There will be a Welcome to Night Vale listening party at The Lovecraft Bar, on Feb 15th, 2014 in Portland, co-hosted by Hermetic Library anthology artist Valerie Herron. This is apparently intented as the inaugural Lodge meeting of The Hooded Figures, Portland chapter for what could become a planned monthly event.
“The Welcome to Night Vale Listening Party is happening THIS SATURDAY! You don’t want to miss it. Hosted by Matthew Carr and myself, hang out and listen to the 2 latest episodes of WTNV on the stellar sound system of the Lovecraft Bar. There will also be a raffle of official WTNV swag.
A bit of background info for those of you scratching your heads: Welcome to Night Vale is a brilliant podcast. Influenced by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, conspiracy theories, and community radio, WTNV is a hilarious and beautifully written production. Narrated by Cecil Baldwin as the Night Vale community radio announcer, WTNV illuminates the strange happenings in the desert town of Night Vale. I recommend it highly, so highly that I think you should listen to it in a group setting!” [via]
