Welcome to Night Vale

The brainchild of writers/creators Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, the cultish podcast Welcome to Night Vale plays out in bizarre news briefs announced by hypnotic radio host Cecil Palmer (played by Cecil Baldwin) from an imaginary desert town riddled with supernatural occurrences. With its bizarre blend of angels, dragons, hooded figures and “Sheriff’s Secret Police,” the twice-monthly program routinely inspires comparisons to the work of horror fiction hero H.P. Lovecraft — not to mention such unlikely scenarios as “A Prairie Home Companion, as narrated by Rod Serling” (The Awl) and “what might occur if Stephen King or David Lynch was a guest producer at your local public radio station” (The New York Times). Now anthologized in two books (Mostly Void, Partially Stars and The Great Glowing Coils of the Universe), Night Vale returns to the Alamo City for a live presentation of Ghost Stories, a new show featuring a score by electronic composer Disparition (aka Jon Bernstein) and live musical accompaniment from genre-bucking folk rocker Erin McKeown. $25-$30, 7pm Sun, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com. — BR
