“Men feared witches and burnt women. It is the function of speech to free men from the bondage of irrational fears.”—U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis (1856–1941), Whitney v. California, 274 U. S. 357 (1927)

The Unveiling proved to be an incredible, historic evening. Our utmost gratitude to those who volunteered their time and resources to make the event a huge success. Many thanks to all of our unbelievably amazing guests and performers who graciously accepted the intricacies of the evening, endured downpours, the media, protesters, and sweat. We couldn’t have made this happen without everyone’s cooperation and participation – and for that reason all who attended played a vital role in standing firm in our resolve to reject censorship and embrace Satanic ideals. We will not be silenced by the voices of oppressors. HAIL SATAN!

FINAL_AWEB8Original event description:

The Satanic Temple invites you to join us for a night of chaos, noise, and debauchery at The Unveiling, a hedonistic celebration introducing the controversial Baphomet monument accompanied by provocative performances and installations.

Never before seen in public, The Satanic Temple Baphomet monument is already the most controversial and politically charged contemporary work of art in the world. Weighing one ton and towering at nearly nine feet tall, the bronze statue is not only an unparalleled artistic triumph, but stands as a testament to plurality and the power of collective action. The event will serve as a call-to-arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats.

Come dance with the Devil and experience history in the making.

Featuring performances by:

WOLF EYES, Detroit noise legends
SADIST, Dark punk from Boston
DJ: WILLIAM MORRISON of Skinny Puppy/OhGr
DJ’s: MATTE BLACK & MICHAEL DOYLE
