Dare if you will to leave reality behind and enter the world of ghouls, musical chaos, and mysterious darkness at Chicago's 5th Annual 93XRT/Miller Lite Boogeyman Ball. This Halloween night, Friday, October 31st, loud harmonious riffs will beckon costumed crazies to the gothic Congress Theatre, where Rusted Root, the North Mississippi Allstars, and Grandaddy will let loose Chicago's biggest, baddest Halloween extravaganza. Doors open at 8 p.m. and entertainment continues til 2 a.m.

Complimenting this live musical lineup, the Halloween spectacle continues in the sinister foyer with a DJ spinning into the witching hour while the Midnight Circus performs its amazing aerial feats high above and its roving theatrical trickery down in the crowd. Partygoers can participate in a huge costume contest where over $1,000 will be awarded in cash and prizes for the most creative characters.
