Artist and AB+L Radio host (ARTS x CRAFTS) Carla "King Carla" Aaron-Lopez is putting ATL's underground creative scene in focus with this event that's centered around literature, visual art, and film. King Carla will be sharing passages from her first novel, no crown, no title: a mixtape of tho(ugh)ts. Local artists including, Michi Meko, Corey Davis, Dubelyoo, Sean Fahie, and Brandon Sadler will present some of their works. There will also be a screening for a new short film from Chilly-O, that was shot as a visual complement to no crown, no title. It's going down tonight, at Studio No. 7 on the westside. 8 p.m.

Bad guys have all the fun, even during the holidays. With that being said, 7 Stages is upping the villainous ante in the fifth year of their production for Krampus XMas. Joining Krampus this time around are "anti-santas" from around the world including La Bafan, a "a sexy witch who rips out your internal organs and replaces them with garbage," and the Yule Log, "a giant log that dances burlesque and poops presents." Yeah, coal never sounded more tempting. The 18 and up show kicks off tonight, and runs through Dec. 21. Buy tickets here.
