**Press on Masquerade 2011**
“KCRW’s annual Masquerade party has pretty much become the go-to Halloween event of choice here in LA.” – Media Bistro
“This year’s KCRW Ball may have come the closest one can get to the experience of William Randolph’s famed costume parties at the Hearst Castle during the decadent 1920’s. No matter which way you looked, there was no shortage of jaw dropping transformative wonder.” – LA Record.
“Between the DJ sets, stilt walkers, late-night snack options, and festive decorations, KCRW’s annual Halloween costume ball, Masquerade, was a hit.” – LA Magazine
“The sold out party was stuffed to the brim with those who were dressed to impress, varying from Puritan to exhibitionist and everything in between. The real focus of the evening was, however, the music.” – LA Weekly
