Sars Band plays a show, they know it might be their last. While the band is swingin' hot, the lyric's always seem to go to the dark side. The very talented Brendan Krieg on drums and vocals, Roisin Adams on piano and vocals, and Russell Sholberg on bass are complicit in Tim's evil musical plot, and those on the dance floor shall be the victims.

During Tim Sars Band set we'll have a Hot Beat Swing Dance and Black Bottom Stomp performances.

Sultry, spooky burlesque by Velvet von Doff

SideShow by Kata Sita - Sword Swallowing, Human BlockHead, Bug eating and more... If this performance doesn't give you goosebumps nothing will!!!

Frightening Circus Performance

Hunted Go-Go Flapper Girls

VooDoo DJs: From Montreal' Speakeasy Electro Swing gang Eliazar Hason. From the Island - AppleCat and local crew' Rudy & Phucian.

At Hideaway room we'll have 3 bands: The Creaking Planks, Meg A Tron and Sound Architecture.

The jug band of the damned, the Creaking Planks, salvage festering songs from the mass grave of popular music, binding their festering choruses together with a thread spun from extinct instruments, making them move once again by perversely introducing the strange spark of life.

At the Tiki room - bad boys SideShow, Doe Ran and DJ Spaz They're guaranteed to rattle your bones…and reanimate your zombie hearts…it won’t mean a thing until the zombies start to swing!

Also expect the visuals to captivate and twist your mind with images from the past and future blended together in one cocktail.

The jug band of the damned! Drawing on numerous and disparate naive, folk and outsider musical traditions, the common thread running through the performers in this ensemble is that individually, none of them belong in a contemporary musical context – while together, their sum suggests nothing stranger than the iPod of 1906.

Storyteller, beat weaver, poet, and vocalist, AppleCat was raised on the West Coast of Canada. Music is her number one passion since they day she was born. Poetry and grace, mixed with live mashup, reworking and mixed tempo sets bending the perception of "genre" and blending sweet melody, dirty deep bass with a little "je ne sais quoi."
