When Alice Cooper tribute band Dragontown Dan played their most recent concert at the Dickens Tavern and Opera House in Longmont, Col., the last thing they expected was a legendary concert hall ghost to set their 8’5″ purple albino Goldenchild reticulated python loose in the venue. There is a storied history of paranormal activity within the facility, especially in the artists green room where the incident occurred.
