Dracula's Ball *Halloween* 2014


The most exciting, invigorating, decadent day of the year is coming up soon. This year, it's on a Friday night, which means there's absolutely no excuse to miss out. Halloween is less than two months away, and everyone is starting to feel a little darker already.

Our Dracula's Ball event takes place right on Halloween (Friday, October 31st) at the Trocadero Theatre. This event WILL be sold out, so we strongly recommend purchasing advance tickets.


Doors open at 9pm and our event ends at 2am. Tickets are $18.50 and are on sale now through Ticketfly (service charges apply), Digital Ferret (in person - no fees for cash) and IsoTank (online, $1 fee for credit card). We'll keep our website and Facebook page updated with ticket information. (If going to Digital Ferret in person, be sure to call ahead to check their hours as they are currently undertaking some renovations: 215-925-9259)

Please RSVP to this event on Facebook. You can also use our event page to invite your Facebook friends to the party.


Artists Appearing at Dracula's Ball, Halloween


SPIDER LILIES: Spider Lilies is dark electro-rock with female vocals, guitar, and often, violin. Their live show is a high-energy experience, fronted by Stacey Campbell, who toured the world with other bands before starting this project in 1999. Often compared to Kidney Thieves, Collide, or Ego Likeness, Spider Lilies have three releases under their belt and will be visiting the Ball to support their new EP, "Error." This is their first time performing for us.
STAGE TIME - 10:35pm (See Video)


DAS ICH: All the way from Germany, ready to make sure your Halloween is full of dark, electronic goodness, Das Ich is back at the Ball! One of the most artistic, unpredictable and influential acts of their time, Das Ich has always had a knack for mixing statements with amazing dancefloor beats. What craziness will they be up to this time? There's only one way to find out!
STAGE TIME - 12:05am (See Video)

We have a dancefloor downstairs as well as a separate dancefloor on the second floor in the 21+ area; our DJs for these rooms will be announced next week.


Facebook "Mirror" Profile *VANISHED*

Unfortunately, Facebook has removed our "Mirror" profile that enabled us to connect with more of you, since our original profile reached its 5000 friend limit long ago. Facebook is also throttling our posts more frequently (meaning that you aren't seeing them) and limiting the number of people we can invite to events.

Please be sure to check our website for the latest news, and stay subscribed to this list! We will be gradually decreasing our presence on Facebook in the months ahead.


Details, Some of Which Will Be Familiar to You


IT'S HALLOWEEN! Costumes are very much encouraged (but not mandatory) and it seems like each year, you all outdo yourselves. We can only imagine what kind of creativity you'll be unleashing for this event. Our Halloween event always sells out, and since this one falls on a Friday, we don't anticipate having any tickets at the door. BUY YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE!

The location for all of our Dracula's Ball events during 2014 will be the historic Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia. As always, the Ball is open to all ages, but you must be 21+ with proper photo ID to drink. Personal photo cameras are welcome. Large professional camera rigs with unpleasant flash bulbs are not. Video cameras are not allowed.

Our Facebook page is frequently updated with news on ticket availability and other matters. You can also use Facebook to officially RSVP to the Ball, Share links to the Ball on your own page and see how many of your friends have already RSVP'd to the event.

It's never a good idea to miss any Dracula's Ball party, but you know that Halloween is the one you absolutely cannot skip. Tickets will be limited to ensure that people have room to move around, so get tickets in advance. Don't wait 'til the last minute or you'll be out of luck.

It's going to be a fantastic Halloween and we're excited to see what amazing costumes you come up with this year.

Best wishes,

[Patrick] & Dracula's Ball Staff
