Friday the 13th: Dirty Thirties Carnival Line-up Revealed!

Friday the 13th Fest Part II: Dirty Thirties Carnival

Riverwest Public House (815 E. Locust) doors at 8pm, $7 admission

Music by The MilBillies, performances by Skully Sati, Nina Nazir, and Jeanette Daft. Emceed by Scotty Damned. Also featured: a mini-reptile zoo on display by the Fox Valley Herpetological Society and a Wheel-O-Prizes game.

Presented by Milwaukee Paranormal Conference

AMAZING! After a fantastic horrorpunk themed Friday the 13th Fest last May, show collaborators Tea Krulos and Skully Sati decided to return with another celebration of the notoriously unlucky day. This time around they’ve assembled a classical carnival theme with bluegrass music and sideshow style performance. There will be acts involving swords, snakes, veils, and more! You’ll not be disappointed, but you may leave feeling a lil’ dirty!

Take a look at our sensational performers:

The mystical Skully Sati, a new take on old school burlesque. She seduces and charms with her wicked and unique musings!


The mesmerizing Nina Nazir, a belly-dancing beauty who entrances onlookers with her ability to perform effortlessly to any type of music including traditional belly dancing, rock, and modern fusion.


The amazing Jeannette Daft, a talented dancer who will stun you with her sword dancing skills!


The dazzling Dimitra performs mesmerizing hypnotic dances from around the world including a special dance with a LIVE serpent!


PLUCKY! Featuring guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, and fiddle, Milwaukee bluegrass band The MilBillies will provide the perfect soundtrack for our Dust Bowl era themed evening. Scotty Damned (of Creepy Little Things) will act as our evening’s ringleader as emcee of the show.


LIVE! Perhaps the most unique feature of the show is a mini-reptile zoo where people can see a sampling of animals from the Fox Valley Herpetological Society (a derivative of the Madison Area Herpetological Society), a group that educates enthusiasts and the general public about frequently misunderstood reptiles and amphibians.

We’ll also have a Wheel-O-Prizes people can spin for $1 to win tarot readings, drinks, Milwaukee Paranormal Conference swag, candy, and more!

It’ll be a night to remember!
