The Philly Zombie Prom is back from the grave to kick off another Halloween season. This year, legions of dolled-up undead will be shaking their rotting limbs to horror punk performances by Live Not on Evil and The Young Werewolves. DJs Kiltboy, Dave Ghoul and Mighty Mike Saga will also be spinning songs to keep the corpses shambling. Those who need to be converted to the zombie horde on-site can visit the PZC makeup stations. The transformation process will cost you $10, but don’t worry, it’s quite painless. Host Robert Drake will be crowning a new Zombie Prom King and Queen, so break out your most ghoulish gowns and terrifying tuxedos. This event has sold out the last two years, so only the brainless would fail to purchase tickets in advance.
Sat., Sept. 29, 8 p.m., $11-$16, The Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 215-922-6888, thetroc.com.
