Halloween party to benefit local journalism scholarship
-- A diverse crowd of reporters, editors, artists, photographers, designers,
DJs, and drag queens will descend upon Machine nightclub to celebrate
Bloodfeast on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2007.
This will be the 4th annual Bloodfeast party in Boston . The New England chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (www.spj.org/newengland) throws this huge Halloween bash every year to fund a scholarship for college students studying journalism.
Four of the city’s finest DJs -- DJ Mothra, Michael Savant, Punketta Doilie and Shivar -- will spin music all night long, and there will be live performances by extreme fashion designer/entertainer Sarula, electro-dance collective [:angeldustrial:], burlesque star Mademoiselle Lena and the renegade dance troupe known as 123 Party.
NESPJ chapter president Emily "Spikey Em" Sweeney and local glass artist Emily Lombardo will emcee the Halloween costume pageant at the end of the night.
Machine nightclub is giving away $1,000 cash as the grand prize for best costume, and runner-up contestants will win prizes from Johnny Cupcakes and Karmaloop Boston.
All of this Halloween mayhem is for a good cause – everyone will
receive information about upcoming blood drives from the American Red Cross,
and proceeds from the door will benefit the NESPJ scholarship.
Sponsors and supporters of the party include Boston ’s Weekly Dig (www.weeklydig.com), MF Magazine (www.musicfashionmagazine.com), Lemon Magazine (www.lemonland.net), Sin-O-Matic, and Ogygia Avenue Films.
