The crowd: Just in case you couldn't tell these very attractive and mildly anti-social types would rather be anywhere besides the HARD Haunted Mansion, they were very fond of saying, "Ugh, is this Skrillex?" to every single track of cartoonishly blown-out bass music that served as the filler between LA Vampires and Zola Jesus. It probably was Skrillex, though.

Personal bias: Really, at some point, one of these witch house acts is going to "accidentally" rip off "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah" on some "My Sweet Lord" tip.

Random Notebook dump: One thing becomes abundantly clear watching Zola Jesus in action. She can totally dunk a basketball if she put her mind to it. (Jokes, she can't be taller than 4'10".)

The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
