FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Detroit, MI - On Devil's Night (October 30) 2008 at the Tangent Gallery/Hastings St Ballroom in Detroit, there will be a congregation of 75 of the most malevolent fine art artists from across the nation and overseas to display over 150 of their darkest of creations at DAMNED: A Macabre Fine Art Exhibition (www.thatdamnedshow.com). From Oscar winner HR Giger to the freshest of talent, this sinister assembly will exhibit a diversity of artistries from the deeply depraved to the intensely introspective guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, captivate or repulse. This is not Halloween-themed art but a submergence within the shadowed realms of consciousness within an intimate ambiance of haunting ethereal soundscapes, refined freakshow vignettes and cirque-inspired stage performances.
DAMNED will feature special performances by the tantalizing circus hellion Miss Pussykatt fresh from her "grinder girl" act on NBC's America's Got Talent. Other devilish treats include the femme fatale performance troupe Devil Dolls, new dementias from Satori Circus, disturbingly exotic gallery teasers, Devil Girl hostesses, VIP area with an on-site chef, wine tasting, a gallery store to purchase art and much more! Aurally, the exhibition will be laced with original compositions by Life Toward Twilight and the haunting solo strings of Dixon accompanying the gallery vignettes.
Limited VIP tickets will be available for a most intimate of ambiances with a private two-hour preview of the exhibition with artist reception and special VIP-only vignette performances. Indulgences include an on-site chef courtesy of Centaur Bar with live preparation of delectable edible temptations, an exotic wine tasting compliments of Farmington Hills Wine & Liquor, a bevy of Devil Girl servers and other treats to come. After the preview, VIPs will have full access to the lush private mezzanine overlooking the public exhibition with their own private cash bar, side chef, video feeds and live VIP entertainment throughout the night until 2am...and yes, the Devil Girl servers as well. VIPs also bypass the entrance lines with their own DAMNED special speedy entry!
The DAMNED festivities begin at 7pm with a VIP Preview/Artist Reception with the general public opening at 9pm until 2am. General admission is $6.66 at the door, $5 in advance online or $5 with a canned good donation for the Gleaners Food Bank or the All About Animals no-kill animal rescue. Discounted $5 tickets are also available at Showtime Clothing in Detroit, Noir Leather in Royal Oak and V-Male Vintage Clothing. VIP admission is $33 at the door or $25 in advance online. No Halloween costumes are necessary but red dressy/sexy Devil-wear is greatly encouraged. 18+ welcome.
