Marilyn Manson to host Halloween party in LA

He'll be master of ceremonies at the Roosevelt

Marilyn Manson is set to host a Halloween party in Los Angeles next week, acting as ’Master Of Ceremonies’ at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

Manson will be announcing each DJ, while his videos and graphics will be displayed to set the Halloween scene. The shock rocker was originally intending to perform at the party, but his guitarist Wes Borland is getting married the next day, and will not be in town.

Mix Master Mike, The Sounds and DJ Mom Jeans aka Danny Masterson will DJ, with additional sets from Andy Caldwell and Edski.

As previously reported, Manson‘s former bandmate Gidget Gein was found dead at his home in Burbank, Los Angeles on October 9 after a suspected drug overdose.

The bass player, whose real name was Brad Stewart, played in Manson‘s band from 1989 until 1993, when he was fired and replaced by Twiggy Ramirez.
