Zombies have feelings too, you know.
Hey folks, brains have been on the mind. Zombies are underrated. There should be more drop-dead hilarious jokes written about them – like this one: What did the zombie say to his date? ‘I just love a woman with braaains!’ Don’t we all? I think it’s safe to say we all also love musicals about zombies. It gives them a chance to show their sensitive side through music and dance. Aren’t you lucky that one is coming to town?
It’s the ‘50s in America and we take a look into life at Enrico Fermi high school. There’s the classic boy meets girl, boy turns into zombie, but boy still wants to take girl to prom (oh, if I had a dollar...). Zombie Prom Musical makes its way to the Yarralumla Woolshed on Saturday October 6 and Sunday October 7. Letting you know early, so that you can be prepared for it, like you already should be for the zombie apocalypse. Tickets start at $25 + bf and can be bought online at Moshtix.
The thought of the zombie apocalypse is a tad stressful. Good thing LIVE@BAC is on Friday September 14 because it’s practically designed for chilling. In fact, why not come along every second Friday of the month as scheduled? Watch live and local artists share their talent, look at some art and kill a few zombies. It’s held at the Belconnen Arts Centre and costs $5 at the door. It runs from 5.30pm-7.30pm. Details on performers are put up each month on their website: http://www.belconnenartscentre.com.au/.
Zombies in roller-skates. Awesome, but no events of this kind are scheduled to my knowledge. However, if you’re keen to see a real game of Roller Derby, come see the Red Bellied Black Hearts vs. The Surly Griffins on Sunday September 8. They play at the Southern Cross Stadium in Tuggeranong. Doors open at 5pm for a 6pm start. Tickets are $11.75 + bf through Oztix.
Four awesome metal bands at a bar and, for once, your age doesn’t restrict you from being able to go (however, I can’t guarantee that you will be able to go if the apocalypse starts that night). The Amity Affliction, The Ghost Inside (US), Architects (UK) and Buried in Verona play on Tuesday October 2 at UC Refectory. Tickets are $51.30 + bf and can be purchased online or by calling Ticketek or Oztix.
You know who probably wouldn’t eat your brains if you saw him live? Xavier Rudd. This chilled-out acoustic wonder will be playing at Canberra Theatre Centre on Sunday September 9. In fact his music is so chill, I can imagine it to cause humans and zombies alike to hold hands in a circle, swaying to the music in a gesture of unity (then we pull the guns out and kill em’). General admission is $61.50 + bf and can be booked by calling (02) 6275 2700 or online at http://www.canberratheatrecentre.com.au
So that’s it from the all ages front for now. I wish you all luck in the upcoming apocalypse. If you happen to befriend one for some reason, I heard their favourite toys are dead-y bears.
