To Live and Di(n)e in L.A. Event Details: Press Release: "After three successful, sold-out seatings since 2017, Drunken Devil will remount its immersive theatrical dining experience, To Live and Di(n)e in LA, giving guests a chance to once again dine with notorious Los Angeles serial killers and their victims. Partially inspired by the infamous Devil’s Night episode of American Horror Story: Hotel, this four-course dinner will see guests mingling with the ghosts of the most infamous figures in Los Angeles’ true crime history, as they navigate the city’s sordid past through cuisine, cocktails, and cabaret-type performances.
In To Live and Di(n)e in LA, guests will come face-to-face with Elizabeth Short, better known as the Black Dahlia; Harvey Glatman, infamously nicknamed the “Glamour Girl Slayer” for his harrowing methods of killing aspiring young models in the late 1950’s; Susan Atkins, one of the most prominent members of the Manson Family, and Charles Manson himself; and Richard Ramirez, also known as the “Night Stalker,” who terrorized suburban Los Angeles for years.
The four-course meal, created by chef Christena Quinn of Brack Shop Tavern, will feature dishes inspired by each figure and era, with thematically appropriate cocktails paired to each dish. In between courses, guests will experience dark burlesque, performance art, and more that will help guide the story of LA’s dark past.
The experience will take place on Friday, April 12, 2019, beginning with a cocktail hour at 7:30 pm.
The location will be released to ticket holders prior to the event. Tickets are $200.00 each for the strictly 21+ evening and include the four-course meal, cocktails, table wine, and haunting performances.
Tickets for To Live and Di(n)e in LA are now available at www.restlessnites.com/toliveanddinela.

Hellboy (2019) Original Soundtrack Release Details: Press Release: "Sony Music announces the release of HELLBOY (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) with music by Golden Globe, GRAMMY and BAFTA-nominated composer BENJAMIN WALLFISCH (SHAZAM!, IT, Blade Runner: 2049). Available everywhere today, April 5, the album features music from the hugely anticipated film, based on the Dark Horse Comics character of the same name. HELLBOY will make its theatrical debut on Friday, April 12, 2019, via Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label.
Of the soundtrack, composer Benjamin Wallfisch says: “I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Sony Music on the release of the HELLBOY soundtrack album. Mike Mignola, Neil Marshall, and the entire creative team have created an incredible next chapter in this iconic franchise, one that demanded a completely new approach to the score. Sony Music couldn’t be a better partner to bring this music to a wide audience and I’m grateful to them, Lionsgate and Millennium Media.”
Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action-packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, Stranger Things) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world. Hellboy also features Ian McShane (John Wick), Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0 and Lost), and Sasha Lane (American Honey). Summit Entertainment and Millennium Films present Hellboy, a Lawrence Gordon/Lloyd Levin production, in association with Dark Horse Entertainment, a Nu Boyana production, in association with Campbell Grobman Films.

Tales for the Camp Fire and Wildfire Relief Details: Press Release: "Horror authors across Northern California have come together to release Tales for the Camp Fire, a new anthology of short stories, to support wildfire relief efforts. All profits from the sale of the anthology will be donated to wildfire relief funds administered by the North Valley Community Foundation.
On the morning of November 8th, 2018, the worst wildfire in the state’s history erupted in the foothills of Northern California. While emergency efforts were immediate, the Camp Fire burned for seventeen days before it was finally contained. It destroyed the town of Paradise and burned over 150,000 acres. At least 85 people died in the blaze. The impact of the fire was felt across the entire region as air quality became the worst in the world.
When a group of local horror authors got together, the question of “what can we do?” was raised. “We’re writers,” said San Leandro resident and author Ben Monroe, “how can we can help with our stories?” Soon they formed a plan to produce a charity anthology, contacting horror authors across the region to ask them to donate stories. Some wrote new pieces for the book, while others submitted favorite reprints for inclusion. In the end, the anthology topped out with 24 great stories totaling over 300 pages.
“Tales for the Camp Fire is a brilliant collection of truly creepy tales by horror’s hottest voices! Dark, funny, heartbreaking, and bizarre. Highly recommended!” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-WARS and GLIMPSE
Tales for the Camp Fire is edited by Loren Rhoads and is being published by E.M. Markoff’s Tomes & Coffee Press. It will be available on May 2nd in both paperback and ebook formats through Amazon. Members of the publishing team are attending the Bay Area Book Festival in Berkeley on May 4 & 5 and will have copies of the book available for sale there. All profits from the book are going to be donated to the North Valley Community Foundation efforts to support the ongoing wildfire relief efforts.
“A brilliant editor and author, Rhoads skillfully weaves together a collection of new and old yarns to create an exemplary tapestry of horror literature that will spook fans of the genre for years to come." — Moaner T. Lawrence, author of “The Great American Nightmare”
The book includes stories by Clark Ashton Smith, the grandfather of horror in Northern California, as well as by Bram Stoker Award winners Nancy Etchemendy and Gene O’Neill. Tales for the Camp Fire ranges from fairytale to science fiction, from psychological terror to magical realism, from splatterpunk to black humor, all rounded out by a messed up post-apocalyptic cookbook. Through these pages roam werewolves, serial killers, a handful of ghosts, plenty of zombies, Cthulhu cultists, mad scientists, and a pair of conjoined twins.
About the Editor: Loren Rhoads served as editor for Bram Stoker Award-nominated Morbid Curiosity magazine as well as the books The Haunted Mansion Project: Year Two, Death’s Garden: Relationship with Cemeteries and Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues: True Tales of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox, and Unusual.
