As usual they are likely to pull out all the stops to live up to their promise of "the full-on Halloween experience". I'm told there’s going to be a special spooky soundtrack, loads of decorations (including The Tunnel Of Terror), Halloween games, discounted entry if you’re dressed up, goody bags for the first 50 to arrive in fancy dress, prizes for the best costumes, a face painter, and free adult incontinence pads if things get just too exciting/terrifying! And if all that wasn’t enough, we will also be welcoming incredible special Guest DJs from beyond the grave - both Michael Jackson and Freddy Mercury shall be in attendance to share their record collections and meet their adoring public one last time!
In adition to those hijinxs there's the regular selection of cracking bands appearing.
Playing live this month (or "playing dead" rather, to fit the theme) are PopUp, Endor and The Social Services. We've caught both Endor and The Social Services recently and left pleased with what we've seen and heard, not to mention the excellent albums they've both released. It has been almost exactly two years since I last got to see PopUp though, back in the good old days when we had a pub in Paisley that put bands on, so it'll be very nice to see them again. You can get a sample of each of the bands down below.
Should be a frightfully good evening. Hey, if they can make bad puns, so can I.
