Well, the last Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas open house for 2019 is Saturday starting at 6:00 pm, so it’s time for that one song that best sums up the reason for the season. Sadly, we’ll never get an updated live version, mostly due to guitarist Colin Grigson’s untimely jenkem overdose, but at least we have the memories.
Due to a death in the family, this Saturday’s Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas has been cancelled, but expect a full return to form on Saturday, December 7. If you’re really nice, I might even sing for the occasion:
Heading out to the Deep Ellum Creative Market on November 9 and 10, and anyone in the vicinity is welcome to attend. For obvious reasons, this will be the last outdoor show of the year, and the second-to last external before we return to the gallery on November 30 for the first of this year’s Nightmare Weekends Before Christmas. Let’s enjoy the weather while it lasts.
The autumn Triffid Ranch event schedule starts this weekend, so anyone who can’t make it to Spooky Spectacle in Fort Worth has other options between now and the beginning of December. You still don’t want to miss it, though.
According to everyone’s least favorite superhero, Captain Pedantic, autumn doesn’t start for another two weeks, so saying that it’s Halloween season is somehow supposed to be folly. For those of us who survived the month-long kidney stone known as August, though, this a very special time. We’re on our way to jacket and sweater weather. We’re fast approaching that wonderful season when the best home furnishings are in every store. And if it stays warm enough for a few more weeks that night swimming and stargazing can be done at the same time? That’s just gravy.
