It’s time to be aware, it’s time to survive: INTERNATIONAL ZOMBIE AWARENESS DAY!

Bring your friends, bring your housemates and bring the random drunk guy you didn’t know lived with you and get yourself zombified. This is a costumed event so drag out your decayed boots and throw on some gore, you could win limited edition prizes robbed from the grave*!

Place: ANU Bar

The night features:
3 “Live” Bands
Buckets of DJs and Zombie Tracks
Dead Giveaways
Zombie Film Screenings

And a shambling good time!

This is our third event of the living dead, and we want to make it bigger than ever, so plan ahead and get your friends together to prepare your costumes. We want a horde bigger enough to make the news!

EVENT UPDATE 2!!! 6/06/08

We now have Burlesque Dancers and a new band, Charlie Greaser, to add to the mix.

Charlie Greaser is a psychobilly band that has joined our already filled to the brim list of entertainment for the night. So damn, is $10 the best price ever? Hell yeah!

Tell your friends and tell the person next to you to do the same because IZAD now comes in 3 different band flavours! Finalised line-up is:

Mz Ann Thropik, from Sydney, headlining along with two home grown acts!

Moh Van Wah, a popular rock group from here in Canberra,

Finally is the deputing performance of Frankenpop, a psychobilly horror rock band.

So bring everyone you could possibly bring and share one of the best nights out this year!

One question: What’s the website URL?

I’ll try and rouse up my friends to come. I wanted to do this last year but apathy prevailed and I couldn’t go on my own 🙁

“Dead Giveaways”, heheh, nice one.

Anyone going dressed as a zombie sheep this year (Black Sheep)?

Too many Shauns of the Dead spoil the broth.
