Heaven, Hunx, and Bleached all in one night make for the craziest Halloween I’ve ever had. Set at the Echo; a crowd was dressed to impress in over the top costumes. “What if you didn’t have a costume?”, NO WORRIES! Not only was there a black metal face painting booth, but also a kissing booth, and costume and booty shaking contests.
The first band up was Heaven who made their debut at the Halloween Babylon. With popular DJ/ Illustrator/ Producer Franki Chan on drums- this band definitely set the mood with their moody and groovy tunes. Next came up was the quick booty shaking contest; with people nervous to go on stage at first, the contest quickly turned into a full on twerk party on stage. Afterwards the crowd quickly got over excited to see Hunx of Hunx and his Punx perform as GAYRACULA. He started his set off with his new hit single “I Vant to Suck Your Cock” which had everyone screaming, dancing, and singing along with joy. The rest of the set was electric with Hunx classics and a few covers. Finally came Bleached; who really charged everyone up with Misfits and Ramones covers (with vocal support from Blaque Chris), as well as two songs of their own to end the show. When Bleached goes on; all hell breaks loose. Instantly the Echo crowd broke into mosh pits, and crowd surfers dove from the stage; a full on punk Halloween dance party. As everyone exited the Echo after Bleached, all that was seen were worn out partiers with sweaty face paint and torn costumes; visible that it was the perfect way to celebrate Halloween.
