Oh you better watch out…’cus he’s coming back to town! On Friday December 7th 2018, Krampus is at it again with the 8th annual festive-ish event:
A HOLIDAY-ISH CHARITY EXTRAVAGANZA
Who is Krampus? Only the swellest devil to accompany ole’ St Nick on his rounds during the holidays. Unlike Santa, he joyfully punishes the naughty by swatting them with switches…but who doesn’t? However, on this night he’s a devil with a cause helping those in need with a…
Bring in some new toys or cans of food and get in on the cheap (and some good feels)! All toy donations are taken directly to a Toys For Tots center to benefit less fortunate children during the holidays and all canned donations go to Burners Without Borders Detroit to help feed the homeless (click here for details).
But he’s not stopping there with his benevolent malevolence! He’s also helping to support local artists with a…
Buy some swell affordable art gifts for the naughty on your list (or for your naughty self)! You’ll find everything from small unique stocking stuffers to large original art pieces. And to make this a Black Friday you won’t regret, there’s also a…
Generously donated by various artists of the DAMNED Exhibition and the Krampus Bazaar, you can bid to take home some amazing fine art while helping the homeless! 100% of all auction funds go directly to Burners Without Borders Detroit to help purchase much needed supplies to create survival backpacks for the homeless (click here for details).
But wait! There’s also the 8th annual…
It’s a crap-tastic “exhibition” of holiday-ish ornaments and decorations created by the all-volunteer Krampus Redecoration Anticrafting Party (KRAP)! These tiny monstrosities re-imagined from thrift/dollar store junk will be haphazardly spread out all over the venue. And WTH also includes the Bad Gingerbread House competition (click the link to sign up)!
And for your “entertainment”, we once again bring you the hilariously disastrous…
Come experience a wild night of amazingly bad lip syncing, barely rehearsed skits and impromptu shenanigans loosely based on your favorite holiday television and film classics! Featuring Satori Circus, Lushes LaMoan, Magenta Demure, Bootsie La Fontaine, Scott Dambacher and lounge singer extraordinaire Konrad Lee!
And if that wasn’t enough, there’s also…
- Krampus Short Film Festive-ish Festival of short “holiday” films!
- Audience participatory Fugly Holiday Sweater Contest!
- A full bar with all the boozy trimmings and spiked punch specials!
- Swanky holiday lounge music all night…every-freakin’-where!
And THE BIG MAN HIMSELF (KRAMPUS) will make his grand entrance for a charity photo booth to hear how naughty you’ve been all year. Will you get switched? Will you get candy? That’s HIS call.
