Be Frightfully Fabulous at the 12th Annual Dos Equis XX Monster Bash Block Party! Saturday, October 27th

September 29, 2012

On Saturday, October 27, 2012 San Diego Monster Bash will take over the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter and East Village transforming over eight blocks of San Diego’s downtown neighborhood into a spectacular Halloween block party.  Between 6:00 PM and Midnight attendees can enter through the Gates of Hell at 6th Avenue and Market, party on with the undead on Island Avenue, and venture into some of the rowdiest parties the East Village has ever seen.

Since its inception over a decade ago, Monster Bash has turned into the biggest Halloween celebration in Southern California by incorporating some of the most stunning production elements and major entertainment, including nationally renowned, highly sought after DJs. In successfully combining these elements Monster Bash achieves it's goal to create a Halloween experience that will attract people traveling from all over the nation to the streets of East Village in San Diego.

In 2011, Monster Bash sold out in record time and this year it is expected to do so again, especially with all of the new and creative surprises of Monster Bash. Creator, Laurel McFarlane, of McFarlane Promotions, Inc. is one of the largest event producers in San Diego and is known for incorporating unexpected, creative elements at each of her events.  She spends the spring months researching and creating new themes for Monster Bash, and this year will not disappoint with the addition of three large Mega Clubs: Trudy's Trash House, the Black Forest Club, and the Dos XX Fright Club.

In Trudy’s Trash House, attendees can let their hair down and their dirty side take over as they party the night away with the classiest rednecks straight out of Sturges. This area will come to life with a Semi truck set up as the stage, Harley Davidson bikes and go-go dancers adorning the trashiest, sexiest tats all over their bodies.

Not to be outdone, the Black Forest Club will boast a living dark forest of trees that will move with the energy of the wickedly sick beats, a black castle stage and of course the 7 Snow Whites with a surprise treat on each platform.  Be mindful of the temptations of the poisonous fruits that are sure to entice even the “fairest of all the land” into a night of darkness filled with unforgiving choices you may not want to remember.

The final haunting club will be the Dos XX Fright Club which will recreate a high end, Vegas style party lounge in the middle of the street. In every corner you will find swarms of monsters, hear the unsettling groans of the undead or dance face-to-face with the temptingly dangerous fangs of lustful vampires.  The Dos Equis XX Fright Club is not for the faint of heart so be prepared to battle the beasts.

This year's Monster Bash is bringing back an amazing line up of DJs and Entertainment; Director Jason Guillroy is bringing in talent from Vegas, LA, New York, Miami together with your local San Diego favorites to create a diverse lineup that is sure to please every Halloween Partygoer. The lineup has a variety of acts that will bring even the dead out to party.  The lineup this year includes, but is not limited to; Flosstradamus,  Revlovr, DJ Mike Attack, The Knocks, Sammy Bananas, Dani Deahl, DJ G-Roy, DJ Kevin Brown, DJ Beatnick, DJ Freshmaker, DJ AD, DJ Theron and more!

As always, Monster Bash would not be the Halloween extravaganza that it is without the $3,000 CASH Costume Contest hosted by local celebrity emcee Tenacious Tricia and MC Mikey Beats. Choose your costume wisely as it is only after winning this irresistible prize that you will fully be able to rest in peace. Not only does your ticket get you a chance to win $3,000 CASH, but it also serves as a ticket for food and drink specials, as well as, free entrance into the Gaslamp and East Village’s nightclubs and hotspots. The drink which will quench the thirst of the parties' fiendish ghouls will be Dos Equis XX’s and Malibu Black, both of which will be amorous potions for even the coldest of souls.
