The Night of 100 Elviras in photos


Halloween arrived early this year as the Ottobar, along with MC Aurora Gorealis, on Saturday hosted the Night of 100 Elviras celebrating the horror icon and Mistress of the Dark. The inaugural party came complete with trivia games, lots of drinks and local music. A Date With Elvira (a Cramps cover band), The Universal Donors (Type O Negative cover band) and Total Maniac and RjVj playing soundtracks from horror movies were all on the bill, and DJ Shellvira kept the music going with goth rock cuts.
