September 17, 2011 by  

Greetings Boils and Ghouls!

We’re gearing up for the main crawl event this SUNDAY October 16th! Pabst Blue Ribbon will be hosting an open PBR bar at the afterparty and a photo booth starting at 8:30pm and we have a new sponsor with an awesome product we’ll be promoting – ZOMBIEBOOTH! It’s an awesome mobile app that turns anyone into a 3D Zombie! We have a funny powerpoint presentation about the Walking Dead and we’ll also be doing the late night HOT ZOMBIE CONTEST again!

A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to help our brother Spliff, the father of DisGraCeLand Hook Squad – you can also donate here!

Download the ZombieBooth App as we will be doing some afterparty ticket giveaways to the first 10 people to post pics at the event on the ZOMBIEBOOTH Facebook Page!

It’s all going to kick off at the Beauty Bar NYC by Union Square (231 E 14th St in Manhattan btwn 2nd and 3rd Ave). from 4pm-6pm with the zombie meet up and makeup. Our zombie makeup technicians will be charging a small fee to create zombies or you can bring out your dead! It’s 21 to drink zombie drink specials or enter the bar, but all ages are welcome to join us for the crawl event at 6pm!

At 6pm the madness begins as we crawl through the East Village. This year we’re honored to have Angelo Moore aka Dr. MaddVibe (also frontman of the legendary Fishbone) as a part of the event! We will be shooting the crawl as part of a new Dr. MaddVibe music video and Dr. MaddVibe will also be performing at the official after party!

The second NYC zombie massacre started at 6pm at:
BAR 13 – 35 East 13th St (@ University Place)

At 8:00pm, zombies gathered outside Bar 13 and despite all the rain crawled to the next stop:

The zombie crew lurched across town to the East Village to the Pioneer Theater where the Backseat Film Festival hosted horror films and shorts, including the NYC premiere of Punk Rock Holocaust 2 (9pm) and Stupid Teenagers Must Die (11pm).

Afterwards, the undead went over to the Double Down Saloon for some serious drinking action!
