THANKFULL FOR HORROR!

The 4th Annual

HORROR FOR THE HOLIDAYS

November, 19th, 2017 at Come And Take It Live, Austin

Once again we terrorize the holiday season with horror! The 4th annual all horror and dark vendor market, Horror For The Holidays has grown and grown over the years, with last year bringing out 475 horror-seeking shoppers. If you’re looking for horror and dark inspired gifts for your friends and family — and you! — come visit this most baZaaR, bazaar. With over 30 vendors selling only horror, dark, alternative and gothic merchandise you’re sure to find tons of treasures. Come early so you don’t miss out on all of the unique items: horror and alternative clothes, accessories, art, gifts, home decor, collectibles, henna and face painting and more.

Keep the tradition alive by taking photographs with our Evil Santa. Professional photographer Andrew Gamble provides the memories. Meet Krampus and Jack Skellington and enter our multiple raffles throughout the day where you can win horrific prizes — including our traditional Turducken. Have a drink while you shop, enjoy the Bloody Mary bar and have a slice of pizza at Hoek’s Death Metal Pizza (on the premises). Lots of fun to be had for all. This event is free and is family-friendly but we caution parents that some aspects might be frightening for the wee ones.

Please join the FB INVITE to keep up to date and for a complete list of vendors.

HELLOWEEN 2: DEVIL’S NIGHT

 

Halloween is almost here, and we’re getting ready to celebrate, horror-style. Join us for this special event where we team up with our fellow horror and dark-minded groups here in Austin: Austin Horror Society, Austin Witches Circle, Blood Over Texas, Other Worlds Austin and Zombie Life.

Our 2nd annual Halloween party — made by horror fans for horror fans —promises a night of tricks and treats for you horror hounds. The night will be possessed by haunting music provided by DJ Dren Pasht — gothic, witchwave, industrial, new wave and general spooky cool sounds to make you shake your bones.

There will be an devious horror-inspired performance set by some of Austin’s best: Ruby Lamb (The Jigglewatts Burlesque Review, Satan’s Cheerleaders), Gemmi Galatic (Frisky Business Burlesque, Geekgasm Review),  Honey St. Claire, (multiple drag reviews) Juan Martinez (Sinister Hand Studios & sideshow) and MC’d by the magical John Maverick, costume contest.

After the sinful spectacle, a chosen few will compete in a costume contest to will a prize package of treasures and, of course, bragging rights. The contest was so epic last year that, to save time, we will be walking through the crowd to nominate creatures for the costume contest. Those nominees will enter the contest in one of three categories: Best Couple, Scariest and Most Original.

Among the creatures of the night, stop by and talk with our Tarot Card Reader, Andrea of Mystic Starlight Tarot. She’ll also have some horns available for purchase if you want to step up your sparkle demon game. And before the night is over, you can take pics in our horrific photo booth to impress your friends and family!

We know there is a lot to do this wicked weekend, but we hope you make this event a stop on your list, or better yet, the one and only stop for the night. You know how we do it. Long live horror!

DARK AUSTIN UNITES TO HELP

Those of us who dabble in the dark side are uniting together to give a helping hand to our fellow Texans who have been devestated by Hurricane Harvey. We want to show our support and gather to get donations at our home away from home, Elysium. There are several ways to help but our main focus will be gaining monetary funds from an amazing silent auction that will be full of dark delights to bid on. Cash/money is what’s needed most from the organizations helping. We may also be asking for supplies that you can bring to the event to donate; however, the needs are changing by the week so we won’t know what’s especially needed until right before the event date. Check the FB INVITE for up to date info.

For the envy, we will be teaming up with DJ Johnny Slugg’s Hell On Wax (Wax Trax tribute)! Industrial, metal, weird, trash, etc. An all vinyl (and some digital if you really, really need to hear something specific) DJ event.

SILENT AUCTION ITEMS:
• 2 V.I.P. tickets to Zombie Charge Race Series – Austin TX
• Drink & Eats package to Casino South Side Lounge and food trailer, Sunset Flip

SUPPLIES: For supplies needed, we will have a loading zone marked off in the front of Elysium so you can easily drop off donations and then stay and play or drive away! But we sure hope you stop in for a bit and check out the silent auction. Supply needs will be posted about a week before the event because needs are constantly changing. To keep up to date on items needed and other event info, pleas JOIN THE FB INVITE

(We are currently looking for amazing donations to the silent auction!! Please contact us)

At the height of the 80s horror film era the power of the demon-drenched lyrics of heavy metal music helped to spawn the phenomena of Satanic Panic. While the parents prayed for our sins we reveled in all that was evil. A time of pure rebelilous innocence that may never be repeated. This night we will celebrate one of the greatest times of horror – when blood traveled effortlessly between film and music.

LIVE BANDS:
HELLter Skelter – Motley Crue Tribute band
MOB RULES – Dio Tribute Band
Judas And The Beast – Judas Priest & Iron Maiden Tribute Band
