Rock and Shock 2014- October 17, 18 and 19 - Worcester DCU Center and Palladium
So the Halloween Season is upon us (even though the Christmas trees seem to be up at the stores already) and one of the highlights for many of us is in Central MA is Rock and Shock! Celebrating their 11th year of mayhem, Rock and Shock is a freaktastic collection of Horror Stars, Rock Stars, Vendors, Horror Writers and more. Every year I am blown away by how incredibly nice these horror icons are and how they just keep smiling after being asked the same fanboy questions (yes from me ) for the 1000th time.
Yours truly getting stapled by Laurence R Harvey, star of The Human Centipede 2 and 3, and one hell-of-a nice guy.
Here is a breakdown of some of the many people I am excited to meet at this year's Rock and Shock!
I'm a huge fan of Brad Dourif's work in Dune, LORs and Deadwood (AKA the best show ever to get canceled)
Cliff!!! Most of you know Ratzenberger from his time on the bar stool in Cheers, but those of us "in the know" love his work in House 2 and Motel Hell!
Rowdy Roddy! You know him from the WWE (F) and WCW. I'm a huge 80s/90s Wrestling fan but his turn in the Sci Fi classic THEY LIVE as well as his role as "Da Maniac" in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are my favs.
Nivek Ogre- Skinny Puppy kicks a$$ and Repo! The Genetic Opera is one of my favorites.Fiona was great in Deadwood, True Blood, Curse of Chucky! and in Bored to Death (2nd best tv show to get canceled) Tara Reid from Sharknado had to cancel so she is now my #1 Horror Crush at Rock and Shock (lucky her...security!!)
That's just a sampling of who will be there along with Sid Haig and Bill Mosley (Devil's Rejects, Lords of Salem, Repo!, Tom Savini (the Master of SFX), our friends from TROMA (Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, The Toxic Avenger), GWAR!!!, King Diamond and a bunch more for every horror appetite.
For a full list of who will be there, tickets, bands and more info check out the official website at http://rockandshock.com/ . October 17,18 and 19 are going to be FANtastic (groan...) in Worcester!!
See ya there!
