Legends will host a Halloween party featuring disc jockey Don Winsley in his first headline appearance at Appalachian State University Thursday night.

Winsley, who last performed at Legends with Cherub on Aug. 29, will bring his uptempo, psychedelic party beats to Legends, which hosts a musical costume party every Halloween. The popular DJ hails from Asheville.

The event will be a dance-oriented costume party.

“It’ll be the biggest party in town,” said Appalachian Popular Programing Society advisor Randy Kelly.

Kelly said the prize will include a pass to several upcoming shows at the venue and will exceed a $100 value.

“[Winsley] brings the dance party atmosphere that Appalachian State students crave,” said Stage Council Chairman Merrick Marquie.

“Almost all of Don’s shows are dance parties, but the concept of it being an ‘Electric Halloween’ was proposed to him and he loved it,” Marquie said.

The doors will open at 9 p.m. at legends on Halloween. Admission is $4 in advance and $6 at the door.

“We want people to have a good time on Halloween and that is what the night is about,” Marquie said.
