Halloween is right around the corner, and no one likes to be the guy or gal without a plan for the night. If you’re still looking for something fun to do to celebrate, look no further. Stop by The Vogue on Halloween night next Tuesday for their dance party and costume contest.
The Facebook page for the event has all the details for anyone interested in attending. And for anyone who doesn’t want to open up a new tab, I’ll relay most of the important stuff here.
The Dynamic Duos Industry Halloween Party will feature ten different DJ’s in five sets throughout the night. The first set to play is jFETT and Shy Guy Says. You may not recognize the former, but the later is a DJ who goes by the stage name of “Shy Guy.” While his Facebook profile reveals little about the man behind the music, it does indicate that Shy Guy Says is signed with IndyMojo. It’s safe to assume he’s one of Indianapolis’ own local DJ’s. His preferred genres range from hip-hop to dubstep.
Lots of local acts
The second set to play will be Lockstar and Cadillac G, two other lesser-known names who are undoubtedly also rising local talent. After them are The Dub Knight and Jodyfree. The Dub Knight’s name definitely keeps with the superhero theme of the night. Unlike Shy Guy, The Dub Knight isn’t afraid to distinguish himself as an Indianapolis artist on his Facebook page. He’s a DJ who plays heavy bass music, and sports a lively presence in his home city, including playing the Indianapolis 500 snake pit in 2011.
The fourth act on Halloween night is Japanese multi-instrumentalist/producer Matsu and DJ Niko Flores. It won’t be the first time the two have played together, as they also collaborate under the name Matsu x Flores. The front page of Flores’ website proudly displays the fact that Flores is an official DJ of the Indianapolis Pacers. It’s clear the party at The Vogue this Halloween will be one for the home crowd.
The fifth and final act next Tueday night will feature two of the more well-known in Indy, Cam Miller and Indigo Child. With a profile in which he describes himself as “weird, but relatable,” Cam Miller is an experienced DJ who plays multiple venues across the broader Indianapolis area.
Breaking the trend of DJ’s, Indigo Child is a four-piece band that plays what they describe as “trip rock” on their profile. The members of Indigo Child are Kim Pixey Elder (vocals), Al Clapper (keys, vocals), Andre Van Der Merwe (bass), and Adrian Fowler (drums). Another thing the band differs in is that they’ll be one of the only groups from Cape Cod, rather than a local group. Despite this, I’m still willing to give Indigo Child the benefit of a doubt.
Along with the stellar lineup, The Vogue is also throwing a costume contest in celebration of the holiday. Not only do you stand a chance to win the $1500 in prize money, but a costume also allows you to waive the $5 entry fee to the event. The party starts at 9:00 p.m., and goes until 3:00 a.m.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve already got my Halloween plans figured out.
