Will Shuster's Zozobra

3 pm, Sep 08, 2011 | $3-$15

Man, life is tough. In the past year alone, the hospital workers went on strike, the county sheriff admitted to selling police supplies on eBay and resigned, the state caught on fire—again—and then there’s whatever Jerome Block Jr. thinks he’s doing. You could go whine to your family or start a blog, but why not give deforestation a chance by penning your woes on a piece of paper and placing it in the Gloom Box for Will Shuster’s Zozobra? Everything burns, including the police reports, mortgage documentation and divorce papers traditionally used to stuff the 49-foot papier-mâché monstrosity. This year’s inferno (we’re talking about Zozobra now, people, not Los Alamos) features the usual hodgepodge of fire dancers, moaning, Fiesta de Santa Fé royalty, moaning, partially clad performers and, yes, more moaning, as well as live music by Test Tube Panda, Shona Slovakia, Gordon Free Band and The Faculty. Old Man Gloom ignites at dusk, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the funnel cake. Bring your gloom by SFR’s offices at 132 E Marcy St. in advance, or track down the gloom station at the event.
