Monster Bash returns to the Gaslamp

Haunted souls will run wild all over the Gaslamp and East Village this Halloween. On October 31, from 6 p.m. until midnight, costumed partiers will converge for the 15th Annual Dos XX Monster Bash, presented by Sailor Jerry.

Indulge your temptations and sinister side as you explore five stages and freaky entertainment areas and compete with San Diego’s most ghoulish of ghouls for a $5,000 cash prize in the Monster Bash Costume Contest.

At the Devil’s Playground, visitors will be invited to party with Lucifer and his cohorts in a rave where there is no such thing as going too far. No judgments will be passed and transgressions will be celebrated in this delightfully sinister playground.

Bearded ladies and creepy clowns rule in the Freak Show, a land of circus oddities taken to their sexiest limit. Open your eyes to new experiences and stretch your imagination.

Come face to face with your creepiest childhood nightmares as you get down in the Dollhouse. Life size dolls on stilts will silently watch and haunt you from overhead as you make your way down 7th Avenue, searching for an escape from a Victorian dollhouse that might not exist.

Try to discover the secrets hidden behind the masks of dancers at the renowned Dos XX Masquerade. Don your own mask and find yourself swept up in a world of mystery, secrets, and indiscretions.

Reach the end of the world in the VIP Zombie Apocalypse, filled with flames, destruction, and flesh-eating savages around every turn. Take full advantage of the hysterical experience with a VIP upgrade, including VIP entrance, VIP restrooms, a separate lounge area and four complimentary drinks from the VIP lounge bar.

Across all five spooky stages, partygoers will surrender their inhibitions to over 20 top DJs from San Diego and the nation. Look for the Stafford Brothers, Ghastly, Carter Cruise, SNBRN, B and Chase, Graham Funke, Fauks, Groy, Von Kiss, Schoeny, Chris Cutz, DJ Ramsey, Jared F, Deejay O, DJ D-Lo, DJ Angle, DJ Billy the Kid and more hyping up crowds.

General admission tickets to Monster Bash are $50 through October 30 and $60 at the door on Halloween. A VIP experience can be yours for $90 through October 30 and $100 at the door. More information can be found at
