Halloween all week long at Columbia City Theater


Halloween is our favorite time of year. We'll be celebrating six nights straight with performances by The Bushwick Book Club (presenting original songs inspired by The Shining), two CD releases, a psycedelic celebration with Wild Orchid Children and the 8th Annual Cabaret Macabre with The Bad Things, Baby Gramps and more.

The Bushwick Book Club Presents Original Songs Inspired by Stephen King's The Shining

  • Thursday, October 27, 2011 - 8pm, $10 in advance or $12 at the Door

A maze of a hotel. An actual maze. A little boy lost. Insanity. Creepy Twins. Waves of Blood. Ghost Bartenders. Severe Writer's Block. Redrum. There's plenty of inspiration and interesting songs to be found within these plot points and The Bushwick Book Club will do all that and more when they share original songs inspired by The Shining on October 27th during their first visit to Columbia City Theater. A little bit about Bushwick Book Club: "The Bushwick Book Club is not your run of the mill book club. Much like any, we act upon the urge to read and to have discussions about what we read. But we found that this was not enough for us. When we read books, we also want to write songs about them. And when we write songs, we like to perform them for an audience. So we booked a show, and now all we need is for you to come join us in reading the book of the month!"

Western Haunts (CD Release Party), The Legendary Oaks, and Jon Pontrello (Moondoggies)

  • Friday October 28 at 9pm, $8

Jack Wilson, Tony Kevin Jr., Sebastian & The Deep Blue (CD Release)

Wild Orchid Children, This Bitch Don't Fall Off and Los Headaches (from Mexico City)

  • Sunday, October 30, 2011 - 8pm / $9

Unfortunately Halloween falls on a Monday this year, fortunately that means you have an entire weekend to celebrate and a pretty good excuse (in our opinion) to call in sick on Monday. And you'll probably have to after partying with Wild Orchid Children, This Bitch Don't Fall Off and Los Headaches (all the way from Mexico City) on Sunday night. Wild Orchid Children have promised to get extra weird for their Halloween set and considering the potency of their psychedelia already, its gonna be one hell of a party.

The 8th Annual Cabaret Macabre with The Bad Things, Baby Gramps, The Peculiar Pretzelmen and more

  • Monday, October 31, 2011 - 8pm, $15, 21+

We're excited to welcome back Cabaret Macabre to celebrate a second Halloween with us. Here's what our friends and ticket sellers Brown Paper Tickets had to say about the event. "The event, now in its 8th year, has attracted sold-out crowds with Northwest legends Baby Gramps and The Bad Things performing every year since its inception. This year will also feature the junkyard punk-blues of LA's Peculiar Pretzelmen and the haunting orchestral sounds of Eliza Rickman and her string quartet. On the performance end, there will be tribal belly-dance by Troupe Hipnotica, neo-burlesque from La Petit Morte, plus the Skinny Dip gals and their newest ensemble Triptych. The whole night will be hosted by the leather-tongued, seductress Sasha Summer Cousineau (Beebo Brinker Chronicles) as MC Diva La Deviant. With drunken raucousness, an audience dressed to the nines in bizarre costumery and acts with a dark, degenerate aesthetic, Cabaret Macabre has built a reputation for showcasing the best of the underground cabaret movement in one of the city's premier live music venues."
