Spooktacular Frights @ The Vault

After a horrible accident in their 1961 vintage Airstream, Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing of Hymn For Her will come to The Vault.

They will be back from the grave with a craving for brains as Hymn Eats Her Flesh playing all horror music. This well-traveled and exceedingly entertaining national touring band will bang, pluck and strum on their usual array of unusual instruments -a three-stringed broom handle/cigar box, banjo, dobro, bass drum, hi-hat, and harp-with a fright-filled fervor, as they perform their deadliest hits ever with more than the usual aplomb and a little extra holiday fierceness.

Shows start around 7 p.m. Monday with doors opening at 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door or online. Visit thevault204.com for more information.

Besides the music, there will be a gypsy fortune teller, costume party, free Halloween treats and a film.

“And many other spooktacular surprises!” Tim Smith added.

After the music, there will be a screening of film director George Romero's kickoff to his wildly successful Zombie-series, the 1968 black and white classic horror movie, “Night of the Living Dead.”

The cult film, which depicts the alarming events that follow a brother and sister's ill-timed visit to their father's grave, has been interpreted as a critique of America's militaristic adventure in Vietnam, a bashing of capitalism, and rebuke against repression of minorities.

Because of its graphic scenes of gory cannibalism-children eating their murdered parents, slaughtered for their fresh organ meat - at every screening there's a lot of spine-tingling screaming, much of it on-screen and some of it by terrified (or simply grossed-out) members of the audience.

But don't worry; even though the film was shot on a minuscule budget, the blood being sprayed around isn't the real thing-in actuality it's Bosco's chocolate syrup.

Costumes are encouraged for The Vault's festivities, but not required. The Vault is located at 204 S. A Street in Farmington (in the Factory).
