Is it a coincidence that the Z-Show 2 follows the season finale of AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead? This year they’re opening the gallery to multiple artists in a variety of mediums to feature nearly 50 pieces of zombified art from local and regional artists. Accompanying the art will be a slew of talented musical and dance acts to get even the stiffest of zombie bodies moving. Due to the graphic nature of the art and performances, this show is not recommended for young children. The show will be on display at the Pheonix Café in Hazel Park. Doors open at 8 p.m. There is a $5 entry fee.
