Halloween vs. The Dark Backward

Following the release of our upcoming record, "The River", on October 14th, The Dark Backward invites you to dress your best and attend the hottest Halloween event of the year – our 6th annual HALLOWEEN vs. THE DARK BACKWARD celebration!

This year's event will begin at 8:00 PM on Saturday, October 29th at Equimix Studios (1731 NE Liberty St, PDX).

$5.00 donation at the door.  All profits will be donated to Ethos for music outreach programs in Oregon.  For more information on Ethos, visit http://ethos.org.

$1 beer and $2 spooky cocktails will be available.

Every year, we celebrate our favorite holiday like it's going out of style, and this year will be no different.  This will most likely be the last time that we are able to hold the event at Equimix due to capacity concerns, but we'll be going all out to make sure that this is our best one yet.

Check out some of the fun we have lined up:
