Make it a Halloween to remember with the fabulous Dreadnoughts, Fuzzcat, Undead Kennedys and the 30th Anniversary re-release party for THOR's classic 1978 smash "Keep The Dogs Away" on Scratch Records! Special prizes to those in attendance dressed as zombies!

FUZZCAT - Assembling like the five lions of Voltron, Fuzzcat unified into a tight music-making machine bringing thick beats and ass-shakin' rawk. Influences include Manu Chao, The Clash, Public Enemy, Fela Kuti and anyone else that brings a tear to the eye or a beer to the lips. You never know who will sit in or whose clothes may be shed. If you like shaking your ass and banging your head, come work it out with Fuzzcat.

The DREADNOUGHTS - Ball-busting Celt-punk from Vancouver's newest group of drunken misfits, with a shot of pirate-shanty, a shot of Irish melody and a triple-chaser of street punk. The result is a powerful live sound, with whirling fiddles, mandolins and accordions inviting you into a world of drink and debauchery. Imagine Rancid had their tour bus hijacked by a group of inebriated gypsies... and you're beginning to understand. Be sure to come out and catch these young up-and-comers who opened for The Real McKenzies!

THOR is an enduring icon of glam rock/metal and one of the true originators of rock theatre. His enviable career got off the ground with an appearance on the Merv Griffin Show and he's maintained a steady pace ever since, selling hundreds of thousands of records around the globe. Starting out in Vancouver, THOR first made waves in the bodybuilding world, becoming Mr. Canada and Mr. USA while using heavy music as an intensive training tool. He has become an actor and producer, turning out collectible cult classics like "Rock & Roll Nightmare", "Zombie Nightmare" and "Graveyard", starring in "The Intercessor", and appearing in "Murder At The Presidio" and "A Family Lost" to rave reviews. Stay tuned to Thor's adventures on YouTube and download free tracks at!

The UNDEAD KENNEDYS - Slipping the razor blades into this years Halloween candy, it's the Undead Kennedys, an all zombie all-star supergroup tribute to the songs of the Dead Kennedys. Comprised of undead alumni from the Town Pants, Dreadnoughts, Real McKenzies and Rio Bent, they'll be rocking out in full Zombie regalia, filling your loot bag with a coffin's worth of brain-eating punk rock excitement!

Zeus, for example, was a horndog. Like that time he came to Earth to seduce all those comely maidens while disguised as a white bull that smelled of flowers. It was really something. And that girl Io was such a fox - until Zeus turned her into a cow to thwart his suspicious wife, that is. That Zeus. What a prankster. Then we have Hercules slayi... more info
