Saturday was decidedly the night to do the damn thing this Halloween. The Hill was alive with the shrieks and delirious shouts of party-goers everywhere you turned. Seattle Peach kicked off the festivities at Havana where Riff-Raff was murdering in the DJ booth. Our group wandered over to Lovetone for a while to check out Slowdust’s spooky video projections, which were perfectly on point. We made it back to Havana just in time for Jackie Hell and Lisa Dank’s performances and ended the night practicing our Spanish on strangers around a backyard bonfire somewhere on 14th.
Seattle Peach teamed up with a girlfriend to dress up as “Las Hermanas Muertas,” a Day of the Dead-esque look inspired by Sylvia Ji‘s amazing art. Day of the Dead makeup was definitely in this season and we found loads of pretty skeletons dancing about over the weekend.

For Halloween proper, Seattle Peach posted up on 11th and Pike, which was a virtual block party between the events at Sole Repair, Neumos and the Comet. Grabbing snaps of kids in costume along the way, we eventually wandered over to Pony where we danced until Seattle Peach’s red pumps finally gave out.

The unimposing space at Vermillion on 11th and Pike is frequently a choice destination for Seattle Peach and crew when we want to unwind. Within the last year, the art gallery/cocktail lounge has been at the top of its game when it comes to playing host to artsy events. L O V E T O N E, a monthly dance party showcasing top-notch visual projections, leads the pack as far as unconventional carousing is concerned. The psychedelic surroundings created by massive projections coupled with complementary DJ sets is one of the best monthlies in town. The dark and intimate back bar area lends itself to deep talking and the towering corridors guide party-goers gracefully through the space.
Seattle Peach asked L O V E T O N E promoter, Ozma Ocatova, his philosophy when approaching the event:
“Lovetone started in December 2010. It is the physical manifestation of a mental experiment. The general idea is to bring Seattle an event that rearranges the elements of several specific cultures and creates an environment that takes people to an unfamiliar feeling. Hopefully it induces some reflection. You never have the same psychedelic experience twice, and there are always lessons to be learned.”
L O V E T O N E will celebrate this month with a free Halloween party slated for Saturday night. Residents Jon Francois, Christian Science, David James and, of course, Ozma, will be on hand and the Slowdust collective will be making a very special guest appearance.
