As the goblins, ghouls and witches prepare for a night of festivities and rituals this year, Zebulon will host “A Devil’s Night of Movies, Music & Mayhem” with the premiere of Brutal Realty Inc., a short film starring actor and musician London May (drummer for Samhain). Centered around the odd pairing of real estate sales and Satanic black metal music, the dark comedy has received critical acclaim at a few international film festivals for its tale of a demonic black metal drummer known as The Summoner who goes from a malevolent musical monster by night to a dignified real estate agent by day, all with hilarious, bizarre and bloody results. Fans will also get to witness the live debut of May’s newest band Symbolism — which features members of legendary death rockers Christian Death and punk icons The Adolescents. Arrive dressed to distress for the costume contest. The evening is set to feature special DJs, surprise guests and more. This will be a night full of comedy and caustic black metal music that’d make Satan proud.
Zebulon, 2478 Fletcher Drive, Elysian Valley; Wed., Oct. 30, 8 p.m.; $10. zebulon.la/events/.
