Despair Sanctuary is a drone metal vigil for all who are weary. It is a sacred space where all are invited to hold negative emotions together.

It will feature a curated drone metal playlist (amplified to fill the whole sanctuary with sound), poetry readings, performance artist Willie the Genius, and a live concert by Chthonic Rites, a new Brooklyn-based group featuring violin, electric guitar, and electric bass.

Attendees are also invited to engage in a calming activity during the vigil. Materials will be available for: drawing, coloring, journaling, yoga, and candle lighting. Therapists, Christian ministers, and Satanist ministers will also be present if anyone needs a listening ear.
