The musicians talk balancing friendship and work, audience and artist boundaries, and all things spooky before headlining District Fray’s Cult Classic Halloween Party.
SPOOKY SEASON IN THE DISTRICT. My team has been looking forward to our combined October // November issue all year, a deep dive into all things fall. From cool weather style tips courtesy of Knot Standard Sales Director Emily Blumberh to 150+ haunted adventures, autumn escapes, weekend getaways and more, we’ve built our readers a stacked guide to fall in the District. And with our spooky issue comes We Are The Weirdos, Mister: District Fray’s Cult Classic Halloween Party on Halloween night at Dock 5. I’ve been dreaming of throwing this party for years, a nod to some of the most iconic films and music from the ‘80s and ‘90s — all with a spooky theme. Our cover subjects, The Legwarmers frontwoman Cathy DiToro and indie artist Cat Janice, will headline the party with a full cover band. We’re collaborating with Disco Mary Collective to create Instaworthy cult classic-inspired installations, plus a spooky vendor market, tarot circle, costume contest and interactive activations, pop-up performances and photo ops from “Beetlejuice,” “The Craft,” “Little Shop of Horrors” and other campy favorites. Register at bit.ly/wearetheweirdosmister, and in the meantime, we hope you enjoy our autumn rundown in the pages that follow. From the creepy to the cozy, we’ve got you covered.
