Goth Prom has come and gone, and Halloween is a few months away. But this Saturday, First Avenue revelers will be encouraged to indulge in the macabre, dark, and mysterious. Vampire’s Ball will focus on ’80s goth, with tunes, exhibits, and more celebrating the era’s darkness. Dress in your best, as prizes will be given away. During the party, music will be spun by “New York City’s Remix King” Justin Strauss; local DJs Angelica Ottavia, Necronancer, and Stainless Steel Providers; and Brooklyn author/DJ Andi Harriman, who will also lead a pre-party talk titled “Goth History 101.” Artists showcasing their work include Rachel Girard, Caitlin Karolczak, Aleister White, and Scott Seekins, and Trash Film Debauchery and TimeSquid will team up for a multimedia installation. 18+.
