Ypsilanti bluegrass-punks Black Jake & the Carnies will host “Black Jake’s Halloween Showcase” at Woodruff’s on October 25.
The bill also features The Gepetto Files and The Doppelgänger Circus Sideshow.
They say, “The leaves are changing, the pumpkins are ripening, and there's a distinct chill to the air which foretells the coming of All Hallow's Eve. For Black Jake of Ypsilanti's Black Jake & The Carnies, it's a holiday that has always held a special place in the dark recesses of his heart. For years he has utilized his less-publicized talents for makeup and special effects for private Halloween parties and grand events like Detroit's Theatre Bizarre, but this year he wanted to do a little something extra.
Doors are at 9 p.m. and cover is $6 with costume or $8 without.Follow @City_Slang
