Kick Ass Oregon History presents Ghastly Northwest Tales: A Historic Halloween on Thursday, October 31, 2013 at the Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder).
Master of ceremonies and resident historian Dough Kenck-Crispin will reveal Rotten, Vile Yarns of the Pacific Northwest, including tales of Satanic ritual cult murders of the dark and perpetually rainy Pacific Northwest.
Guest historians Joe Streckert and Finn John will discuss creepiness inherent in seemingly uncreepy spaces… the tragic tales of a water spanning structure, and more . . .
And what would a KAORHST event be without a little Burlesque Dancing? The evening will also feature delightfully dark dancing by local ecdysiasts Sophie Maltease, Fleur de Sel, and Hyacinth Lee. The trio will be presenting burlesque full of both tricks and treats fitting for All Hallows’ Eve.
The evening also features a costume contest with fabulous prizes and dancing thanks to DJ NoN of Decadent 80s fame.
And holy shit, there’s going to be a mime, Bennett the Artist.
Doors open at 8 pm. Admission (i.e. the suggested donation) is a mere $6. The Jack London is 21 and over only.
