It's been two years of checking under your bed and sleeping with the light on since Horrific Harry Huff's last hair raising performance of Scared for Good. In a night sure to rattle your bones, this creepy crawly concert on Copley will feature everyone's favorite ghoulish tunes, played on the delightfully devilish E.M. Skinner organ. Set amidst the candlelit Gothic splendor of Old South Church in Boston, The Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd, The Exorcist, Harry Potter, The Ride of the Valkyries, and many more will all be brought (back) to life by the supernatural powers of Minister of Music Harry Huff.
Costumes are absolutely encouraged. Admission is free. A voluntary offering will support the Allston-Brighton Food Pantry which provides nourishing food at no cost to members of the Allston-Brighton community.
Children's activities will be held outdoors from 4:30 - 6:30 pm, with face painting, carnival games, candy, and hot cider and hot chocolate. And be sure to check out our jack o'lanterns!
