The cottage industry of Shrek has spawned “Shrek: The Rave,” which is slated for Friday December 8 at The Virginia Street Brewhouse. The first Shrek rave took place in Los Angeles in March 2022. The event was a huge success in Hollywood, followed by a popular edition in New York. The event, put together by Jordan Craig, a Los Angeles-based artist, content creator and screenwriter known as Ka5sh, has gone national.
Attendees adorn in face paint and some in costume in character as Lord Farquad or Princess Fiona dance to such familiar tunes as Smashmouth’s “All Star,” the Proclaimers “I’m on My Way” and Rufus Wainwright’s version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” And then there’s one of the songs written for “Shrek 2,” the infectious “Accidentally in Love,” which was written and recorded by Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz.
