Halloween is the one night of the year when you can pretend to be someone else, even if you don't know his or her Yahoo! Games password. Be anyone with this GrouponLive deal: for $32, you get two general-admission tickets to Nightmare on the Harbor 2 at the South Carolina Aquarium on Wednesday, October 31, at 8 p.m. (up to a $65.28 value, including all fees). This is a 21+ event.
For the second annual Nightmare on the Harbor Halloween dance party, Brightsound Entertainment beckons werewolves, vampires, and skeletons to boogie all night long amid the creatures of the deep at South Carolina Aquarium. Among the party’s live performers, the unabashed troublemakers of Cherub pump Technicolor beats at ‘80s funk tempos as singer-songwriter Jordan Kelley tickles ears with his heavily-distorted, velvety falsetto. Ashanti “The Mad Violinist” Floyd and the Symphony Crack Orchestra rework hip-hop, big-bass techno, and dubstep in an instrumental ensemble format. Floyd has worked with such superstars as Lupe Fiasco, John Legend, and producer Kane Beatz and does not shy from unbelievable violin covers of Skrillex, DJ Khaled, and Deadmau5.
Besides listening to these otherworldly performances, partygoers can also head 30 feet below the aquarium’s first floor and into the shark tank for a silent disco, where they’ll don headphones and dance to music transmitted to their wireless headphone receivers. The evening reaches a fever pitch as a herd of shuffling zombies pours out into the open, not to eat brains, but to destroy inhibitions as they reenact Michael Jackson’s "Thriller." All the while, the event organizers will observe the party scene to identify the finest costume-wearers, and a popular vote at the end of the evening awards a $500 prize to the winner of the costume contest.
