Zombies seem to be lurking around the city more than usual, and it’s not even Halloween! Well, if you can’t beat them (you literally can’t), then join them. Tonight, give the ol’ dead look a try at the NYC Zombie Prom, featuring a scary performance by GWAR. (Yes, the ’80s heavy-metal band that has a bloody mutant pig for a lead singer is still alive, sort of.) So find the most hideous dress or tuxedo you can get your hands on, splash some fake blood on your face, or have the pro makeup artists from Abracadabra do it for you at tonight’s party. Who knows? With the right amount of well-placed ooze, you just might end up winning zombie king or queen.
