Zombie Ball & Kaukauna Quarantine are over….

Whew…. that was a busy few days. We had a pretty good turn out for the Zombie Ball considering it was a Thursday night and it was the first one ever. The coolest part was that John Hall & Red Shamrock got an awesome write up in the Daily Iowan. That was great.

Not to mention the cool DJs and Raw Mojo were awesome as well.

Then, two days later the Kaukauna Quarantine happend in…Kaukauna. While it wasn’t as big as we would’ve liked… we did raise $130 and got about $60 in item donations. So, not too bad. Next year will be bigger and better. Some friends of mine from Japan came in that night and were able to participate as well. You can see the blog of their experiences (in Japanese) here.


One week away from the Iowa City Zombie Masquerade Ball

I can not wait for this.   While am not the person in charge, I know the people who are and I have tried to help out as much as I can.    If you don’t really know anything about the ball, you can check out their Face Book event page.  The ball is a really cool, alcohol free fundraiser for Red Shamrock Foundation after cancer care.

Not only do you get to dance you bottom off, you get to enjoy a TON of cool music.

We have two DJs: DJ Chaircrusher and DJ Miche! One of them uses real vinyl!   (No, those are NOT big, black CDs).

Then we have Raw Mojo & Insectoid, too.   2 DJs and 2 bands for $20….. more than worth it.  All money goes to the  Red Shamrock Foundation

If that wasn’t cool enough, there is a silent auction where you can bid on some really cool jewelry from Glassando, keen t-shirts and stickers from KingZombie.com, Zombie-Themed games from Steve Jackson Games, a 4-day pass to GenCon, AUTOGRAPHED CD from Jonathan Coulton that includes Re: Your Brains…. just to name a few of the cool things.

So if you haven’t got tickets… it’s not too late.

When: Oct. 22nd, Thursday, 2011

Where: Old Brick, Downtown Iowa City

Why: To have a lot of fun & benefit Red Shamrock Foundation.
