The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to Soylent Green's all-ages Halloween dance party featuring Holy Ghost! at the Anah Shrine Center in Bangor on Sunday, October 30 at 7:45 p.m. (a $20 value, including all fees).
The fun-loving duo of Holy Ghost! polish eardrums with slick electropop, earning acclaim from such publications as Rolling Stone. Rather than hire a Shakespearean theater troupe to reenact New York's 1980s club scene, the musicians layer dance-friendly synthesizer melodies with beats that recall those of electrofunk forebears Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambaataa. Costumed revelers can warm up their boogie muscles during opening sets by nu-disco trio Jessica 6 and DJ Eli Escobar, who will mix rap and disco house using an eggbeater and a bowl filled with quarter notes. Complimentary Monster energy drinks refuel bodies throughout the night, and barkeeps will craft cocktails for those age 21 and older. In addition to flaunting saucy duds, go-go dancers will stop by to demonstrate how to cut a rug or mow a lawn with a cubic-zirconium navel ring.
