The Conjuring 8/3/19

Hosted by Tony Spera (Director, New England Society for Psychic Research) and son-in-law of paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren

Are you a fan of “The Conjuring” and “Annabelle” films? Are you interested in the mysterious and sometimes terrifying realm of the supernatural that inspired these films? Do you want to know more about the case files of famed paranormal researchers Ed & Lorraine Warren? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then join us on August 3rd for an event like no other at the Narrows.

For this supernatural evening, we welcome you to join us as Mr. Spera discusses the real stories of the Warren Case films, including “The Conjuring” and “Amityville Horror” cases. After you hear these intense stories, Mr. Spera will present the Conjuring mirror, a five-foot antique mirror used for summoning spirits, as well as other infamous and diabolical objects from Ed & Lorraine Warren’s Occult Museum, which houses the largest array of haunted artifacts and items that have been used in occult practices throughout the world.

Along with these detailed accounts, you will get to witness an actual exorcism of a farmer from Massachusetts and hear actual recordings taken from the Enfield Poltergeist case featured in “The Conjuring 2.” The Enfield Poltergeist is a case of demonic possession that the Warren’s helped investigate for a family in England.

Participants will also view a video tour of the museum, hosted by Mr. Spera and the late Ed Warren who died in 2006. In the video, Mr. Warren discusses in detail the various artifacts housed within the museum.

Lastly, Mr. Spera will answer any burning questions you may have about the paranormal world.

Hayes Carll 6/6/19

The chorus to the title track on the new Hayes Carll album, What It Is, is a manifesto.

What it was is gone forever / What it could be God only knows.
What it is is right here in front of me / and I’m not letting go.

He’s embracing the moment. Leaving the past where it belongs, accepting there’s no way to know what’s ahead, and challenging himself to be present in both love and life. It’s heady stuff. It also rocks. Continue reading
