Wed. Oct 29 – A Night of Rock n Roll Horror

I am very excited to invite all of our Lawrence/Kansas City-based Scene-Stealers sitegoers to our first gathering of the masses. It’s a perfect amalgamation of the Halloween spirit, a charitable cause that we truly believe in (Children’s Music Fund), and everything else our website stands for—including partying, rad movie memorablia, trivia, and rock n’ roll!

On Wednesday night October 29 at the Screenland Theater at the Crossroads(1656 Washington) in downtown Kansas City, we will summon forth from the depths of Hell (for a good cause of course)…

Rock n Roll Horror

6:30pm:
-First 50 people in the door get free advance passes to Kevin Smith’s “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.”
-Raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win big prizes, such as a brand-new 32GB iPod Touch, donated by our good friends at Transmuto Media.
-Rock Band will be available in the Screenland’s big room for everyone to join in and shred some nasty-hot licks and pound those drums.
-The Screenland’s bar will be open and rocking, and much socializing will occur.
-Food donated by our sponsors will be available until it runs out.

7:30pm:
-Eric will host a horror-movie trivia game. The winner will get one of the extremely cool prizes we have to give away. (Not the iPod, that’s up for grabs in the raffle!)
-Inevitably, someone will think they are playing a real guitar and try to smash the plastic toy in their hand. In true rock-show fashion, the drunken lout will be forcibly ejected.

8:00pm:
-Everything we have, including the iPod Touch (see list below), will be given away in the charity raffle.
-A short reel of cheesy 1980s movies, horror and not, will be shown.
-“Trick or Treat” (1986), starring the guy who played Skippy on “Family Ties,” will be shown in its entirety, and you will learn what happens when bad heavy metal albums are played backwards. The bar will stay open.

iPod Touch

I’d totally skip considering I hate the class, but I have a test that night. I’m also skipping a week of classes in November to rock out on the east coast and eat pizza and cheesesteaks.
