Dammit Rob Zombie is creepy. The horror rocker and movie director is working on a new movie called 31 and if the film is at all the level of creepy that movie poster is, it’s sure to make you cringe. The poster features the image of a evil clown. Zombie told Rolling Stone his infatuation with creepy clowns started as a child when he had to hang out with some stranger dressed as Ronald McDonald. He says clowns are very entertaining and incredibly repulsive. The script for the new film is done and now they’re gonna scope out some locations, but Zombie is crowdfunding the movie with a goal of raising $2 million. You can get all kinds of perks by donating to the production of the film. Head over to Fanbacked.com and search out Zombies profile.
Volbeat are gearing up for a new album. In a recent interview drummer Jon Larsen laid out plans moving forward where he said when they’re done with festivals late August they’ll head back to the US and tour with Five Finger Death Punch for a few weeks and then it’s back to the UK for a tour in November. After all of that, a bit of a holiday and then work on a new album.
Weekend live music options
A whole bunch of happenings on the live shows front—up in Chicago concertgoers will get to check out Lollapalooza. That multi-day event is scheduled throughout the weekend. Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Ferrell started up the music festival over 20 years ago. This year’s lineup includes a bunch of non-rock bands like Eminem and Lorde. Wanna see a rock show? How about you instead get down to Pops in Sauget tonight were (hed) p.e. will be joined by Bound to Break and others. That show was supposed to feature Powerman 5000 but Pop’s website says they’re no longer on the event and tickets prices have been reduced. If you want to keep it local, then be sure to head downtown Springfield Friday and Saturday for the Downhome Music Beer and Art Festival. Did I mention there will be 4 stages with dozens of bands and over 100 different types of beer to choose from? See you there!
