Dark Suburb gears up for Halloween show

GHANAIAN alternative Afro Rock band, Dark Suburb has been billed to perform at this year's Halloween celebrations at the Elite's Bar in East Legon, Accra on Sunday, October 30.

According to Mr. Junaid Limann, Manager of Dark Suburb who also doubles as CEO of New Era Entertainment, organisers of the show, it is to prep the group up for a number of activities for the rest of the year.

 “It was epic at the Garage last year and those who attended the event can attest to the beautiful crafts on display. The crowd was thrilled, they had mad fun because Dark Suburb always brings something unusual on stage.

“I can assure patrons that they will be served better because the show will be the official opening of Black Suburb’s Christmas show. If patrons had a good time last year, then they should gear up for loads of fun at the upcoming event,” he said.

The  show was started by Dark Suburb last year to mark its customised version of Halloween celebrated around the world on October 31.

Dark Suburb is an alternative rock band that has adopted and refined a culture of masquerades in the continent as their image. Thus giving new impetus to a costume art form that is prevalent in many African societies.

The band wears skeleton masks to highlight the point of our shared humanity and to remind the world that we are one people regardless of sex, race or social status.

While their costume has been a major attraction for their band, the group has equally earned a good following with songs such as Ego Be, Kelewele, I Wish, I Dey Feel You Die, Shelter, Get Out and Don’t Hurt Me.

Mr. Junaid Limann was very hopeful guests will have a good time with Dark Suburb’s collection on the night.
