“When hell is full, the dead shall drink at Old Town Pub” – tagline for “Pub of the Dead”
And they sure did. Walking into “Pub of the Dead II” at Pasadena’s Old Town Pub, I found myself struggling to recognize the people I knew. Most of the guests had smeared their faces in white, grey, green, and black paint, and artfully dabbed fake blood around their mouths. Scabby bits of rotting flesh decayed off their cheeks and chins. But after my eyes adjusted to the scene, I was able to figure out who the zombies really were. Over there I saw a cowboy hat, so that had to be Xavier from the Texas-based band Hotrod Hillbillies. And that must be Tony, guitarist and singer of The Rocketz, dressed in a tattered suit, looking like a corporate zombie who fell victim to the disease on the way home from the office.
