This Halloween the dolls are back in town and ready for revenge, so don’t pull any Trump costumes from the CVS discount shelf (they don’t call it Knockdown Center for nothing).
Shock Value, Glam, and Ragga all have distinct vibes but will converge, make a pact, and massacre their past personas to create a Frankenstein’s Bride of a mega party for Halloween 2018! The Shadow of the Cat is taking its cue from the slashers of the past, present, and future, so think of ya girl Lorena Bobbet, ya sister Asami Yamazaki in Audition, and don’t forget Crystal Johnson from Wives with Knives!
NYC’s relationship to nightlife can be a true horror story when you roll up to one of these “woke” nightclubs which are actually just run by racist, transphobic owners and staff who actually live in Williamsburg but are always reppin’ “Bushwick Nightlife 4 Ever.” But nightlife is where many of us go to find our people, it’s church, but this year there’s no time to show off to your mom and grandmaw by coming down the aisle to get some shine for saying “I’ve been saved.” If you wanna feel safe and sound head to Happy Fun Hideaway cuz this party is going to be psycho and no one can save you now, not even La Chat!

“The moon is full, the night is black, and the witches in Bushwick have got your back.The femmes are in full force.. they’ve conjured a spell, the consequences of which no one can tell. All witches are equal there isn’t a head, but if there were the name PEACHES might be said! Please come in a full look, not just a mask or cape otherwise your picture for our Instagram we won’t take.” -Nightlife Expert
