THE ENDLESS NIGHT VAMPIRE BALL™ events are a series of masquerade ball themed soirees produced by Father Sebastiaan of SABRETOOTH, which began in New York City in 1996 with the “Vampyre Ball of New York” and the “Main Event” in New Orleans over Halloween weekend. The name Endless Night comes from the William Blake poem “Ages of Innocence “ in which he states “Some are born to Sweet Delight, Others are born to Endless Night.”
Over the years the Endless Night is known for its many productions including Long Black Veil (LBV) at MOTHER NYC, Xorvia chiche fetish parties, Xcommunicate, Black Xion in Amsterdam, Lutetia Noir in Paris and Fang Club Gotham. Now all the events are simply known as “The Endless Night Vampire Ball.” Yet each varies in size from a small party in Paris with 300 to the larger event in NYC with 600+ to New Orleans with over 1000+ patrons.
The first Endless Night events cumulated with the flagship event, Endless Night Festival in 1998 over Halloween weekend in New Orleans. During this time the Vampire Ball of New York and Long Black Veil were running strong until the events of September 11th, 2001 in New York, but the New Orleans event still kept going. In 2005 the Endless Night Vampire Ball of New York was resurrected and continues in the original location at Element Nightclub in NYC.
Endless Night parties have inspired legendary clubs such as Hidden Shadows Realm of Darkness and the Black Veil party in Osaka Japan. In Fall of 2010 the Endless Night begins a 3 year world tour with events planned in Miami, New York, New Orleans, Paris, Chicago.
Many who come through the Gates of the Endless Night never truly know what to expect until after their first event. Burlesque & belly dancers, local and internationally renowned DJs weave a unique auditory experience, opera singers, live bands such as Inkubus Sukkubus, Cruxshadows and gODHEAD, a Mistress / Master of Ceremonies ranging from local celebrities such as Empress Chi Chi Valenti and Lord Chaz of New Orleans preside over a crowd dressed in a variety of costumes from medieval to steampunk to fetish.
What makes the Endless Night most unique is the vampire and masque ball theme touched off with a Belle Epoch salon noir from the esoteric renaissance of 1890s France. Always changing and morphing according to new and diverse interests Endless Nights is purely a unique experience which is unforgettable.
The Endless Night Vampire Ball is an event which is a neutral ground for all alternative tribes to unite in ceremonial pleasure, dance, music, aesthetic expression and performance. Amongst our patrons we have vampires, Vampyres, Strigoi Vii, Burners, LGBT, performers, burlesque dancers, artists, modern primitives, BDSM, fetishists, latex lovers, those of alternative spiritualities, musicians, dragqueens, fashionistas, metalheads, rockers, goths, steampunks and all of our friends and admirers. All we ask is you come with the intent of an open mind, spend countless hours thinking about your costumes and bring positive energies to share with all.
