The Satanic Temple - Arizona Chapter proudly hosts As Witches Burn - A Dance Party!
Celebrate the Fall with The Satanic Temple Arizona Chapter’s third annual celebration at the Quarry in Bisbee, Arizona on Saturday, November 17th, 2018 starting at 9PM
Join us for this exhilarating evening where we free ourselves from the shackles of persecution in a night of music, debauchery, and liberation. Prepare to live deliciously and have your senses enticed with sights, sounds, tastes and smells that will leave you craving for more!
All PREORDERED tickets to "As the Witches Burn" will receive Lucifer's Feather of Liberty as an event keepsake. During the performance portion of our evening, attendants who ordered feathers will be asked to step up and indulge as the Witches cast their spells.
(Feathers can also be purchased at the merch table, day of)
"The significance of the symbol of Lucifer’s Liberty feather is threefold:
1) It stresses that most important component of the Lucifer myth: the apostate angel’s revolutionary struggle for freedom
2) It underlines the Romantic refashioning of this liberty-loving Lucifer as beautiful rather than bestial
3) It designates the luminous rebel angel’s celestial revolt as the inspiration for terrestrial Man’s quest for self-determination." -The Satanic Scholar:

R.A Sanchez has been producing music for 17 years under different monikers and project names. His latest solo project, Black Baptist, is a complete rebooting of his artistry, focusing intently on creating frequencies that resonate in different ways to the human body and mind. Using bass guitar, vocals, saxophone, pedals and software he wrote to process the audio, each performance is a new, improvised composition, personalized for each audience.
Back, for a 2nd year, by popular demand...
Lana del Rabies is the solo rhythmic dark electronic music project of intermedia artist Sam An. LDR's music references darker genres like noise, industrial and darkwave, without outright adhering to any single musical movement. Her first release In The End I Am A Beast was released by Los Angeles based label Deathbomb Arc in 2016.
Description of LDR by Deathbomb Arc:
"Producer and vocalist Lana Del Rabies combines beats, noise, synths and a passion for horror soundtracks into a futuristic brand of goth that still loves the technologically curious days of early death rock... Addressing the ever growing PTSD of American society, LDR is a dreamlike voice, at once conquering while still lost in the haze."
"On her 2nd album, ‘Shadow World’, deep horizons of intensity and beauty manifest in ways anyone that has seen her perform live knows she is the master of."
She has performed with Clipping, The Body, Planning for Burial, Rabit, M.E.S.H, Lingua Ignota, JPEGMAFIA, Ritualz, Machine Girl, Negativland, AJJ, Hide, Tropic of Cancer, Lower Tar, Coppé, and more. She has also played festivals, including HoCo Fest, and in museum spaces, including MOCA Tucson.
LDR is based in Phoenix, AZ.

Special Thanks to:
- The Hostest with the Mostest (Owner of The Quarry): Dana House
Dana moved to Bisbee, Arizona in 2012 from San Diego, and opened The Quarry Bisbee in August of 2014. She have always been a participant in alternative lifestyles and thought processes, so the LHP was a natural choice for her from the time she was a young child. Owning her own business, not tolerating the patriarchy, being a single mother who is now married to a woman, and working very closely with addicts and society's downtrodden has reinforced her connection to the LHP and TST of Arizona. She believes that is very important to remain politically and socially responsible as an advocate for those that cannot in this country, and TST allows her to channel this passion. For the last three years, Dana has graciously hosted TST AZ's end-of-the-year celebration and we look forward to bringing down the house, once again, this year!
"Special thanks to Dana House and all of the staff at The Quarry Bisbee for hosting The Satanic Temple - Arizona Chapter for the third year in a row. Somehow we manage to make every year wilder than the last!" - Stu de Haan, TST AZ Media Liaison and TST General Counsel.
