A dark, treat-filled comical cabaret rife with bloodcurdling tales, spooky songs and other only-during-this-week weirdness? The bell tolls again for The Witching Hour from musician Eban Schletter. He's written tunes for shows like "Spongebob Squarepants" while also rocking out on the alt-country and organ music scene (yes, there is an organ music scene).
Mr. Schletter once again assembles friends and colleagues to spook the bejeebies out of people, and also entertain them at the same time. Singers, songwriters, performers and actors will all share the stage with the host -- look for the wonderful Jill Sobule, Chrissy Guerrero, Dave "Gruber" Allen, Karla Jimenez, Daamen Krall and more people who've signed on to push the scare quotient.
We've also read something about a devil doll making an appearance, which simultaneously intrigues/horrifies (intrigifies?) us. We think we're brave enough.
