On the night of December 2, 2016, at around 11:30 pm, a fire broke out in a warehouse in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Oakland, where a “rave” dance music event had attracted an estimated 100 mostly young people in their 20s and 30s. The inferno took the lives of 36.
The event was Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast Tour — an “experimental” electronic dance music rave. 100% Silk is a Los Angeles-based label that features underground house and atmospheric/experimental music by artists such as Ital, Maria Minerva, Dylan Ettinger, Kaazi, and Innergaze. The tour was headlined by Golden Donna, a stage name of Joel Shanahan, a Madison, Wisconsin-based musician who survived the fire. (billboard)
On December 8, I did a post asking how those in the warehouse that night could have missed the many signs of dangers about the place — of not only safety issues such as clutter and dangling electric wires, but also spiritual signs of danger of devilish masks; statues and images of demons and pagan gods; and death symbols of skulls and a coffin (see “Oakland warehouse fire: Satan’s Hell House”).
Since that post, I came across another spiritual sign of danger which should have been heeded: the invitation posted on Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast Tour’s Facebook page.
The invitation’s black background color, the Gothic font, the coiled serpent, and the seven-point star all point to the demonic occult.
The 7-point star or heptagram is a symbol for Babalon, aka Scarlet Woman, Great Mother or Mother of Abominations — a goddess in satanist Aleister Crowley’s religion, Thelema, the motto of which is “Do As Thou Wilt”. The heptagram is also a “sacred” symbol in various pagan and witchcraft traditions.
