Hurrah is a monthly event filled with awesomeness and with Plastic Little it’s going to be INSANE! Luckily they did not go with “Gathering/Flash Mob” as their event type. We don’t want no baton wielding teens and/or misinformed po-po trying to stop this!
For all of you who do not know me personally, I love zombies. For many years I’ve been obsessed (and I would like to think it was before zombies made their way up the “favorite monster” ladder). I have such a strong zombie infatuation that I will dress up like a zombie for as many events in Philly as possible. That being said, here is a trailer for A.D.
This is fucking fantastic. Seriously. I’ve watched this trailer multiple times and it’s just perfect. Animated zombies is something that isn’t big in the entertainment industry and, when it is, it’s usually goofy and not scary at all (i.e. Scooby Doo, Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, etc.)
But this is different. I’m actually quite scared of the zombie in the trailer. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that he’s missing a jaw or dragging a corpse but, either way, he’s terrifying!
A.D. is written by Haylar Garcia and the trailer was directed by Ben Hibbon (CodeHunters) and produced by Bernie Goldmann (300). More information about the movie and an interview with it’s creators can be found here!
Both bands are folk/bluegrass rock and put on a great live show. Show starts at 8PM and tickets are $15.
On another note: how awesome is that poster?! It was created by Snakes Will Eat You. If you’re around Philly you’ve probably seen some of their stuff before; they’ve done artwork for Ben Arnold, Hezekiah Jones, Sisters 3, and TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb as well.
If you know me you know I collect Philly band posters. If I really like a poster I take it once the show date passes. If I saw this one hanging I’d take it in a heartbeat.
As most of you Philadelphia beer snobs know, Philly Craft Beer Festival is this weekend at The Naval Yard. This event has been sold out for weeks but, thanks to my very generous co-worker, I will be attending the afternoon session with Diana over at Philly Lush. So if you’re there please stop and say HAI!
In the meantime take a gander at the pictures Erica and I grabbed at last year’s PCBF for the ExBEERiment blog:
This year I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces from my local favorites Lancaster Brewing Co. and Yards Brewing Co. and I’m definitely asking Brew Dog questions about their 41% “Sink The Bismarck” beer. Huh? Say what? You didn’t hear about the strongest beer in the world?
If you want more information about the Philly Craft Beer Festival check out their official website here. They provide a list of participating breweries so, if you’re like me, you’ll know what to hit up and what to skip past.
See you all Saturday AND DON’T FORGET YOUR PRETZEL NECKLACES!
I’m hock up to my eyeballs in work today so I only have time for a quick thought:
I was completely infatuated with The Teeth. Listening to them on my fellow employee’s ITunes is the only way I’ll be able to hear them now. RIP The Teeth!
Now say hello to Purples.
I hope you live up to my expectations. Said expectations tend to be ridiculously high.
I’m sure you’ll be able to appease me though. So far so good.
Jesus isn’t the only one rising from the dead on Sunday!
Philly Zombie Crawl will host their annual Zombie Pub Crawl up South Street. For most of us this has become a tradition; a tradition better than eating dinner with Uncle Lou farting in the seat next to you, having children screaming around the house, and experiencing the family argument about why Aunt Tracy has had 3 failed marriages and wants to wear white at her 4th wedding. Can you tell the behavior of South Philly families has forever scarred me?
ANYWAY, The zombie crawl starts at 6:00pm with pregaming and zombifying at Tattooed Moms (makeup costs $10.00 and is definitely worth it. They know how to make one hell of a zombie face!) The crawl officially kicks off at 7:45pm where zombies will gather outside Mom’s for the traditional “around the block and down the alley” walk. Then the zombies will disperse with one of four zombie packs: Blood pack, Gore pack, Guts pack, Brain pack. Packs are a new idea this year…due to overcrowded bars last year. Being in a pack should allow better drink accomation and service all night long!
The night ends with a Zombie dance party at Fluid nightclub. No cover till midnight.
Check out more details at the Philly Zombie Crawl website.
Here’s a few tips for all Zombie Crawl virgins:
-People are really creative with their costumes…start working on yours now!
-In need of supplies? Halloween Masquerade is my place of choice but they can get kind of pricey. Last year they had a great deal: if you bought zombie related supplies from there they gave you a discount. I didn’t see that mentioned on the website for this year but it wouldn’t hurt to try! Another good place is Party City on Oregon Ave.
-Take a picture with Zombie Jesus…he’s the leader of this whole thing!
-Make sure to share your pictures on the Zombie Crawl website!
