Darkness reigns supreme in UNHOLY NIGHT, the eighth annual installment of CHAOS & CANDY, the holiday spectacular from Adam Dugas.

This year, break out the fur and leather for a journey to the sunless regions near the North Pole. Heavy metal mayhem ensues at a magical gathering of creatures from Yuletide folklore and beyond including Krampus, Perchta and the Witch of Broken and Dangerous Toys. Naughty children get what they deserve!

The roster of monster talent includes rock goddesses Lizzy Yoder, Theo Kogan (Theo and the Skyscrapers, Lunachicks) and Yana Chupenko (Shiny Mama, Wench); musical performance artists Angela DiCarlo, Joseph Keckler, Amber Martin and an ensemble of singers, dancers, and puppeteers. A blazing rock orchestra shreds a sheaf of original songs in this unforgettable Krystmasse fantasia.

Funktional was launched in 2009 by Los Angeles based designer Jennifer Park. After graduating from University of California, Irvine as a Economics major she wanted to pursue her passion in apparel by going back to receive her degree in Fashion design at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandizing in Los Angeles. Upon graduation in 2000 she worked as a designer for several contemporary brands. With that experience Jennifer was able to hone her skills. During that time, she felt the need to design a line inspired by her fashion sense and her target customer, who demonstrates modern styling, understands refined details, and luxurious and high quality fabrication at reasonable prices for every woman’s budget. Funktional collection ranges from wearable edgy silhouettes, silk tops and dresses, all season knitwear, and innovative tailored jackets.
