Reverend Billy Calls for "Zombergs" to Descend Upon Halloween Parade

He's recruiting "dance team, float building and general zombergification" volunteers for his display in this year's Halloween Parade in the Village. Thematically, it fits. Our interviews with the candidate appear here and here; Only The Blog Knows Brooklyn reviews his recent Brooklyn Lyceum show.
