West Seattle Halloween: Skeleton Theatre rocks the (bone)yard

It’s a rock concert and rockumentary rolled into one at Skeleton Theatre. You know it’s serious, because the yard-turned-stage has people walking around wearing headsets – and the crew platform is right up over the SKELETON THEATRE sign. Once again this year, Chris Walker and friends have engineered the tale of a megagroup gone bad – and then gone back together – with the animatronic skeleton rockers onstage, interspersed with narrated video clips from their backstory on a big screen up above. You can sit or stand on the lawn to watch:

If you don’t get to 36th/Hanford to check it out before 9 tonight, you have six chances tomorrow (Tuesday) night, roughly at the top and bottom of the hour, between 6 and 9. We’ll add a video clip here after we get back to HQ.

ADDED TUESDAY MORNING: Though we haven’t gotten our clip going yet, Ted Johnson just shared his HD iPhone excerpt (thanks!). It starts with a section of the “rockumentary” and gets to the “live” singing after about the 5-minute mark:

Almost forgot to mention – this year’s production starts with a preview of next year. Otherworldly, shall we say.
