In the continuing tradition of awesome Austin parties, the White Ghost Shivers will hold their annual Halloween Ball on Friday, October 31st, 2014
Eleven years and running, this event has become the gold standard in celebrating all things dark and dangerous and this year will be no exception, bringing the fun in a literary fashion.

Held at the historic Saengerrunde Halle, "A Night of Grimm Tales" will offer those old and young of heart, or young and old of heart, a night of classic story telling and music. One shall be entertained by arts so nefarious that the impression will linger till your last breathe. Music for the evening will consist of the hilly billy howling of Clyde and Clem's Whiskey Business, the continually enlightening East Cameron Folkcore, and our one and only little darlings of Austin ragtime, The White Ghost Shivers. This dastardly ball of yarns brings together the best brawlers, bawlers, and bastards whose ballads will be sure to keep you dancing!

We will also have adult beverages provided by our friends at Dos XX. You can grab pre-paid tickets here or feel free to grab them at the door. So come out for the libations and stay for the frivolity!
