The Living, Rocking, Sexy Dead

Given the typical work-to-sleep ratio in this culture, most of us are familiar with our inner zombie. Usually we attack it with coffee and yell at it when it spills the piping-hot weapon on our shirt when we’re trying to drag it out the door. It’s rare that we take the zombie out to play and even rarer that we surrender to it completely and let the zombie take us out for a night of undead kicks. The “Halfway to Halloween Zombie Prom” at the Monterey Club (2608 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale) will be a great opportunity to give this a try.

At this month’s installment of the Shimmy Shake Revue, presented as always by the sultry Morgan La Rue, the living will look like the dead (wear costumes!), but they won’t be nearly as stiff. Instead, zombie-looking boozers will be rocking out to ghoulish industrial bands Half Head, Twitch, D/Effektor, and Phoenix/Nebulin in between spookily seductive burlesque performances by La Rue, Ember Furie, Val Vampyre, and Angie Z. The party starts at 9 p.m., and it costs $10 to get in. Call 954-598-1887, or visit
Sat., May 7, 9 p.m., 2011
