Metallica Guitarist Kirk Von Hammett is keeping HORROR interesting at the 2nd Annual Fear FestEvil with murder and music!
A tasty Murder Mystery Dinner/ VIP Party at the legendary Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA. is set to take place on FRIDAY APRIL 10, followed by a spectacular two-night Fear FestEvil musical punch at RockBar Theater on Saturday, April 11th and Sunday, April 12th.
On the 10th, guests attending the Fear FestEvil VIP Party will enjoy a classic night of ‘whodunnit’ mystery madness, dining alongside Kirk Hammett, touring the infamously eerie and atmospheric mansion, and trying to figure out who killed who! Guests can expect twists, turns and clues from some very special ‘horror royalty’ as they try to crack the mystery open.
On Saturday April 11and Sunday April 12, Fear FestEvil friends heading to the RockBar Theater can expect to see some of the finest pieces in any modern horror collection as Kirk Von Hammett unveils more of The Crypt publicly, before throwing down some heavy music courtesy of Meshuggah, High On Fire, Orchid, Blues Pills, Agnostic Front, and Asada Messiah. Sirius Radio’s Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin and 107.7 the Bone’s Nikki Blakk will preside over proceedings. Other guests that are starting to appear on the event’s Facebook page are: Bela Lugosi Jr. and Derek Riggs.
It has always been my intention that Fear FestEvil events carry both the weird and the loud,” says Kirk Hammett, “and what better way to achieve another extension of what we want to do than eat dinner in a haunted house while solving criminal acts before a weekend of super kick-ass music?!”
Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil kicked off last year in San Francisco at the Regency Ballroom. The inaugural event featured highlights of Hammett’s world famous Crypt Collection, an array of panels and guest speakers, live musical performances, and various on-site vendors.
