Break out the tubes of fake blood and other grotesque costume props for a night of brains, formal wear and more brainz. To celebrate its role all summer as a live set for the locally filmed zombie series Z Nation, the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture is hosting a zombie-themed, prom-inspired evening for adults. In addition to live music by local group Fun Ladies and sets from DJ Case, guests are entertained by local tarot reader Elissa Ball, and performances by contortionist Amy Brandle and members of the Vaude Villains burlesque troupe. A Royal Zombie Court is also appointed, because no prom would be complete without a few queens and kings of the night. Better hit the thrift stores fast to find the most horrifying formalwear you can (while beating the Halloween rush) and dust up on your “Thriller” dance moves.
