Between EBC, Costumed dances, TPing houses, and scary movie marathons, it’s easy to forget what this Halloween Holiday Season is all about. That, my friends, is of course CAAAAAANDY!!!! So, the Thursday following the Eastern Balboa Championships, RDU Rent Party will be throwing a post-Halloween candy cleanup and costume one-last-use party. We’ll be bringing back the Bumper Jacksons from Baltimore, MD and have been told we are likely to have a ridiculously costumed band for the night. 🙂
So consider it your Hero’s Duty (not that kind of doody) to dress up for this event. The best dressed will win a special prize from our resident Stinkbrain, Laura Windley. Bonus points will be given for those dressing as video game characters. Anyone attempting to go Turbo and cheat the game will be candy-coated and locked in the Fungeon where you will be forced to play the game (http://www.disney.co.uk/wreck-it-ralph/games/?game=sugar-rush) and listen to the Sugar Rush song on an endless loop.
So bring whatever leftover Halloween candy you have for the build-a-racer mini game (NOTE: The racer factory may have been destroyed by a game-jumping bad guy). You can gorge yourself on refined sugars and dance like mad until the clock winds down, then it will all go up in a giant geyser of Mentos and Diet Coke and we’ll reset the game to do it all again.
The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. Hot and sweet, their trad jazz and pre-war country repertoire paint’s America’s story from New Orleans’ brothels to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78’s, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style. They perform the old traditional sounds of America, heart-wrenching and youthful, and always in the spirit of raw adventure.
