The Satanic Temple Los Angeles and Das Bunker brought out the city's creatures of the night at Union nightclub's Black Mass. Live music was provided by 3TEETH, Lumerians and more. Doubling as a fundraiser for numerous endeavors such as women’s reproductive rights, there were three rituals during the evening – a destruction ritual, featuring music by one-man metal band Author & Punisher; an invocation ritual; and a bloodletting ritual. While the event celebrated the dark underbelly of Los Angeles, it also reinforced the unalienable ideas of freedom of expression and the rights to one's own body.
