Hey there vampire lovers, do you know what big event is quickly approaching? Shampoo Nightclub’s hugely popular Dracula’s Ball. One of the biggest vampire parties out there, perfect for the vamp fan looking for kickass live music, wicked costumes, dancing and an overall good time.
Here’s what the Dracula’s Ball’s official website has to say on the event…
“Dracula’s Ball is first and foremost a party. The common thread that runs through all of our guests is the desire to have a good time in an unusual and exciting atmosphere. Some have a passionate affinity for vampires that has been part of their lives forever. Some have occasionally tuned in to an episode of True Blood or scanned the racy parts of an Anne Rice book. Whether you feel deeply drawn to vampires on a personal level, or you just think they’re sexy or cool, we welcome you.
While our Halloween event is definitely the most anticipated Ball of the year, Dracula’s Ball takes place every three months. It is held exclusively in Philadelphia and is the largest event of its kind in the country. The Ball has been held at a variety of venues around the city for over a decade.
Obviously, our party has a strong vampiric theme. We do our best to create an atmosphere that suggests dark romance, a hint of danger, sensuality, and all things nocturnal. We do not promote nor do we allow the drinking of blood or any other unsafe practices at our events.
The Ball features two live bands who play short sets during the event. Our bands and DJs come from around the world; a number of European bands come to play their first-ever American concert at Dracula’s Ball. A list of bands along with photos of some previous entertainers can be found in the photo gallery. Our guest DJs play music in a variety of genres to fit our general mood, including gothic, new wave, industrial, synthpop, metal, EBM, eighties, world music, and more. Fast, slow, sensual, hard, dark, mystical, heavy, loud, lush; the list of musical adjectives is long…”
The upcoming Ball’s two bands are Black Tape For A Blue Girl and I Scintilla.
