Astoria – Get your freakiness on then get your dance on. The Hellorium returns to Fort George this Halloween night with live music, costume prizes, and plenty of killer beers all over the block.
The upstairs at Fort George hosts the coast’s liveliest party featuring infectious zydeco rhythms from New Iberians, followed by the funktastic psychedelic sounds of Scott Pemberton Band. Prizes for the most inspired, jaw-dropping, panic attack inducing costumes will be handed out at the door. This section of the block is 21-and-over for the night – no little ghouls after 8pm. Please enter at the 15th Street double doors or through the Fort George Garden on Exchange Street. IDs and wristbands are required. Music begins upstairs at 8pm.
For those zombies craving a more intimate evening, Moon Balloons will be performing in the Lovell Building, just outside of the Taproom. With Lauren Jacobsen (From last year’s String Goretet), plus Kati Claborn, Luke Ydstie, and Ryan Dobrowski (of Hook & Anchor and Blind Pilot), the sounds emanating from the brewery will haunt your memories for years to come. First performance begins at 7pm, with a follow-up set at 9pm.
There is never a cover for the Fort George Hellorium. The Taproom and downstairs pub are open to all ages until 10pm. Upstairs is 21+ only starting at 8pm. If you haven’t experienced a Halloween in Astoria – the oldest and spookiest settlement west of the Rockies – this is the year. Arrive early or be left out in the dark.
