HARD Haunted Mansion: Closest We've Been to the Third Reich
Halloween at the HARD Haunted Mansion brought out the big guns for L.A.'s all-age night walkers and candy ravers. The sold-out event was held at the historic Shrine Auditorium, a landmark event venue and home to many of Hollywood's Emmy and Grammy award shows. But last night the HARD dance promoters threw down one of the best Halloween parties in L.A. this year, a piercing electro-charged DJ dance party with sets from Justice, Basement Jaxx, Soulwax, Buraka Som Sistema, Steve Aoki, Major Lazer, and more. Even the smog was neon.
