(SANTA MONICA) September 10, 2013 –From circus troupes, costume contests and burlesque performers to food trucks, ghost stories, and five rooms pumping music, KCRW‘s annual benefit bash Masquerade goes far beyond a traditional dance party.
Brand new spectacles await revelers in our 5th year, including Harlow Gold’s vintage burlesque revue Blind Tiger, live screenprinting by Hit + Run, a Haunted Dancehall and more to delight the senses.
The party returns on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 9pm to 2am at the Park Plaza and tickets are on sale now. The event has sold out every year.
Tickets are $100 in advance. The event is 21 and over and proceeds support KCRW.
Music throughout the themed rooms will be provided by 16 of KCRW’s own skilled selectors, as well as Guest DJ sets from TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza and Detroit duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., mixing house and nu-disco.
Masquerade will also feature a live performance from playful provocateur Har Mar Superstar, as well as the dreamy electro sounds of Glasser and anthemic pop from one of LA’s best up and coming bands, Grizfolk.
Dub, reggae ska and more will fill the Haunted Dancehall thanks to a live set from The Lions and Dub Club‘s Tom Chasteen on the decks.
Traveling throughout the halls of the legendary venue will be the Angel City All-Star Brass Band, led by Todd Simon and paying homage to the roots of cumbia, afrobeat, soul and ethio-jazz, with some Halloween treats thrown in.
