DJs often begin as avid record collectors, much as orchestra conductors often start out as people who just have a ton of French horns lying around.

For $10, you get one ticket for general admission on Friday, October 26, at 8 p.m. (up to a $20.49 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7:50 p.m.
If there ever were a zombie apocalypse, the DJs of Bass Kitchen Halloween Feast would create the ideal soundtrack to the mayhem. Unleashing heavy bass lines and pulsating, frenetic beats over the costume-clad crowd Friday night, music mixers incite arm flailing and rhythmic head-banging from even the most demure pregnant nuns. Renowned Canadian DJ Downlink headlines the shindig with dark, bass-heavy dubstep, a sound profile he applied to Korn’s 10th studio album as producer. Nit Grit, the stage name of dubstep producer Danny Beall, follows suit, and Nobody Beats the Drum makes the Portage Theater’s vintage walls vibrate with a blend of electronic music and hip-hop. The expert thumping of DJs Fatboy and Dakota round out the feverish festivities. The best-dressed zombie at the party wins free tickets to the Congress Theater stop of Knife Party’s Haunted House Tour on Saturday, October 27.
