Dia de los Muertos Party


Editorial Review

In Mexico, Dia de los Muertos - the Day of the Dead - is a time to remember friends and family members who have passed away. At the Wonderland Ballroom, it's a night to remember the late country-rock pioneer Graham Parsons, whose birthday is Nov. 5, and other deceased musicians. The night is hosted by the Highballers, a local rootsy country-rock band whose twangy guitars and tight harmonies recall Parsons and Waylon Jennings. There will be a Day of the Dead altar near the stage for anyone who wishes to add a picture or memento of loved ones, and the bar will be pouring pints of Chocolate City Beer's Cerveza Nacional, a dark and tasty Vienna lager.
