The fangs have it! It’s October, and vampires are hot. Halloween party weekend might still one week away, but you can get started early with Secretroom’s Fangtasia party this Saturday, October 22 at Sidebar.
Every fourth Saturday of the month, Secretroom.net hosts an event at the private upscale venue 79 Popular (club inside Sidebar). This month’s theme is vampires. More specifically, the party is inspired by Fangtasia, the vampire bar featured in HBO’s “True Blood”. A popular theme among those in the Atlanta Underground Club Scene, Secretroom has had a few “True Blood” and Fangtasia parties in the past.
This Saturday’s Fangtasia party will have vampire Go-Go dancers–just like Fangtasia in the show. DJs 313, Threv (host of “The Mobius” on WREK 91.1 FM), Jennocide, and VJ Anthony will all be spinning a mix of electronic dance music, dark 80s, and more in two rooms of dancing and sound.
The theme is vampire, so be sure to sharpen your fangs and wear your finest. There will be an awesome prize for the six best-dressed vampires: free tickets to the Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse! (Read the review.)
The setting for Secretroom’s Fangtasia party is going to be such a cool environment that filmmakers are actually coming to shoot scenes for their movie during the event. “V2K: Vamps in the City” is a vampire action/horror story about a random cast of characters from different backgrounds and ethnicities that find out that they are related by blood with ties to Dracula in Transylvania over 300 years ago. Show up in full vampire gear, and you might just find yourself as a featured extra! Don’t want to be on film? Don’t worry. You can easily avoid the cameras if you do not want to be filmed.
Cover this month is only $5 with vampire fangs, $7 in costume, and $10 in street clothes. October birthdays get in free plus one guest!
