Dracula's Ball 02/04/12 with THE DROWNING SEASON, CRYO-MANCER & ANNE RICE giveaways! [04 Jan 2012|07:53pm]


Free tickets to Dracula's Ball / Chance to meet Anne Rice!

We're very pleased to begin the new year by announcing two fantastic promotions for the February 4th Dracula's Ball that we think you will be very excited about.

The first is that we have a decent (but limited) supply of *free* tickets for the upcoming Dracula's Ball event. To get one, all you have to do is pre-order a copy of Anne Rice's new book, The Wolf Gift, from IsoTank. Your name will be placed on a special Wolf Gift VIP list, and you'll receive FREE admission to the Ball! Be sure to take advantage of this special offer while it lasts. When IsoTank runs out of books, they'll be out of free tickets. Here's the link to pre-order the book:

Feel free to pass that information on to other friends of your who are Anne Rice fans. It'll be the perfect chance for you to get them out to Dracula's Ball!

As if that wasn't wonderful enough, Anne and her publisher have graciously offered us five door prizes to give away in a special midnight drawing. Each of the five winners will receive a copy of The Wolf Gift, which Anne will autograph for them IN PERSON when she is in Philadelphia a few weeks later. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to win a chance to meet Anne Rice in person!

The next Dracula's Ball event takes place on Saturday, February 4th, 2012. Doors open at 9pm and our event ends at 2am. Tickets are $16 and are on sale now through Ticketmaster (online and in person), Digital Ferret (in person) and IsoTank (online, free shipping for 5 or more tickets). We'll keep our website and Facebook page updated with ticket information. Here's the link to order tickets from IsoTank:

When we met Anne Rice last month to discuss upcoming projects (and to thank her for sending us the wonderful dress we displayed at the last Dracula's Ball), she was very excited to tell us about her upcoming book, The Wolf Gift. A brand new venture into the realm of dark fiction, The Wolf Gift is a modern and passionate exploration of the world of werewolves.

Pre-order this book from IsoTank and receive a free ticket to the upcoming Dracula's Ball event in Philadelphia on February 4th, 2012. Your name will be on a special "Wolf Gift" VIP list at the venue and you'll receive FREE admission to the Ball!

At Dracula's Ball, there will be a drawing for door prizes at midnight. Five winners will receive a free copy of The Wolf Gift, which will be autographed to the winner by Anne Rice in person. The autograph will be signed in Philadelphia in mid-February.

***Artists Appearing at Dracula's Ball, February 4th, 2012***

As usual, we'll have 3 DJs spinning in 3 separate rooms, so you'll always be able to find a solid groove you can dance to. DJ Spider returns from North Carolina, DJ Miko LeStrange represents DC, and DJ Zircon comes from nearby New Jersey. Now let's meet our live bands:

CRYO-MANCER: Cryomancer is the product of the talents of frontman/guitarist Kryss Oroborus and bassist/vocalist Sparks. Completely restructured and relocated in 2009 the band has changed their sound drastically from electro to a unique hard edged, guitar driven industrial metal/coldwave style.
STAGE TIME - 10:35pm

THE DROWNING SEASON: Putting the rock back in goth-rock, this Baltimore band has been laying down sonic napalm on the dancefloor for nearly twelve years. Major influences include The Sisters of Mercy, The Mission (UK) and Fields of the Nephilim. This is their second appearance at Dracula's Ball.
STAGE TIME - 12:05am

This Ball takes place in our favorite location, Shampoo Nightclub, at 7th & Willow Streets in Philadelphia, PA (Mapquest and Google Maps info can be found on our website). As always, the Ball is open to all ages, but you must be 21+ with proper photo ID to drink. Shampoo has an on-site free parking lot but it fills up very quickly for the Ball. Check our map of available nearby parking on Facebook if you're arriving late. Personal photo cameras are welcome. Large professional camera rigs with unpleasant flash bulbs are not. Video cameras are not allowed.

This is our first Ball of 2012 and we're very excited to be offering you free tickets and personal autographs, courtesy of Anne Rice and her publisher. Join us on February 4th and you may win a chance to meet the Queen of Vampires herself!

