Now There’s an Indiegogo Campaign to Crowdfund Danzig’s House for $666,666

0

Glenn Danzig’s infamous L.A. house is now on the real estate market with the dark one asking a cool $1.2 million for the run-down, dilapidated house of horrors.

The original listing at Zillow.com is now showing the property as “off market” — which could mean anything ranging from someone swooped in with a buttload of cash (unlikely) to the real estate agent got tired of fielding phone calls and emails from Danzig fans and pranksters (way more likely) — but that hasn’t stopped a group of fans from launching an Indiegogo campaign to help rescue the house and save it from development, with the goal of preserving it as a shrine to Danzig forever.

Perks available to donors include postcards, t-shirts, posters, name-engraved plaques on the property and more, with the most tantalizing promise of all dropped into the pitch video: “we will bring back the pile of bricks.” The organizers do not plan to live in the house, but instead will curate a shrine/museum to Danzig, host the baddest Halloween parties of all time and offer it as a wedding venue:

Glenn Danzig, iconic frontman for The Misfits, Samhain and the band Danzig, is selling his house. Used as offices and storage after Satan’s Child moved out a while back, the Addams Family-looking 1907 craftsman home is now listed for sale on Zillow for 1.2 million dollars. Rather than restore it to its “glorious past” as the real estate listing suggests, let’s preserve this place as the gothic shrine that it is.

Like a punk rock Graceland, the inventor of fiendcore’s former home will serve as a museum of sorts, open to the public for Ghouls’ Night, Halloween parties, weddings held at the Witching Hour, séances filled with Skulls and Daisies, and anything else imaginable.

Be a part of making this into a Devil’s Plaything for fans, a real life Hollywood Babylon Not of This World, and a cool place where All Hell Breaks Loose. Join us in staking a claim in this Dominion or donate what you can to help canonize this hallowed ground as the American Nightmare it deserves to be.

We the buyers will not live on site. The plan is to leave the exterior intact, renovating the inside for curatorial displays and community use, and to hire a staff of minions and monsters to keep the crypt tight. It’ll be a scream! What in Green Hell are you waiting for?

It’s hard to imagine this campaign ends up being successful — the $666,666 sought is SO MUCH MONEY and still only half the asking price — but hey, you never know, right?
