Back for a second year, the annual Vampire’s Ball encourages the dark creatures of the Minnesota night to come out and party. Show off your most menacing dance moves as Pirate Twins spin tunes. The duo is composed of Scary Lady Sarah, who is founder of Nocturna, the longest-running (almost 30 years!) goth night in North America, and William Faith, a former member of Christian Death and a founding member of Faith & the Muse. Aerialists and burlesque performers will add to the entertainment, as will a fetish fashion show, a virtual reality torture chamber, and artist pop-up booths. Dress in your bloody best; there will be a vampire costume contest. Or take your maiden voyage into the dark arts with an onsite vampire makeover. 18+.
