The Hunger 11 is this Saturday in the downtown Waterfront District

Anticipation is building for The Hunger 11, a major annual music and performance event in the Downtown Waterfront District, this Saturday from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The event is a six-venue Halloween Cabaret fundraiser presented by Definitely Superior Art Gallery. The venues include Crocks, Black Pirates Pub, The Foundry, The Sovereign Room, Gargoyles and Red Lion Smokehouse.

The event features 52 acts, including 43 bands/DJ’s and specialty performances, and thousands in best costume prizes.

The 19-plus event has a cover charge of $15, which gains entry into all six venues. ID is required (no advance tickets or wristbands). Patrons will receive a flyer program and wristband at the door, on the night of the event with times and locations for acts. Early attendance is advised.

More than 3,750 people attended last year.
