Thankfully, this Saturday, the New England chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists have decided to resurrect this Halloween rager for its eleventh annual celebration.
First celebrated in 2004, Bloodfeast was started by then New England SPJ chapter heads, Emily Sweeney and Lissa Harris, as a way to raise money for the organization’s journalism student scholarship fund. Since then, the NESPJ has stuck to their traditions of holding their event at Boston nightclub, Machine, and promoting Red Cross blood drives.
Mmmmmaven’s very own co-founder DJ David Day will be making an appearance for his “annual unretirement DJ set.” Additional acts include Together Boston’s director of production Punketta (find her Cathouse Attic set archived here), Byoosik, Sekret-DJ, a B-52’s cover band the Appliques, and live painting by Landon Richmond of Know No Truth.
We know you have tons of options for a Halloween Saturday, but Machine’s soundsystem is massive, this veteran party brings out the freaks, and it’s a rare opportunity to hear DJ David Day, a Make It New resident for 8 years, dig into the darkest, scariest music in his collection: Industrial, Electroclash, EBM.
For example, he has assured me you’ll be hearing this.
Plus it’s all for a good cause. RSVP here.
