We’re only a week away from the annual Rock and Shock convention, where horror and heavy metal go together like peanut butter and jelly with a fist to the mouth. Worcester, MA will play host on October 15-17 to a monster three days of horror con and metal concerts.
Headlining the meet-and-greet end of things are Danny Trejo and George Romero, as well as guests such as Adam Green, the man the recently pulled from theatres HATCHET II; Adrienne Barbeau; Pinhead himself, Doug Bradley; the girls of Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN; and badass David Hess. Charles Band will bring his Full Moon Road Show along for the ride on Saturday.
On the metal end of things, the highlight will be on Saturday night, when Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper join forces for a legendary night of horror rock. Look for Astro-Creeps, Dragulas, Cold Ethyls and Billion Dollar Babies in legions as these two acts collide in unholy matrimony. I’ve seen Cooper a few times, and he always puts on a good show that is just as much horror theatre as it is music. And any time GWAR is in town… all Hell is going to break loose.
Several ticket options are available for the show. I say go for the full weekend, and take in a hellacious three days of scares and frights.
And check out Rock and Shock on their website. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
