Night of the Dead 2009
Third Annual Halloween concert returns to Barrymore Theatre
The Barrymore Theatre is proud to announce the return of the Night of the Dead Halloween concert and costume party to the historic Madison venue on Friday, October 30th, 2009.  This year's line-up includes three Madison area bands: The Grasshoppers, Baghdad SCUBA Review, and Clovis Mann, with all three bands taking on musical "costumes". This year's event is sure to be the best yet.

The inaugural Night of the Dead party was held at the Barrymore on November 2nd, 2007, and featured the now defunct Madison band Run Side Down, and last years headliner, Baghdad SCUBA Review.  The show was considered a success selling just over 300 tickets, about one-third of the Barrymore's capacity.

In an attempt to be closer to the UW student body, last years Night of the Dead was moved to the Majestic Theatre, a move which seemed to lessen the awe of seeing three local bands play the Barrymore. 

In its third year, this "jamband" showcase is beginning to compete with the other major parties that take place in Madison over the Halloween weekend.  Besides the return to the Barrymore, this year's event will include musical "costumes" by each band, meaning that each group will pay tribute to one band, or in the case of Baghdad SCUBA Review's costume, one genre- FUNK.  The Grasshoppers will pay tribute to the psychedelic works of Pink Floyd, while blues-rockers Clovis Mann will take you on an epic journey through the Allman Brothers Band catalogue.  Tickets for this years event will be $10 in advance and $12 day-of-show, available at all Barrymore ticket outlets.
