Are you always the last one standing every night at conventions, possibly hyped up on Bawls or Red Bull? Don’t give in to sleepâ€”check out these two Wizard World Philly Comic Con‘s after parties this weekend at the Trocadero Theater. You can welcome summer to Philadelphia at the Zombie Beach Party and attend a monster showdown at Kaiju Big Battel.
The 2nd Annual Zombie Beach Party, Friday, June 11
Surely you’ve participated in (or at least heard about) Philly’s famous Zombie Crawls each Easter. Welcome summer with the Zombie Crawl folks at the Troc. The Zombie Beach Party will feature zombie make-up stations, a photo station and zombie music. Special featured surf-punk band The Slotcars will play a live set. Zombified guests may also win a costume contest.
The details: Tickets cost $7.00 in advance (at Trocadero box office) or $10.00 at the door. Doors open at 8 p.m. at 1003 Arch Street. Official Web info here.
Kaiju Big Battel, Saturday, June 12
This all-ages event showcases tournament-style epic monster showdowns. Mash up dramatic pro-wrestling and your favorite Japanese monster movies and this is what you get. Pick your favorite monster and cheer him/her/it on as it rampages an opponentâ€”but hopefully not the entirety of Philadelphia!
The details: Tickets cost $18.50 for adults and $11.00 for kids 14 and under. Purchase tickets at the Trocadero box office or via Tickemaster. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; show begins at 8:00. Official Web info here.
Philadelphia has a reputation to maintainâ€”we have the best zombies in the country. Be sure to show your zombie pride at the beach party and bring the whole family to Kaiju for epic monster battle fun!
