Upcoming Events: December 2022
Reflecting on 2022 as it is coming to a close, it’s been such a pretty good year for events that it’s hard to believe we were just living through a pandemic! As per usual, several venues only published their December calendars at the beginning of December (and some have events only published 2 weeks out!) , so we are playing catch up. By “we” I mean me. The Darker Side of Austin is a one-person operation with some folks helping out here and there.
Anyways, forget Xmas and NYE. From what I’ve seen adding events to the calendar, it looks like Saturday, December 17th is the biggest holiday event day of the month. The day starts out with the Bloody Rose & Tigress Pub Holiday Black Market from 12-5pm and the Yule Witches Market at Far Out Lounge from 12-5, followed by Naughty or Nice ‘Krampus’ Night Bazaar hosted by The Glass Coffin from 5-10pm and then the Nightmare Before Christmas Gothic Ball & Bazaar at Elysium from 9pm-2am!
Here’s some other cool holiday recommendations and other events we are looking forward to in December:
- The Darker Side of Austin and Bloody Rose Boutique present: A Horror Punk Xmas at Hanovers Draught House – Dec 9
- D.R.I. 40th Anniversary Tour at Come and Take It Live – Dec 9
- A Comics in Chaos Christmas at Kick Butt Coffee – Dec 9
- Krampus: The Fright Before Christmas at the House of Torment – Dec 9 & 10
- Catastrophe Ballet – Dec 10
- The 7th Annual Goblin King’s New Years Eve Ball at Elysium – Dec 31
There’s more great things happening, of course. As always we’ll be updating the calendar weekly.
