Cincinnati, OH – The Ghost Empire Collective, a group of 7 local artists who show artwork together, are partnering with SOS Rock to bring an exciting Halloween show to one of the best live music venues in the Tri-State, Northside Tavern. It will feature live music by 3 cover bands The Spiders (David Bowie), Charlotte Sometimes (The Cure) and Duct Punk (Daft Punk), live art and Halloween themed artwork by painter/illustrator Mike Maydak, painter/website designe rKurt Einhaus, illustrator/poster designer Jaimie Filer ,photographer/visual artist Snotty RLE, videographer/visual artist Justin K. Hite, and visual artist/Ghost Empire founder Anthony “Tank”Mansfield.
This will mark Ghost Empire’s second show of the Fall, coming off the heels of their very successful last show, The Comic Book Expo After Party at Mainstay Rock Bar. The group has had successful shows at The Famous Neon’s Unplugged, MOTR Pub, and The Avenue so far in 2012 and participated in the launch night of Avengers vs. X-Men at Arcadian Comics & Games.
“We are very excited about this event and getting a chance to work with SOS Rock,” said Mansfield. “Matt Ogden has been one of our biggest supporters since we formed GEC in late 2011 and we are very excited to be working with him and his crew.” Ghost Empire will be making live art as the bands play which makes for an entertaining experience for the crowd. “We feed off the music and the energy as the bands are playing and it is reflected in our work as we go from blank canvases to a finished piece in an hour in front of the crowd.” There will also be a costume contest with prizes that include Ghost Empire Collective prints.
