So we’re going straight from our Zombie ball to our 2nd annual Halloween Costume Party! Last year we had a massive audience and plenty of great costumes, along with great musical acts, and this year we intend to do the same, but on an even bigger scale. We’re stepping it up with even bigger acts this time around, goodie bags, sampler cds, a costume contest for a $30 gift card, and more! We’ve got a big roster of artists for this special occasion and we might have a few more to add as well.
So far we’ve got (In no particular order):
Daniel Solis and Skyler Wilson
The Epic Weatherman
A Bad Night For A Hero
Oh Captain, My Captain
The Story Thief
I’ll keep you posted with updates, but this is definitely a show you won’t want to miss!
In case you missed our Zombie Ball last week, this is the sampler we were giving out for free at the show, featuring local artists from the Springs. You can download it here. If you dig any of the songs, please check out the artists who provided the tracks and let them know what you think.
This Saturday is our first Zombie Ball. It’s a semi-formal event, but fancypants aside, it’ll be our usual good time. We’ve got a great lineup and The Coffee Exchange as always provides some of the best food and drink downtown! It’s a free all ages show and it starts at 5:30 PM so you should be there. If you’d like to RSVP on facebook just follow this nifty link here.
Comic Art Fest 2012 was a big success! We met alot of great artists and I had the chance to interview most of them. There were some big names like Charly LaGreca, Langdon Foss, and Jonathan Hill, just to name a few and I look forward to sharing the interviews with everyone. I’ll also be working on a gallery here so you can see all the pics we’ve got.
I also plan to update the “Redheaded Zombie page” with galleries from the show, artwork, event updates and more! So stay tuned…

The Brainless Horde will be working with Local.FM to give you guys an all around better music experience. With a vast and constantly growing library, Local.FM is making sure that talented local artists, new and old, are heard by the masses.
And at the same time the Brainless Horde gives you a closer look at these indie creators. The Springs is full of them and we’re helping you get to know them, through video, live performance and hosting the Redheaded Zombie Show.
Together with Local.FM, we’re giving voice to Colorado’s creative community. Our goal is to broaden your minds so you can appreciate the talent that pervades this entire city. We’re giving you a real choice in what you want to see and hear. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to see a national act when you can hear wonderful music in your own backyard from artists who are just as talented. Having a good time in Colorado Springs only requires that you open your eyes and ears a bit wider.
That being said, if you’re an artist, a musician, an author, or a poet, come to us…
