Zombie Samba & the Devil’s Mambo

October 31, 2009 - September 21, 2014


Friends and colleagues, ghouls and goblins,

Corbett vs. Dempsey will host a day-long Halloween listening party on Saturday, October 31st.  Come in anytime from 11 to 4 and hear such Hallow’s Eve classics as Captain Beefheart’s “Making Love to a Vampire with a Monkey on My Knee,” Cheap Trick’s “Oh Candy,” Kevin Coyne’s “Mummy,” King Pleasure’s “Don’t Get Scared,” and the Lafayette Afro Rock Band’s “Dr. Beezer ‘Soul Frankenstein’.”  Painstakingly chosen by Corbett and Dempsey, the playlist includes more black and orange hits by Henry Threadgill, Suicide, Gillian Welch, George Jones, Sun Ra, Tampa Red, Smog, the Bar-Kays, and the Flying Burrito Brothers, among many others.

While you’re digging the grave…I mean, tunes…make sure to check out Gina Litherland’s exhibition The Murmur of Pearls, which features 15 glorious new paintings, as well as the absolutely incredible Bart Johnson and Our Town, a selection of his quite haunted ink drawings.

Festivities begin at 11AM.  No costumes, please!
