In 2004, The Bad Things hosted the first Cabaret Macabre in a warehouse space called Jem Studios in Georgetown, now home to The Mix and other businesses. Held on Halloween, it was a night of strange costumery, drunken debauchery, sideshow splendor and junkyard sounds. The lineup included performances by Seattle Semi-Pro Wrestling, some stomach-churning suspension piercing by PURE, music from Reverend Glasseye, Dark Carny, Baby Gramps and, of course, The Bad Things, who were pulling double duty as bartenders, door staff, stage techs and security!
Here we are ten years later and most of those organizations are now defunct. Georgetown is quickly turning into a hipster mecca and the local cabaret scene has grown into a nationally recognized phenomenon. Luckily, two veterans from that faraway night are still with us, the legendary Baby Gramps and, of course, The Bad Things.
Over the past decade, The Bad Things have since hosted Cabaret Macabre in a variety of venues and neighborhoods and have featured acts from around the world. This year, in an effort to re-capture the underground party vibe of the first Cabaret Macabre, the Bad Things are taking over Capitol Hill's FRED Wildlife Refuge for one night of dance, aerial performance, burlesque and music.
Dia De Los Muertos-themed pageantry is highly encouraged! We'll be announcing more details on the party as they emerge but we can guarantee an immersive evening surrounded by Seattle's favorite macabre miscreants that you won't soon forget.
