Tickets are on sale and moving swiftly for the 4th annual affair where Halloween, costumes and music collide. Railroad Earth’s 4th annual Hangtown Halloween Ball has shown considerable growth since its inception due in part to the incredible mountain setting with top-shelf accommodations and an unrivaled lineup of diverse and well known performing artists. This year will be no exception with over 30 performing artists scheduled over the three-day event including three nights of Railroad Earth, moe., The Meter Men, Leftover Salmon, and bay area favorites ALO among others. Plus, with the addition of the late night music hall, an array of artists will also have the chance to perform a full-night of music in a more intimate indoor location each night. The 2014 Hangtown Halloween Ball will feature late night performances with such talent as Jeff Austin, The Motet, Dead Winter Carpenter’s and more. Also known for its fantastic family atmosphere, Hangtown Halloween Ball will also feature a number of day-time activities for kids of all ages including pumpkin carving contests, jam sessions and workshops loaded with fall-time fun while adding to the holiday festivities and overall atmosphere of the event. Set to take place at the gateway of the High Sierras in picturesque Placerville, CA tickets are moving fast for the 4th annual harvest-time extravaganza.
