Mark Jan. 30, 2016, on your concert calendar. That’s the date Oneonta’s Space Carnival has set for CarnEvil 3.
The bi-annual event was created as a way for Space Carnival to give back to its fans. Featuring carnival and space-themed artwork, carnival games and face-painting booths, the band encourages all in attendance to come in costume as a carnie or associated freak.
Tickets for this New York State Music-sponsored show went on sale Dec. 11 and can also be purchased at the Oneonta Theatre box office. Advance sale tickets are $10 and $12 at the door.
Previous CarnEvil events have been held at the band’s second home in Oneonta, the Black Oak Tavern. Due to popular demand, the third edition has been moved to the more spacious Oneonta Theatre. See footage of CarnEvil 2 below:
This event’s proceeds will go directly toward funding Space Carnival’s debut album. The band has put together an IndieGoGo campaign to help fund the recording.
Formed in spring 2013, Space Carnival plays a blend of high-energy disco, funk and progressive rock. The band’s roster includes Jeremy Kraus on guitar, Cameron Fitch on keys and vocals, Chris Meier on bass, and Nick Tassinari on drums.
