There may not be real-life fairies, busty vampires, or ripped, hunky werewolves out there, but it sure does feel good to pretend. Thats where True Blood, Wednesday nights 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 shows Shreveport, Louisianas 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 wont just be about artwork. Expect live body painting by Devious Body Arts 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 dont expect a bottle of O Negative warming behind the bar for you.
