Bric-a-Brac is honored to partner up with Sacred Bones Records to present a very special night of Halloween super fandom. John Carpenter’s new take on the classic soundtrack is getting released on 10/19 and we are one of 25 stores in the country with a box full of exclusive treats for you! Super limited color variants, trick or treat bags, label swag, and more!
Plus, our friends at Paulie Gee’s Pizza are letting us take over the restaurant for the evening! We’ll be DJing the spookiest of tunes and selling the new soundtrack along with all available installments of Death Waltz’s reissue series of the soundtracks from Halloween I-V AND their jaw-droppingly beautiful commemorative box to house all volumes. Creepy Co will also be vending, showing off their latest line of officially licensed Halloween merchandise and tons more of their signature goodies.
If that’s not enough for you, Paulie Gee’s will have some pizzas on special with Halloween iconography baked IN the cheese! That’s right! A Michael Myers pizza!!
After all that insanity wraps up, we’ll all make the 3 block walk up to the Logan Theatre and catch a screening of the reason for the season, Halloween (2018)!
Welcome back maniacs! This year's MUSIC BOX OF HORRORS promises to obliterate your sanity as we journey to the land of Australia for some skin-melting-goop-debauchery, revel in the gleeful delight of two of horrors greatest villains battling to the death, crash land into a hellscape of vamp-infused alien invasion, a sadistic desert-commune living cult leader cum magician, a tale of two sisters and the primate that tears them apart, and oh so much more! Special guest Don Mancini to come out for a 30th anniversary screening of CHILD'S PLAY.
