J. Cannibal's Feast of Flesh IX on 10/3!



Black Ocean Presents
J. CANNIBAL’S FEAST OF FLESH IX
featuring RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
plus special guests BLACK CAT BURLESQUE
with live music by WALTER SICKERT & THE ARMY OF BROKEN TOYS
Saturday, October 3rd / Midnight / $10

Real-life undertaker and long time zombie fanatic J. Cannibal—dubbed the King of Horror Burlesque—presents a gruesome banquet of midnight mayhem!

This frightful night of fun kicks off with Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys: this super group of Boston underground audio and performance artists combines a classic Goth aesthetic with child-like enthusiasm to weave haunting songs of violence and despair. Think Edward Gorey brought to life and plugged in through a labyrinth of circuits and sound! Following their set will be a bevy of grotesque burlesque courtesy of the infamous horror troupe, Black Cat Burlesque. Dedicated to putting the BUMP back into the night, Black Cat Burlesque have been raising pulses, the dead and a whole lot of hell since 2003. As the bad seeds of Boston Burlesque, this scream team mines the depths of their twisted psyches—blending striptease thrills and spookshow chills to push the boundaries of the art form and explore the dark, cobwebbed corners of neo-cabaret.

For the night’s feature, Mr. Cannibal has hand-picked one the zombie film that gave raise to the classic notion of brain-eating ghouls: RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. Part social commentary, part non-stop action-packed gore fest—this movie has a little something for everyone from the seasoned zombie fanatic to the undead novice. Come prepared to laugh and scream!

Free gory goodie bags will be handed out to all, and J. Cannibal will award a number of prizes for the best zombie costumes from New England Comics, Regeneration Tattoo and Horror Business. If all this ghoulish glory has whet your appetite for freaky films, Boston-area residents can also trek down to their local branch of Hollywood Express and browse J. Cannibal’s very own “picks” section, where they can check out some of his favorite horror movies of all time.

Brought to you by the creative minds of Black Ocean, this will be a show of insanity from beyond the grave that you don’t want to miss! With over 400 fiends showing up to each Feast of Flesh over the past few years, go ahead and get your tickets now at coolidge.org!

A thick slab of praise for J. Cannibal and his Feast of Flesh:

J. Cannibal, the ‘King of Horror Burlesque.’ —Boston’s Weekly Dig

J. Cannibal’s Feast of Flesh, led by real-life undertaker and zombie lover J. Cannibal, is a celebration of all things terrifying. —The Improper Bostonian

Think Rocky Horror Picture Show with less androgyny and more anthropophagy. —The Onion

[J.Cannibal] is the sort of guy people brag about knowing. After all, he sounds like an exotic, epic character: poet, undertaker, horror-burlesque king, small-press publisher, show promoter, fake-blood engineer. —The Boston Phoenix
