Monsterpalooza Has Such Sights To Show You May 8-10 In Pasadena!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  No, not Christmas……it’s almost Monsterpalooza time!  Mark your calendars and free up any plans you might have had May 8-10, because Monsterpalooza is indeed coming back to Pasadena, CA for another round of frightful fun.  The thing I love about this convention compared to others, is that it mixes together your favorite horror celebrities AND the amazing work of make-up and effects artists.  77274402_2856075537744290_2805292489638936576_o

The title of my post may have tipped you off a little to one of the celebrities attending this year, but to clarify even more – the one and only Clive Barker will be there!  If that’s not enough – how about a Scream reunion with Neve Campbell, Matthew Lillard, and Jamie Kennedy??  Two guests that I’m really looking forward to that I’ve never seen at a convention are John Carroll Lynch (American Horror Story, Fargo) and legendary guitarist John 5 (Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson).  FYI – there will be a FREE afterparty Saturday night (with a wristband from the day) that will have a performance from John 5!

Aside from the celebrity guests, expect to have special panels announced soon, as well as some special screenings.  One thing that Monsterpalooza is doing differently this year that I think is pretty cool, is that they’re letting you pre-order your Photo Ops online beforehand.  Most of the bigger celebs will be participating, so go to the site HERE for more info as it’s added.  And get your tickets for Monsterpalooza HERE because there is a good chance that tickets will sell out online!

John 5 And The Creatures Unleash ‘I Am John 5’ Music Video……With Butch Patrick!

Have you ever wanted to watch Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster) control a giant mechanical version of legendary guitarist John 5 into destroying Hollywood, all in a glorious blend of 2D and 3D animation???  Well, it’s your lucky day!  Below is the new music video for I Am John 5″ – the second single off of John 5 and The Creature’s new album.

Well that was fun.  You know what else is fun?  John 5 and The Creatures have embarked on a new tour, and will have special guests on some stops.  Luckily for me, I’ll be at the show at The Whiskey in Hollywood on April 6th…..where Corey Taylor, Shavo Odadjian, and Michael Anthony will be just a few of the special guests joining John onstage.  Check out more info on the tour HERE and here’s hoping Butch Patrick pops up at some point!
