The Traveling Nightmare Haunted Rock Revue transforms the Akron Civic Theatre into an over-the-top celebration of rock and horror, kicking off with Akron-based outfit Typhoid Mary. Fronted by 97.5 WONE’s own Steve Hammond, the band fills the air with shredding guitar licks that claw at Hammond's growling vocals and sardonic singsong. The group's macabre sense of humor shines through in songs such as "Akron Stolen Car Blues" and "Killing Suzie with My Uzi." Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath tribute band War Pigz channel the Prince of Darkness before Alice Cooper avatars The Nightmare keep the night rolling with homages to Cooper's gleefully pitch-black sensibility, complete with such onstage effects as guillotines, gallows, and splattering blood. Gruesomely costumed extras haunt the theater before, during, and after performances, alternately spooking show-goers and sadly gazing into the bathroom mirror wondering who will frighten the frighteners.

E.J. Thomas Hall

Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
