Dances of Vice hosts its annual Edward Gorey–themed bash in a transformed Victorian space; partygoers are allowed to roam fully costumed through cobwebbed French Renaissance balconies and cobwebbed candelabras. While Brian Carpenter's Ghost Train Orchestra performs, join a ballroom of old-school ghouls reminiscent of the dancing scenes in Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell and grab a near-fatal shot of absinthe.
