June's SPIRITS with SPIRITS
GHOULA meets for cocktails in haunted places on the 13th of each month. “SPIRITS with SPIRITS” is a casual social gathering of regional ghost hunters and those that just like ghost stories. Open to all, from the curious skeptic to the passionate phantom pursuer. Make friends, and toast a ghost! Let's put the “Boo!” back into “booze.”
All those who attend will receive a free (square) G.H.O.U.L.A. button. If you already have one, please wear it so others can find you, without asking the staff about our group.
THE DATE: June 13th, 2012 (Wednesday)
THE PLACE: Hyperion Tavern
1941 Hayperion Ave, Silverlake (Map)
THE TIME: 10:00pm to the witching hour
"Playful ghosts have interrupted our tour"

GHOULA is going to do something a little different this month (we just couldn't resist this unique opportunity). Instead, of the normal "SPIRITS with SPIRITS," we will be celebrating local ghost lore (with libations) in a celebration of Southern Italy's traditional "Night of Ghosts" (Notte dei Fantasmi) According to legend, if you die on this night, you yourself will become a ghost. Also, it was four years ago on this holiday that GHOULA launched the first SPIRITS with SPIRITS. So, come down to the Hyperion and celebrate our anniversary, and see what you are in for in the afterlife!
Join us for a night of ghost lectures, music, dances, and images, and music with DJ Don Bolles and DJ Xian. Guests include... Cristofer Sanders of A & E BIO's 'My Ghost Story'! Paranormal researcher and founder of LOWFI (League of Western Fortean Intermedists) Skylaire Alfvegren. Dr. Paul Koudounaris, author of The Empire of Death, will present his lecture on Sicilian Sex Ghosts--modified and fortified with NEW sex ghosts he has not previously discussed! Award winning country music musician Dan Janisch will sing traditional ghost songs! Famous Russian diva Zoetica Ebb will discuss Russian ghosts! Black light ghost art and a musical interlude narrating famous haunting by Rich Polysorbate and Clowns and Fetuses! Special guest (g)host Dr. Doomhaus (Mike Odd from Rosemary's Billygoat, acting as deranged man in an archaic looking suit!)Many others still to be added! Ghost videos!
