Bite into the Zombie Pub Crawl lineup

90s nostalgia and party favs amidst a swarm of local talent.

Here's something to lessen your end-of-summer blues: the Zombie Pub Crawl music lineup has been unearthed. 

This year's gathering of the undead will feature, unsurprisingly, a lot of party music to creep to. But there's also a hint of nostalgia mixed in.

Walkers who grew up in the 90s will appreciate headliners Third Eye Blind, who definitely stick out amongst a list dominated by rhymers, DJs, and funk and hip hop artists. Other big names include rapper Tech N9ne and the king of Auto-Tune, T-Pain. 

A swarm of local talent including Chance York, Neon Blaque, and Dwynell Roland will fill out the list.

Of course, ZPC 2017 will also hold the annual zombie costume contest, where the most impressive living-dead individual and horde will win VIZ (very important zombie) tickets for life. 

And there's a "Dragged to Hell" event this year, featuring some of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, separate stages for metal and tribute bands, karaoke, a zombie photobooth, and something called "The Porta Party" that we hope isn't what it sounds like.

The zombies will rise on Saturday, Oct. 14 in downtown Minneapolis. Tickets are $28 general admission or $80 for VIZ if you bite before September 29. Find more info on the ZPC website.
