TJ haunted house! Through Nov. 2!


The kids who organized the AMF fest back in September have hexed Tijuana's municipal auditorium (site of lucha libre matches and Zonkeys basketball games) into a haunted house of what I've heard to be cinematic proportions. Something about local horror film addict (and maker) Aaron Soto fashioning a faux Regan from "The Exorcist" to spew fake green vomit at everyone, among other grossnesses. It opens tonight and runs through Day of the Dead, Nov. 2.

Tied to all this is the Redrum music series, with a different local band playing nightly: La Diabla the 29th, Late Nite Howl the 30th, Dani Shivers the 31th, Maria y Jose the 1st and Juan Cirerol the 2nd.

The haunted house opens at 5. The bar opens at 9, followed by the band. It's 50 pesos for both or 30 just for the show.

To get there: the auditorium is about 10 miles from the border, on the south side of Boulevard Agua Caliente, but the shows are happening around back in the newer basketball annex. From downtown take one of the green buses or red colectivo taxis headed toward La Mesa, or just hop in a taxi libre or yellow cab at the border.
