Earlier this summer, when we revealed Waxwork Records' plan to release a vinyl edition of John Harrison's score to George Romero's classic Day of the Dead, we also hinted that there would be a special screening of the film to mark the occasion in the near future. Well, it's time to mark your calendars, because that day is now upon us!
In a joint venture between Waxwork Records, La-La Land Records and Creature Features, the Day of the Dead soundtrack launch party will take place at the historic Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, on September 30th at 7pm. The event will include a theatrical screening of Romero's 1985 zombie epic, with the director and composer in attendance... along with actor Sherman Howard, who played the film's zombie hero, “Bub.” All three will be present for a live discussion and Q&A moderated by film music writer Jeff Bond (who penned the liner notes for the vinyl release), followed by a soundtrack signing session. Copies of the album will be sold at the Egyptian, and you can get them signed on the spot.
Admission to the event is free (first come, first served), and you can get your tickets at La-La Land Records now.
