It’s fitting this institution of esoteric knowledge, that has amassed a loyal community of followers who share a gothy disposition and twisted curiosities, plans to celebrate the first year inside the Gowanus home where it’s been pumping out creepy programming and hosting deathly exhibitions almost nonstop. Care to party with them? Step right up to the Festival of Arcane Knowledge and ensuing Devil’s Masquerade. Stick around for the real party when the Devil’s Masquerade takes over the building, complete with costume contests, DJs, a special cocktail, and hopefully dancing, unless of course everyone’s dead tired from the day’s lectures.
