No Glitter Allowed

There may not be real-life fairies, busty vampires, or ripped, hunky werewolves out there, but it sure does feel good to pretend. That's where True Blood, Wednesday night's ode to the hit television series, takes its inspiration. The latest art nouveau event going down at 8 p.m. aims to turn Respectable Street (518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) into the HBO show's Shreveport, Louisiana's vampire club, Fangtasia. Helping ensure the transformation will be more than 35 artists displaying and selling their vampire-themed artwork. Some of those artists draw their dark visions from the supernatural world of Sookie Stackhouse -- others might just be aspiring fangbangers looking for a creative outlet. But True Blood won't just be about artwork. Expect live body painting by Devious Body Art's Georgette Pressler, music by Danxiety, and burlesque dancers taking the stage for a little bit of teasing. While all that goes down, full episodes of True Blood will be playing on a massive projection screen. Plus, Respectable Street will throw down on some ghoulish drink specials for all comers -- just don't expect a bottle of O Negative warming behind the bar for you.

Come dressed to impress, and please, no cameras (the undead hate that). No cover. Visit John Linn
