The Night Owl Spirit Social – POSTPONED
March 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 10:00 pmFree – $35
NOTE FROM PROMOTER:
P O S T P O N E D
Dear Night Owl Fans and Friends,
In light of recent events concerning the health pandemic – and subsequent cancellation of major events such as SXSW, the NBA and numerous other large event gatherings, our Night Owl Team has decided it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone the Spirit Social to a later date. The new date for this event is undetermined at this time.
Our number one priority is the health and safety of our city, our fans, our guests, and our own team members. Postponing the event is a step in that direction and the delay will ultimately give us more time to prepare and potentially have an even bigger and better event.
For those who purchased event passes already, you have a couple of options for refunds. An email has been sent to all who purchased passes, so please check your email and if you don’t see anything, email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or clarifications.
The Night Owl Team apologizes for any inconvenience this postmonment causes. We will be working hard to plan and bring this incredible event to fruition at a later date.. Again, your safety and health are our top priority, so stay healthy out there! We’ll keep everyone updated.
Join us for a social gathering and celebration of spirits and the people who communicate with them at the Spider House! This event includes a full day of panels with guests handpicked by The Night Owl Podcast, a live podcast taping, meet-ups with panelists/guest speakers, live music, and an outdoor market full of vendors and divination readers!
We’ve partnered with visiting Wisconsin-based paranormal podcasters “See You on the Other Side” who will host an additional lineup of games, panels, and activities on the outdoor stage!

hosted by SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE PODCAST
Let’s meet each other! Whether you love UFOs, the Mothman, fairies, or conspiracies, we can all agree on one thing… that there’s just something about the paranormal community that makes us a little different. And that’s what we’re here to celebrate! So through games, fun, and trivia it’s time to make some new friends and discover more about the weirdness we share together.
PARANORMAL PODCAST PARTY GAMES
Cards Against Telepathy? Would You Rather With A Wendigo? Playing Poker with a loaded Zener Deck? We’re throwing hosts from different podcasts together to play some games and stirring the pot to see what happens.
CONFESSIONS OF A GHOST HUNTER
From a supposed gang of serial killers on the Mississippi River to the Charles Manson murder house to a brutal stop on the Underground Railroad, filmmaker and author Scott Markus gives a rundown of the methods he used to investigate his most extreme cases.
SUNSPOT – LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE
Hailing from Weird Wisconsin, Sunspot writes paranormal anthems based on the topics they cover on their podcast, See You On The Other Side. Sci-fi geeks with their tongues in their cheeks, it’s an acoustic show full of fun and humor. We guarantee you’re not going to see another band in Austin this week sing a song about Scott Bakula right before dedicating a track to Stanton Friedman.
PARANORMAL OPEN MIC
We’re ready to believe you. This is your chance to tell your paranormal experience in front of a live audience. Sign up in advance and you might get a chance to meet someone who understands more about what you encountered. Or even better, someone who’s experienced the same thing. You are not alone. We keep each story to 5 minutes to make sure that the ghost train keeps on rolling.
