Band: Devil’s Night • Date: Sunday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m.
Venue: Alchemy Tavern, 7 S. Joachim St., www.alchemytavernmobile.com
Tickets: $6 at the door ($5 if in costume)
Since it began in the early 20th century, Devil’s Night has remained shadowed in the underground. Traditionally held the night before Halloween, Devil’s Night focuses more on tricks than treats. Costumed masses fill the evening with feats of mischief and mayhem — and now the tradition this way comes.
Alchemy Tavern and County Morgue Productions are combining their dark arts to bring Devil’s Night to Mobile. This event will feature the obligatory costume contest as well as horrifying décor from Philadelphia-based artist Nate the Knife, who also will be providing a piece of art that will be raffled.
Devil’s Night at Alchemy will feature an appropriate soundtrack. Gulf Coast bands reflecting every corner of the twisted world of metal will be on hand. Curse the Flesh, Oracle and Gathering ov Vultures will contribute metal sounds forged in Alabama. Lustravi and Accursed Creator will be traveling from Florida to prove why this state is the Southeast’s metal capital.
