Students looking to experience Halloween outdoors without trick-or-treating can head over to Station Street this Saturday, October 28 for the first annual Something Wicked event.
Something Wicked on Station Street, hosted by the Revelry Room, was created to give Chattanooga locals a central place to celebrate Halloween in ways they may never have before.
Monica Kinsey, owner of Track 29, the Revelry Room and Hush Lounge, said that the Something Wicked event was created to bring locals together in the heart of Chattanooga for a one of a kind Halloween party that includes dress-up, music and contests.
“We wanted to celebrate our local music scene in a fun and safe atmosphere giving Chattanooga a true Halloween event,” said Kinsey.
The hosts chose Station Street as their party destination due to its heavy entertainment influence in the southside Chattanooga area. Locals can come out in their costumes and hear a variety of different bands with genres all across the board.
“We have various genres with Strung Like A Horse bringing their gypsy punk garage grass and then the Communicators presents: Legends of Music’s Past covering people’s favorite artists that have passed,” said Kinsey.
Other bands that will make an appearance on Station Street include alternative indie rock artist Nick Lutsko’s Horror Show who will partner with Hip Hop Chattanooga for an exciting performance. The Chattanooga Fire Cabaret will also perform at the event.
Kinsey is excited to see what kind of crowd the event will attract, and hopes to turn Something Wicked into an annual celebration.
“We aren’t sure what kind of crowd to expect since it’s the first one,” said Kinsey, “We are hopeful that we will attract all kinds of fun folks.”
No need to trick or treat for your snacks, as Station Street will be covered with food trucks where you can purchase craft beers and exceptional food to fuel your fun-filled night.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in contests and the chance to win prizes. The costume contest will be hosted at all the venues located on Station Street including Regan’s, Westbound, Comedy Catch and the Revelry Room with a grand finale on the stage. First, second and third prize winners will be awarded with a cash prize for their costumes that will be judged by the applause of the audience.
This Halloween grab your friends and your most creative costume and celebrate in the street this Saturday for Something Wicked on Station Street.
Tickets can be purchased the day of for $30 or in advance for $25 at the Revelry Room box office or online. This is a 21 and over event, so the hosts advise attendees to have their ID’s ready to go and to make sure that they are recognizable through their costumes.
