From today's Globe and Mail, yours truly, reporting from Basel, Switzerland:
Distorted, terrifying faces lurched out of the darkness at every turn. My ears were ringing, assaulted by the unrelenting din of diabolic music reverberating throughout the city. A group of unearthly creatures bore down on me, drums clattering death rattles. I pressed myself into a doorway hoping they would pass me by - a friend had already gone missing, swallowed into the maelstrom of the freaks who had taken over the night. Frankly, I wasn't entirely sure I'd ever see him again.
And it goes on like that.
