Dead Men Do Tell Tales

Fright Night at The Last Bookstore
Courtesy Rosemary's Billygoat Fright Night at The Last Bookstore

Get freaky a week early at the Last Bookstore with "Dead Men Do Tell Tales," a quartet of Halloween-related entertainment. Listen to author/death expert Paul Koudounaris (The Empire of Death) present "Sex Ghosts of the Palermo Catacombs," which includes not only an explanation of the spirits' "strange and lusty post-mortem desires" but a slideshow as well. Watch puppets, vintage educational films, animation and medical fetishism collide in the films of The Art of Bleeding. While waiting for your appetite to come back, stay and listen to Rosemary's Billygoat, a horror/spoof metal band known for their lavish costumes and morbid props, and Clowns and Fetuses, a poetry-meets-sci-fi trio who will perform a selection of pieces related to the afterlife.
