A peak into the phenomenon of occult revivals. Arrive early to hear a playlist of '70s to contemporary occult music curated by Erik Davis!

About this Event

Based on his pioneering work in the recent book High Weirdness: Drugs, Esoterica, and Visionary Experience in the Seventies, author and podcaster Erik Davis will explore the phenomenon of occult revivals, comparing and contrasting some of the factors that made the early 1970s and the late 2010s hotbeds of occultism, witchcraft, and visionary experience.
