Night of the Living Dead – the original zombie movie! - with a live & original soundtrack performed by the VOC Silent Film Harmonic



Night of the Living Dead – the original zombie movie! - with a live & original soundtrack performed by the VOC Silent Film Harmonic

Saturday, June 21st at Kitchener City Hall.

Free!  Starts at midnight!!  Outdoors!!!  Zombies!!!!

They keep coming back in a bloodthirsty lust for HUMAN FLESH!  Pits the dead against the living in a struggle for survival!

THIS is the zombie flick that started it all.  This classic will be presented as a silent film - subtitled and with a live & eclectic mix of funk, jazz, blues, and epic space rock by the VOC!

Dress up as a zombie, bring your blankets, chairs, and a picnic/midnight snack of human flesh!

The VOC is rightly chuffed to be part of the Summer Lights festival – a fabulous-a-rama of great events in downtown Kitchener & uptown Waterloo, starting at 9pm on the longest day of the year.
We will be playing on the Dehors stage of the Civic Polis hub of the festival (if you’re facing City Hall from King St., we’ll be in the back left corner) and the movie will be projected on the front of the building.  That’s right – 900ft zombies! (In case of bad weather, we will be in the Kitchener City Hall Rotunda & there’ll only be 450ft zombies.)

For info: www.summerlightsfestival.com

Warning: the movie is gory, gruesome, ghastly, grim, and in 1968 scared Roger Ebert and a lot of adults & little kids.  There is some brief nudity, too.

VOC personnel:
David Hunsberger – clarinet, percussion
Jeff Cowell – drums
Michael Mucci – guitar
Neil Ballantyne – keyboard
Ted Harms - bass
