“Ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when September ends” (Green Day)…  with that Autumn walks in and i don’t mean my daughter Autumn, shes still in Nashville.

I mean .. the Autumn that brings us falling leaves and cooler evenings. The Autumn that smells of pumpkin spice and hot coffee mornings and the Autumn that leads us into the scariest night of the year Halloween.

For the past 5 weeks ive been hanging out every Thursday night with a mob of dancing zombies as they practice for “Thrill the World Eugene” which happens in about 5 weeks.

Each year on a given day the mob of dancing zombies meet at a chosen area  in Eugene  and perform simultaneously to Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller” with other dancing zombie mobs in cities all around the globe, hoping to set a new world record of “Thriller”  dancing zombies.

In a few weeks i will have more to this story and the time and day for the dancing zombie take over.

Lets get to the weekend.

Friday and Saturday night at 8pm,  WOW HALL its Floater, opening for them is Groovey Wallpaper on Friday and Hyding Jekyll on Saturday. I heard this is going to be a show you dont want to miss.
