Once a year we at The Steep and Thorny Way to Heaven pay tribute to one of our favorite musicians in a Night Carnival dedicated to an artist whose songs and characters inspire us to dress up, get down, and explore their unique musical worlds. This year, join us for an unforgettable night of performances, circus, dance, and music dedicated to the dark and romantic stylings of blues and rock legend Nick Cave.

Whether you’re in it for the Murder Ballads, or you have a strange fascination with gothic musings and tiny kittens, this Night Carnival holds dark and mysterious surprises just around each corner. So dress up as Jack’s Shadow or paint your right hand red, and come find the moon in the gutter: she’s under the bridge and in the shadows this May.

Join us for this very special tribute to Nick Cave and all his dark delights!

Come in costume inspired by your favorite character from a Nick Cave song, and you’ll be automatically entered to win some amazing local treasures in our Costume Contest raffle!

Part world-class variety show, part costume party, the NIGHT CARNIVAL is your invitation to drink and dance alongside the city’s finest fringe artists, and enjoy a revue ranging from music and dance, theatre, circus acrobatics, and more.
