I attended this show and covered it for my old zine, SHOCK-A-LAMA-DING-DONG. Brought a date but she ditched me for a zombie who had a jacket just like Michael Jackson's from THRILLER (bitch). It worked out okay 'cause I got really stoned during THE GRIM REAPER and chatted up the post-menopausal broad making the popcorn in the concession stand. Next thing I knew we were drinking Fuzzy Navels and I lost my virginity during THE ASTRO ZOMBIES. Thanks, Ted V. Mikels!
