Summer of Blood – Interactive Horror Event (July 22 – 23)
The Haunted Hotel
$25-$80 | 9 p.m.
This isn’t your usual stroll through a haunted house, as The Haunted Hotel put it in their description, “Leave your Sunday best at home and be ready for carnage. This is no ordinary event.” This is an extra gory event so dress for a mess, and be prepared for an “Interactive” haunted house.
No Comply 2
Dave Armstrong Extreme Park
Pay what you can | Doors at 5 p.m., music at 6 p.m.
How can you get more punk than a pay-what-you-can live punk/thrash show inside a skate park? The festival is returning for its second year with a lineup of seven bands, all but one of which are local. Plus, Belushi Speed Ball is headlining again, so you know you’re in for a good time — and they’ve promised a set that’ll be even bigger and better than last year’s. (Make sure, though, that you bring plenty of water, and check out the link above for more info on how skaters and cyclists can compete in special races before the show.)
Christmas In July
Falls City Beer
No cover | Noon to midnight
I don’t know about you, but I could use a little Christmas cheer early this year. So join Falls City Beer for a Christmas in July event with live music by pop punk party band – Throwback Thursday (and maybe a visit from St. Nick himself). There will also be a special Mango IPA called Party Juice, just for the occasion.
52nd Annual World Championship Dainty Contest (July 23 – 25)
Free | Times vary
The 52nd Annual World Championship Dainty Contest is upon us. The celebration lasts all weekend at the recently renovated Hauck’s Corner. It’s a “new” bar and restaurant with more than a century of history. So head down to Germantown and check out Hauck’s new hang, and stay around for a little music, food, and Dainty!
