When you run a late-night talk show, holidays give you the easiest material. This year, Halloween gave WTR a plethora, thanks largely to a terrifyingly terrific lineup of guests!
Fright Town, Portland’s premier haunted house, presented a dozen of their finest and scariest monsters, who adorned the stage most of the night, whether they were singing their own “Monster Mashup” or being backup dancers for our musical guest.
Speaking of, Cody Berger (the frontman for PDX rock outfit Talkative) brought the ruckus, playing a pair of tunes backed by the very talented WTR house-band THEM! THE BAND! for a one-of-a-kind musical collaboration that had the audience on their feet.
Finally, Screamvina Ghoul presented a “horrorble” medley of performers from her monthly goth-themed variety show, doubling down on the Halloween theme with a scary showcase. This, plus appearances by newsworthy men Donald Trump & Doc Brown, from Back to the Future (featured in SNL-style impressions), made for one of the top performances Who’s the Ross? has ever presented…which is really saying something after 611 shows!
Who’s the Ross? performs every Tuesday night, 10pm at Dante’s (1 SW Burnside). For more information, visit whostheross.com
