Fred and Jason are back for their eighth year presenting Halloweenie, one of Los Angeles's hottest Halloween parties, with proceeds going to support the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles's (www.gmcla.org) Alive Music Project! Halloweenie 2013 will take place on October 25, 2013 at 9 p.m. at the famed Los Angeles Theatre (615 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA), the ornate movie palace in downtown LA.
Born from their intense love for Halloween, their commitment to charity, as well as their love for bringing people together for celebration, Fred and Jason created Halloweenie eight years ago when it began as a party in their backyard. Since then, the party has grown out of their home and to venues such as The Henry Fonda Theater, Hollywood Forever Cemetery and The Lot, which is home to HBO's hit show True Blood. Halloweenie is a costume-required event featuring open bars, world-renowned DJs, feverish dancing, celebrities, killer photo opportunities, VIP areas, private cabanas and more!
Guest DJs include Grammy-nominated producer/remixer DJ Dave Audé and DJ Blacklow who began his career at the age of 18, spinning the beats of Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia. Performances curated by INSTALL:LA will include artist Thinh Nguyen who has exhibited live installations at museums across the world, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles; performance artist Yoshie Sakai, and designer/artist Amy von Harrington.
Halloweenie gHosts include: Fred and Jason, Lance Bass and Michael Turchin, David Cooley, Wilson Cruz, John Duran, Brian Pendleton and Chad Goldman, Jeffery Sanker, Chris Verdugo, and Woody Woodbeck, among many others. The black carpet will be rolled out for celebrities and sponsors, which include Akvinta vodka, SBE, The Abbey, Brian Pendleton & Chad Goldman, RedBull, Evian, Anawalt, Perrier Jouet, Crumble Catering, Rockwell, Hansen's, PopChips, Sheila G's Brownie Brittle, WET, PastaChips, Van Wolff and Sneaky Pete's.
GMCLA's Alive Music Project (AMP), the beneficiary of the event, is a unique music education outreach program designed for Los Angeles middle and high school students that uses song to create a powerful anti-bullying message. AMP works closely with school Gay Straight Alliances and incorporates the essential tools of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) to improve learning environments for each student it reaches.
