THE ZOOPY MONSTERS return to the Sacramento Horror Film Festival October 12th!

 

"Part puppet show, part rock band and part burlesque, The Zoopy Show’s characters come adorned in Muppets-from-hell costumes, supplemented by their own troupe of go-go dancers called the Zoopy Girlz. Comprised of gigantic monster musicians born 8,000 years ago on the other end of the universe, Fartfire the Dragon, Dancing Piggy Boy and Slee-nard serve up electronic, dancy punk that occasionally breaks into lounge territory—music supposedly taught to them by a drug-addled, womanizing puppet named Zappato. Described by the band as “live Japanimation,” The Zoopy Show is as much a carnival sideshow as it is a live concert performance; it’s also the subject of an upcoming graphic novel called They Came to Earth." —MATT SULLIVAN (http://www.nashvillescene.com/nashville/our-critics-picks/Content?oid=1194897)
