Theatre Bizarre in Detroit

My first day back in Detroit I decided to check out this strange and unique part of the city's recent art movement.
 "Since the turn of the century, Theatre Bizarre has layered darkness on top of darkness.  In the shadow of the now dormant Michigan State Fairgrounds it stands in a largely abandoned neighborhood – surrounded by dozens of homes left vacant and decaying on the northernmost edge of Detroit.  Built by an army of volunteers and emerging for only one incomparable masquerade each year, Theatre Bizarre has become the city’s most famous and infamous underground party
Shut down by the city of Detroit in 2010, Theatre Bizarre lives on."
From the Theatre Bizarre website.  More info and photos available here.
