Happy Halloween everyone!
We will release video of the performance from the Daft Punk Halloween party in he next several days. The lights, the dancing, the costumes, the crowd — it was phenomenal. For now, check out the Photo Flipbook video put together at Shootbooth + thanks to all who came out to + supported the party on Saturday night!
This just in.
The party at Windmill Studios this Saturday night is SOLD OUT.
No tickets will be sold at the door as we’ve reached the legal capacity of the space. Come find us on Wednesday as we parade up 6th Avenue with full dance crew, float light show, pyramid, and… wait for it, a Technologic baby puppet!!
We held our last dance rehearsal yesterday and the crew is amped to show this thing around town! The above photo is from our work session with the talented programmers at Hack Rock City who are killing it with the light display! There’s much more developing in the final week before the party, so keep checking in for updates!
Some more exciting fabrication photos!

Thank you, again, Olivia Chow!
What are you wearing for Halloween, Internet?
More sneak peaks coming!
@kthread you are going to be so badass in this!!
This is starting to get VERY EXCITING. We have been practicing our robot-butts off on John’s amazing choreography. We did a run through of the entire performance on Sunday and we all started to BELIEVE. You do not want to miss this. Here come a few sneak previews of our incredible costumes. The designs are all by the fabulous Olivia Chow. She is taking us to the next level. Thank you, Olivia!
FUNDED! We couldn’t be more thankful for all 220 of you who chipped in to bring Daft Punk Halloween Alive.
Our parade float dance crew is set! A few photos from our first official rehearsal with choreographer John Doyle leading the pack.

We’re officially funded!* Thank you ALL for your help. Or, in the words of our Halloween Ringmaster, AKA Slaghammer:
My Brilliant Backers!
Get ready for a robot to get gushy…
All 178 of you (so far) are fantastic humans for supporting this hare-brained scheme of mine. Three years ago I tried recreating the Around the World music video dance amongst a ragtag group of friends for the parade. We cobbled it together last minute with semi-coordinated costumes and semi-improvised dance moves at the last minute and marched down the street blasting Daft Punk to everyone’s delight. We made it to the parade and made it through the routine twice before the rain came down. Hard. Soaking wet, we retreated to a house party and delighted some more people with our dance interpretation. Everyone involved had a great time and could sense the seed of something bigger, grander,harder, better, faster, stronger!
Fast forward to today, right now, I look around at all the great energy that surrounds me and I do a little dance myself. The energy level with every rehearsal is through the roof, with everyone soaking up John Doyle’s brilliant direction and choreography. The programmers at Hack Rock City are taking the performance to a whole new level with their lighting design to accent our dancers. The costumes will come together soon enough and our posse and float is gonna blow everyone away!
I hope to personally thank all of you one day, maybe boogie with you at the party or the parade. I just checked that last sentence -WE HAVE A PARTY AND A PARADE!! ALL THANKS TO YOU!!!There’s many juicy details to share in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!
A special thanks is due to the core group of Daft Punk Halloween (some of who I will now only refer to as Mummy 1 or Skeleton 2, haha!) Thanks for all your hard work and feel free to do a little dance.
WORK IT! MAKE IT! DO IT! MAKES US! HARDER! BETTER! FASTER! STRONGER!
