Tonight, the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA, is hosting a very unique Special Event called “Dance Party at the Pen; A Masquerade“. This is the second year in a row the creators of the popular Terror Behind The Walls have hosted the party, but never before have they hosted any event with such a huge lineup of entertainment! The party starts at 9:00pm tonight, May 18. 2013.
-Eastern State Penitentiary – Philadelphia PA-
DJ Scopitone will kick off the dance party by spinning speakeasy-style records on antique phonographs right outside the jail cell of the infamous Al Capone! Later, DJ Venomous Knockout will take the crowd through a musical time travel leading up to today’s hottest hits. Headlining this year’s masquerade will be the amazing performance by ArcheDream for Humankind, an international black light performing arts group.
Eastern State Penitentiary is a crumbling 10-acre property with over 1,000 rooms within its 30-foot walls. There will certainly be surprises waiting for attendees behind the iron gates. If a beautiful masked woman approaches you and invites you to follow her down a dark corridor, we highly encourage you to do so. You might just find a hidden shot bar in a cell, a secret black jack game in an old inmate workshop, or a platter of cupcakes in the prison’s long-abandoned Operating Room. The possibilities are limitless.
Below is a secret message from Mr. E at Eastern State that some of the guests have received.
