Michael Jackson in a Hyperbaric… Too Soon?

Zombified Amy Winehouse with a moldy weave. Members of Insane Clown Posse during a post-hurricane Faygo shortage. A leather-vest-wearing Pat Boone, from his 1997 cover album, In a Metal Mood.

These are just a few terrifying takes on rock and roll icons. If you plan on snaking tonight’s $5,000 grand prize at your favorite haunt, Seminole Paradise Hard Rock — then you had better concoct something truly demonic. The contest is called Scary Rock Star, and this major rager is dishing out $25,000 in cash and gifts. Winners will channel everyone from beloved Grammy stars to rock-bottom wash-outs, all in the name of Halloween.

Hopefully you didn’t spend last year dutifully constructing a GWAR ensemble only to snooze through the enrollment deadline (registration ended on October 26.) If you did, so what? Go heckle like Amy Winehouse at a Bono concert. Seminole Paradise is located at One Paradise Way in Hollywood. Call 954-583-3250, or visit seminoleparadise.com/scaryrockstars.
