The next Kirk Von Hammett Fear FestEvil event will be a Murder Mystery Dinner / VIP Party at the legendary Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA on Friday April 10th, followed by another spectacular two-night Fear FestEvil musical punch at RockBar Theater on April 11th and 12th.
On the 10th, guests attending the Fear FestEvil VIP Party will enjoy a classic night of whodunnit mystery madness, dining alongside Kirk Hammett, touring the infamously eerie and atmospheric mansion, and trying to figure out who killed who.
Guests can expect twists, turns and clues from some very special horror royalty as they try to crack the mystery open.
On Saturday the 11th and 12th, Fear FestEvil friends heading to the RockBar Theater can expect to see some of the finest pieces in any modern horror collection as Kirk Von Hammett unveils more of The Crypt publicly, before throwing down some heavy music courtesy of Meshuggah, High On Fire, Orchid, Blues Pills, Agnostic Front, and Asada Messiah. Sirius Radio's Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin and 107.7 the Bone's Nikki Blakk will preside over proceedings.
"It has always been my intention that Fear FestEvil events carry both the weird and the loud," says Kirk Hammett, "and what better way to achieve another extension of what we want to do than eat dinner in a haunted house while solving criminal acts before a weekend of super kick-ass music?!"
