Here’s something weird: Art students in the Palettite Society staged a “Demonic Dance in Red” at the Minneapolis School of Art on April 13, 1928. It was the annual benefit ball, with over 100 art students and about 200 guests in various and bizarre costumes. Unfortunately, the band wasn’t named.
The entire building, at 200 East 25th Street, had been transformed through decorations to conform with the popular conception of Hades. There was a dragon 45 feet long, standing guard over a cavern filled with bats. Satan’s disciples danced in the cavern which, under normal conditions, is the auditorium of the school.
