A Halloween concert tiled "The Witching Hour," with performing artists and a costume contest, will take place at Northern Michigan University. The event begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, in the Northern Center's Grand Ballrooms. It is the second annual concert presented by Northern Michigan Artist Discovery (NoMAD). The general public pays an entry fee of $10 cash, and NMU students enter for free with a student ID.
Artists include California-based indie surf rock band Spooky Mansion. Supporting act Ain't Afraid is a hip-hop and R&B duo of twin sisters from Detroit. Also playing is the local indie alternative band, Passed Out Curbside, formed in Marquette and consisting of NMU students.
Attendees are encouraged to wear a costume and participate in the contest with a chance to win prizes. There will also be a photo booth. NoMAD is partnering with local nonprofits that will have information tables set up outside of the ballrooms before the show.
NoMAD is a campus club run by NMU students passionate about the Marquette music scene. Its goal is to bring up-and-coming musical talent to NMU, exposing the campus, Marquette and U.P. communities to new music.
