As I've said many times before, metal and horror are like peanut butter and chocolate--they go great together. No one knows that better than the folks behind Rock and Shock, an annual horror and heavy metal show that is one of a kind. This Friday through Sunday at the DCU Center and Palladium in Worcester, MA, horror and metal icons will be hanging out and celebrating together--and I'll be there too!
The lineup of guests and bands at this year's show is fantastic. On the guest front, you have George Romero, Tobin Bell, Doug Bradley, Adam Green, PJ Soles and many more. On the music side, Danzig, Superjoint, Hatebreed and more than a thirty other bands will be playing all weekend at the Palladium. And there will be a ton of vendors as well, including me!
I will be selling copies of all three Parted Veil books this weekend--Courting the King in Yellow, Lovecraft's Curse and Lovecraft's Pupil (which was released on March 31, 2015).
For those that buy all three books, I'll be giving away a print called "The Uguborth" that depicts a scene from Lovecraft's Curse. My friend and local Springfield artist Mike Valade created the print, and it's amazing.
I will also be hosting a panel on starting your own podcast Saturday at 1:15pm in the Creative Lair of the show, and I'll have some copies of my podcasting book Making Ear Candy on hand for anyone interested in picking one up.
So, if you're in the area this weekend, head down to the DCU Center and say hi! It's going to be an amazing show. For more info, you can go to rockandshock.com or check out the official Facebook page for the show.
