The Monster Bash

You know what they say: The older you are, the better your birthdays get. Oay, maybe they don't say that. Nevertheless, HP Lovecraft's birthday celebrations are still going strong, thanks to the Trunk Space and a band of Lovecraft fans who refuse to let 'em die.

T-Space hosts a party featuring artists and performers for the long-deceased author, who penned such weird fiction works as At the Mountains of Madness, The Call of Cthulhu, and Shadow Over Innsmouth. With poetry performances by The Klute, Manuel Paul Arenas, Richard Bledsoe, Neil Gearns; a theater performance from Arcana Collective; and stand-up from Sharkleberry Finn. This event will also offer up free cupcakes (it is a b-day party, people), and special commemorative HP Lovecraft zines by The Cult of the Yellow Sign for the first 30 guests.

The birthday festivities kick off at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 20, at The Trunk Space, 1506 Grand Avenue. Admission is $10 per person. Visit