Best wishes,

[Patrick] & Dracula's Ball Staff

10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like, Part 1 [06 Oct 2010|09:25pm]


Last year, to celebrate the Halloween season, I made two vampire fanmixes. (Taste of Blood and We Hunger.) This year, I present to you my list of 10 Vampire Dudes I Really Like. Some of them, you will already know. Others, you might not be as familiar with. But I bet you'll want to "get to know them" a little better. ;-)

Dracula's Ball, October 30th! Celldweller, Sepharim Shock, DJ's, Candy, + More! [03 Oct 2010|06:31pm]


The next Dracula's Ball event takes place on Saturday, October 30th and includes live performances by Seraphim Shock and Celldweller as well as three DJs spinning in three separate rooms. All ages are welcome. If you want to drink alcohol, you must be 21+ w/photo ID. Tickets are $16 and are on sale now at Ticketmaster (in person or online), IsoTank.com and Digital Ferret CDs. Our Halloween event has sold out for many years running.... As such, we recommend advance tickets in the strongest possible terms. Every year we turn away several hundred people who want to attend but did not purchase tickets.

Costumes are encouraged but not required. Although this is our Halloween event, please note that it takes place on Saturday the 30th of October. Of course, a few hours after we open, midnight will roll around and we'll kick off the official start of Halloween!

Dracula's Ball takes place at Shampoo Nightclub in Philadelphia, on Willow Street between 7th and 8th Streets. The club has a large enclosed parking lot which is free, but it does fill up early during Ball events. Doors open at 9pm and the event ends at 2am.

Joseph Laycock's Interview w/Whitley Strieber (Radio) - Real Vampire Community [10 Jul 2010|12:13pm]

Joseph Laycock's Interview w/Whitley Strieber
Eclipse of the Vampires - July 10, 2010

With the latest Twilight Saga film exploding at the box office and the books racing out of the stores, it's worth asking the question: what's going on with vampires, anyway, and Joseph Laycock ( author of Vampires Today: The Truth About Modern Vampirism - http://www.amazon.com/Vampires-Today-Truth-Modern-Vampirism/dp/0313364729 ) has the answers! Learn the truth about modern vampirism as you take a journey into the revealing subject with an expert--and led by Whitley Strieber, whose own book, the Hunger, is considered to be among the greatest of all vampire novels.

What was the inspiration for the Hunger? Did Whitley Strieber encounter some of the same vampire societies that Joseph Laycock has uncovered? Go as deep as you can go into this strange and dangerous modern lore, with a leading expert and a leading writer in the field.

Vampire Discussion at a University [02 Jun 2010|02:48pm]

In the fall (october to be exact), my university campus will hold a day of discussion devoted to the myth and history of vampires.  I wanted to ask if anyone knew of any vampire discussion groups, authors or researchers in New England or the Midwest.  We're in Southern Ohio so the closer the better but we're willing to branch out.

Speakers can include: researchers, professors, writers, discussion groups, those who believe they are vampires, people who participate in the culture or anyone who has something useful to add to the discussion.

If you know of anyone around where you live or would like to participate, I'd love to hear from you :D

realworldbites Multi-fandom Vampire RPG [15 Jan 2010|08:00pm]



Who in their right mind would fill a house with real, vicious (and not-so-vicious) vampires? Reality TV producers! When they're backed by the right law firm, that is. You, glorious creature of the night that you are, have been tracked, noted, and invited to come live the dream. A beautiful house, plenty of blood, shady dealings and wacky mishaps, all (more or less) broadcast live to the whole world. What more could any vamp ask for?

The Real World Bites, running since February 8, 2009, is a way to get your crack, your angst and your plot on all at once, simultaneously showing love for and poking horrible fun at vampire fiction and reality TV. It's a sandbox game with lots of group events thrown into the mix. Your character's storyline is totally up to you and who you interact with! With Wolfram & Hart running the show, plenty of vamps have gotten mixed up in ominous doings, and plenty have spent their time drinking margaritas and playing video games. It is a slash and smut-friendly zone, with crack and drama enough for all. 18+ muns and canon (non-OC) panfandom vamps only, please!

As season 2 begins, alliances, friendships, rivalries and tensions continue to form. You never quite know what the Producers will spring on them next, or what they're plotting with this show to begin with. New vamps are always joining, and whether it's a war over hair product or a zombie massacre, there is always something drawing everyone's attention.

Intro with gift [13 Dec 2009|06:46pm]

I'm new to this community, but I have been enjoying reading and watching the videos posted here. I have something I thought you might find enjoyable as well.

New Moon - A Condensed Film Parody. That's a link to part one, as it is in three parts. I've been told that it's enjoyable for both Twilight lovers and haters. I'm reasonably Twilight indifferent, and thought it was a hoot, especially toward the end.

Vampires That REALLY Suck! [20 Nov 2009|12:55pm]

Hey guys! Found this on FEARnet.com and wanted to share-- a guide to vampires that REALLY suck!


Do you like your vampires sparkling, a la Twilight, or blood-thirsty and animalistic like in 30 Days of Night? I prefer the latter…
