Part costume ball, part concert and all macabre Christmas merriment, The 7th Annual Krampus Ball offers an overstuffed stocking of amusements celebrating the goat-ish demon beast who punishes bad kids. There’ll be a Krampus Run outside the ballroom from 6-7 p.m., Krampus-inspired vendors, food and drink, and a monster of a music line-up including Medieval musician/dancer troupe Tottendanse, Krampus-themed Rammstein tribute band Krammpstein, furry, fun polka party band Hammerstein Band and L.A.’s theatrical metalers Rosemary’s Billygoat, all emceed as usual by Oktoberfest’s Festmaster Hans. Under 18 is OK with an adult guardian before 10 p.m., but it’s an over-18 affair after. Not really a kid event either way, so don’t bring them… unless they’ve been very, very naughty!
Alpine Village, 833 Torrance Blvd., Torrance; Sat., Dec. 7, 7 p.m.; $32.49. krampusball.brownpapertickets.
