What: Krampus / 4 Year Anniversary Party
When: Sunday, Dec. 7th
Time: 5 pm – 10 pm
We are turning 4! And yet again, celebrating our birth with weirdest of weird holidays, Krampus. Nothing says bar anniversary party like German, Anti-Santa goat demon that shakes chains at small children.
“Krampus is a beast-like creature from the folklore of Alpine countries thought to punish children during the Yule season who had misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. Krampus is said to capture particularly naughty children in his sack and carry them away to his lair.”
Holiday miracle, Krampus falls near the anniversary of opening, so every year we eat Germanic food, drink German beer, listen to metal, and dress up as Christmas demons, horns and all, to celebrate the fact that we exist. We like to imagine that our bar is Krampus’s lair.
This year we’ll be joined by the incredible occult witch metal of Serpentskirt. They say:
We came together under a super moon. For inspiration we listen to the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Babes in Toyland, Black Tambourine, The Cure, Siousxie and the Banshees, Le Tigre, Chelsea Wolf and more. We read tarot cards and write spells into our songs. We are not afraid to get fast and LOUD. We are not afraid of anything.
Opening for them is the pyschadelic freak out terror jazz of 2001: A Bass Odyssey, a solo dude playing double bass (electric and upright).
