Everything you Need to Know for the 11th Anniversary Halloween Cabaret
Enter the multi-verse of the 11th anniversary of the largest and wildest music and performance spectacle you’ll ever experience. It comes but once a year—one night, one massive downtown wide Halloween event.
The Hunger 11 will feature 52 performance acts, including 42 bands + DJs of diverse musical genres. That’s 235 musicians and specialty performers. So massive an event, The Hunger 11 will take up seven bar venues downtown: Crocks, Black Pirates Pub, The Foundry, The Sovereign Room, Gargoyles, and Red Lion Smokehouse.
There will be thousands in prizes for the best costumes at each venue—The Hunger attracts some of the most creative costumes and displays around, and there are many! Last year 4,000 attended, so come early—you don’t want to miss a thing!
Pick your story, diabolic or devilicious. Move between bars and interact with every soul along the way, you could even win prizes in the street! Feed your hunger and treat yourself to the largest, wildest, slickest Halloween experience.
Pay at the door and receive an all-access wristband and a program with times and locations for acts. Choose what you want to see and hear.
The Hunger 11 is a fundraiser for the contemporary arts, presented by Definitely Superior Art Gallery and proudly sponsored by The Walleye—always one of our Top Five events for October because it is always epic!
UPDATE: There is one Big change in our Venues this year; Hell (250 Park Ave, DefSup) is unavailable as a Venue, due to unforeseen building issues beyond our control (relating to our Landlord’s schedule of building upgrades, not being completed in time for our event). However, we are still pleased to offer the full HELL experience morphed into the other six venues! No changes in performers, just more fun packed times for you! It’s going to be a hard and fast, exciting night. So come early, dance weirdly and howl into the night at @ The Foundry, Crocks, The Sovereign Room, Black Pirates Pub, Red Lion Smokehouse and Gargoyles!
No advance tickets/wristbands — all doors open at 8 pm.
