Second Annual Night of the Dead

a psychedelic encore for your costume!


Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 7:00pm



Majestic Theatre


115 King Street


Madison, WI




Madison, WI ? 10/3/08: Local jam bands Baghdad Scuba Review, The Grasshoppers, and Bu.R.P! have been confirmed to appear at The Majestic Theatre on Saturday, November 1st at the 2nd Annual Night of the Dead. The event falls on the Mexican holiday The Day of the Dead. Tickets are $10 prior to the show, $12 Day of show and are available through all Majestic Theater ticket outlets and at the Majestic Theater's website (www.majestic theater.com. Curtain or Show starts at 8pm. Falling on the week of Halloween, the event will be an encore for costumes with a Grateful Dead musical theme.

All three of the bands have recently played to packed crowds at Madison's finest rock club, the High Noon Saloon. Last year, Baghdad Scuba Review and Run Side Down (now Bu.R.P!), played to a packed crowd at the first Night of The Dead, held at the Barrymore Theatre. This year we are excited to add the psychedelic jammers, The Grasshoppers to the show.

Baghdad Scuba Review is one of Madison's favorite bands. A group of highly politically driven musicians, the band's left wing message speaks for change in a city that is very receptive to it. They are known far and wide for their excellent Grateful Dead covers and vocally driven originals that all the hippies can get down to. They are a sextet (Hand Percussion, Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass, Keys, and Drum Set), and this band throws down with their tight grooves and clean tones.

The Grasshoppers are no stranger to the Madison Music Scene. They have recently been melting faces at clubs all over Madison including the High Noon Saloon, Alchemy, and Harvest Fest but their music is not limited to the Madison area as they play at clubs throughout the Midwest with their brand of psychedelic prophecy.

Bu.R.P! is a fusion/funk trio formed after the end of Madison's Run Side Down, who co-headlined the show last year at the Barrymore Theater. Heavy funk and dance beats accompanied by screaming melodies has made this band a regular in the Madison Jam scene. This year's Night of the Dead, however, will be a bittersweet finale for the trio, as drummer Jon Reed will be moving on to pursue new endeavors.
