Space available in our building!
Starting Sep 1, you can get space in the building that houses the Gemini & Scorpio Loft, and in the loft itself. New studio rooms have been built out on the first floor, and we reserved the largest ones to share as office, storage and craft space. Ideally we'd like to see them split between 2-3 performing arts groups and bundled with rehearsal and show bookings upstairs, but we're also open to individual co-working and co-crafting shares. Learn more and apply here: http://bit.ly/GS_office. Or, to get your own space, see http://www.bandspacesnyc.com -- the room layout is here. (If you're going to do quieter things, please request our side of the building! It's A-C.) For anyone renting a room in the building, we'll offer discounts on any Loft rentals for meetings, rehearsals and shows.

Hawkins, Indiana. 1983. A little boy is missing. Help us find Will: is he in the forest? Hiding in his secret cabin? Is that him calling? What is making those lights blink?
We're transforming a two-floor 10,000sq ft warehouse into an immersive environment directly inspired by Netflix' horror hit "Stranger Things." Enter the upside down...if you dare. Get lost in the forest. Face off with a mind reader. Jump into an epic Dungeons & Dragons game. Chill in the blanket fort. Eat all the Eggos. Join a seance to find the missing kids. Plus all the 1980s music you can handle, and so much more.
Our favorite DJs putting a spin on 80s classic and the Stranger Things soundtrack, mixed with our usual eclectic and irresistible dance music. With: Reaganomics & Joro Boro.
Costumes required for entry:
This is our annual love letter to all things dark and grotesque. Usual Masquerade Macabre style welcome: dark carnival, aberrations of nature, cabinet of curiosities, dark Victoriana, evil funhouse, steampunk, Jan Svankmaier & Brothers Quay films, Freaks, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. For "Stranger Things," think horror + 1980s...think creepy forest creatures, aliens, Jason, ET. But please remember: if we have to ask, it's not a costume (meaning: 1980s casual won't cut it).

These events offer an amazing opportunity for capturing some of the most creative, colorful party goers in NYC. We allow cameras at nearly all events, but please ask if you want someone's portrait. If you're a professional photographer, get in touch -- we always offer free entry to photo & video professionals who send us their work after.
*All ticket tiers offer the same access to the event. An additional $25 gets you a commemorative Masquerade Macabre hip flask engraved with the monster hybrid Victorian couple from our usual event flyer. The engraving is vintage-style blind etching, not the modern black laser. We like it classy. Flask pic: http://bit.ly/GS_flask
