Opening night of DRIP's Underground Vampire Bar sounds like a bloody good time


Known for their messy, paint-splattered dance shows, DRIP goes all-in on vampires every October. In addition to a new show about a vampire love story – complete with gallons of fake blood – the bar area gets decked out in gothic glam, with “blood cocktails” on the menu, including some served in blood bags. The vampire theme runs through the end of the month, but Thursday’s opening reception features musical performances by Sparky Quano and Meka Nism.

8 p.m. Thursday; DRIP, 8747 International Drive; $5-$8;
