When you go to enough shows, they start becoming routine. Maybe you show up a bit after doors open and grab a beer. Then the opener comes on and you half pay attention while chatting with your friends. Finally the headliner plays, you party hard (or, you know, sit calmly and enjoy depending on the show) for an hour and a half then you head home. It’s not a bad routine, but it can sometimes feel stale. That’s why it’s good to shock the system every once in awhile, and no local show has done that better recently than Star Party’s “Witching Hour Halloween Trip-Out”, which went down at The East Room last Friday, Oct. 23. Dan Deacon headlined the mini-festival, with opening sets from Pineapple Explode and Hypochondriak & Madwarrior, but that’s just scratching the surface of the night that was. Read on after the jump to find out more about one of the strangest shows of the year!
