Dracula's Ball *Halloween* 2014


Fun fact: The next time you can go out to a Halloween party on a Friday night is the year 2025. That means you absolutely don't want to miss Dracula's Ball this Friday, on Halloween!

Our Dracula's Ball event takes place right on Halloween (Friday, October 31st) at the Trocadero Theatre. We STRONGLY recommend advance tickets for this event. There will be some tickets at the door, but it's possible that there won't be enough for everyone. If you're coming to the event and want to make sure tickets are still available at the door, you can call The Trocadero box office at 215-922-6888.


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.

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)


INTERFACE: Interface’s sound has ranged from aggressive industrial (“Frantic”, “Metalstorm”) to dance floor anthems (“Age of Computers, “Wasted Time”), to soft ballads and even ambient experimentalism. But for Halloween, expect their most up-tempo, dance-til-you-drop tracks. This is Interface's first performance at the Ball.
STAGE TIME - 12:05am (No Video Yet)

We have a dancefloor downstairs as well as a separate dancefloor on the second floor in the 21+ area. Rocking out one of our DJ booths as well as a big merchandise table is DJ Hiem from Pittsburgh, best known as the creator of the Electronic Saviors cancer benefit compilations. Philadelphia's own DJ Chas Paris joins us with a vow to make you dance 'til your costume shakes off (so make sure it fits snugly!)


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.

Be sure to visit the Dracula's Ball merchandise booth for Drac's Ball gear. We have some fairly unique items on offer!

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.

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
