Creepy camping, a vintage trailer pop-up shop and more to do this week

Our weekly Red List round-up

By CityBeat Staff

Digable creepy camping

In a few months, San Diego will be in full-on Halloween mode, with haunted houses and trails filled with weirdos in hockey masks. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a good scare right now. This weekend, the Great Horror Campout comes to Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center, giving campers a chance to be truly terrified—or, for the more easily startled, moderately frightened. From 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 15-16, participants can choose how scared they want to be, ranging from the “Chicken Zone” to the interactive “Hell Hunt.” In addition to a pants-wetting chase by a maniac with a chainsaw (or so we imagine), accommodations come with a continental breakfast, parking, movies, a canvas bag and marshmallows. Tickets range from $99 to $139, depending on scare level.


Digable art

thinktankLocal performance-and-installation artists Debby and Larry Kline continue to entertain and educate us with their always interesting, often whimsical work. From 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, the Klines will discuss “Think Tank,” their contribution to ArtExpoSD, the pop-up exhibition currently on view inside East Village's Wonder Bread Factory (121 14th St.) The Klines' tank is made of paper and includes comic-style illustrations in black ink that tell the true stories of local military men and women. The way the Klines present the narratives works on multiple levels, helping to humanize the stories while also elevating the storytellers to a sort of mythical level through the comic-book-style art. This is the last event tied to ArtExpoSD, so be sure to check it out, if at the least to see some great artwork.  


Digable shopping

 
juliusandcoWhat do vintage trailers and trunk shows have in common? They’re two great tastes that taste great together, according to Julius & Company, the local designers organizing the Vintage Trailer Rally & Trunk Show. If perusing vintage trailers for retro clothing, home goods and accessories and arts and crafts sounds intriguing, swing by the parking lot at 3366 Adams Ave. in Normal Heights from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday Aug. 16. There’ll be a handful of local mobile businesses like Julius & Company (whose girly handkerchief is pictured here); Stop Shop, RollMy Sister’s ClosetZB Savoy Bowtie Co. and Sabrina Lee Studio hocking apparel and other artsy stuff, as well as a food trucks in case you work up an appetite while browsing.

Digable art party

killkoolOn Friday, Aug. 15, from 7 to 10 p.m., the Oceanside Museum of Art (704 Pier View Way) pays homage to San Diego County's skateboarding history and culture with Art After Dark: Kill the Kool. The evening's line-up includes skate-centric artwork, photography and custom boards on display plus live music from acts like pro skateboarder Dave Reul's The Skatanic Rednecks, who'll be performing what the museum describes as a"cross-hybrid of punk and country." In between bands, a DJ will spin songs that defined the local skate scene in the late-'70s into the 1980s. And that's just the half of it. While you take it all in, enjoy eats from Bull Taco, Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub and Breakfast Club Diner, plus wine, craft beer and mead from O’Neill Honey Company. Admission is $20, $10 for museum members.
