The 3rd Annual 80s Video Dance Attack Halloween Party! Hosted by McMenamins Crystal Ballroom AND Lola’s Room, this spooky 80s extravaganza is the perfect way to celebrate the scariest holiday of the year! All your favorite 80s hits plus plenty of Halloween themed videos! Our supersized holiday setup plus tons of surprises as well.

We sell this event out every year so make sure to buy your tickets in advance.

Before it mutated into a weaponized haze of reality shows, MTV aired a novelty known as the music video. These bite-sized works of art, which married pop songs to striking imagery, revolutionized the entertainment industry and ushered in an era of music known as “new wave.” For the task of curating and introducing these fresh sounds and flamboyant sights to audiences, MTV even created its own version of the disc jockey—the VJ.

Though MTV has sent its stable of video jockeys out to pasture, VJ Kittyrox carries the pastel, shoulder-padded torch of Adam Curry and Nina Blackwood as she masterminds the 80s Video Dance Attack. For the last seven years, this popular shindig has united generations of Portlandians with its five-hour feast of ’80s-centric sensation. Across 10-foot screens, VJ Kittyrox projects classic videos from artists such as Duran Duran and Michael Jackson as audiences of Breakfast Clubbers and Pretty in Pinkers perfect their cabbage patch, running man, and Pat Benatar shimmies. A bombastic, thumping sound system and a dazzling light show accentuate the time warp as audiences deck themselves in ’80s garb and shake away memories of unsolved rubik’s cubes.

    If there’s one thing I love more than Halloween…it’s the 80s!

    This year I’m dressing up as a cupcake. Not a cute, nice, slutty cupcake… A CUPCAKE. I made it all from household items and it’s large and glorious. So far I’ve impressed many and need to impress the masses at Crystal Ballroom. If chosen I promise to have the maximum amount of fun possible. MAXIMUUUM!!! Halloween!!

    This would be an amazing place to be for a PDX Halloween! My boyfriend and I already love going to the regular 80s nights so I can only imagine how awesome this is!

  22. Daryl Dixon October 24, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

    Because life is rough in the post-zombie apocalypse world, and I think everyone agrees that they’d like to see Daryl shake his ass to some 80s jams.

    While still wearing his crossbow because, well, safety first.
