Summer of Blood – Interactive Horror Event (July 22 – 23)
The haunted hotel
$25 to $80 | 9 p.m.
This isn’t your usual walk through a haunted house, as The Haunted Hotel said in its description: “Leave your Sunday outfit at home and get ready for carnage.” This is no ordinary event. This is an extra bloody event, so dress up for a mess and get ready for an “interactive” haunted house.
Not Compliant 2
Dave Armstrong Extreme Park
Pay what you can | Doors at 5 p.m., music at 6 p.m.
How can you get more punk than a live punk/thrash show at a skate park? The festival returns for its second year with a lineup of seven bands, all but one of which are local. Plus, Belushi Speed Ball is headlining again, so you know you’re in for a great time – and they’ve promised a set that’s even bigger and better than last year’s. (Be sure to bring plenty of water, though, and see the link above for more information on how skaters and cyclists can participate in special pre-show races.)
Christmas in July
Falls City Beer
No coverage | noon to midnight
I don’t know about you, but I could use a little Christmas cheer early this year. Then join Falls City Beer for a Christmas event in July with live music by pop punk party band – Throwback Thursday (and maybe a visit to St. Nick itself). There will also be a special Mango IPA called Party Juice, just for the occasion.
