Its time to get your noir on again! The Madison Public Library will present Noir at the Bar: The Undead Edition, combining 1940s noir mystery with zombies and vampires. Think of all the great noir detectives who were also zombies or vampires. Well, we cant think of any either, but that shouldnt stop you from coming up with a zombie noir costume and coming out for a night of murder, mayhem and musicand zombies and vampireson the Blue Pants Brewery patio in Madison on Wednesday, October 21st at 7 p.m. Live music will alternate with dramatized stories of undead detectives from local mystery authors, Michael Guillebeau and Kathleen Cosgrove. Buy one of their books (theyre both still alive), and they will sign the book and buy you a beer. Wear an authentic undead noir costume to the speakeasy, and maybe win the prize for most undead noiresque costume. A portion of all beverage sales will go to the Madison Public Library.
Were going all-out to top our first Noir @ the Bar. Weve got some funny, dark, weird stuff from Mike and Kathleen, and were going to give audience members a chance to join in and change Kathleens story as it goes along. Well have music and prizes and undead noir trivia contests, and, of course, great beer from Blue Pants Brewery. Were also going to make this a costume party. Were giving out prizes for Best Undead Noir Guy, Best Undead Noir Doll, and Best Undead Noir Gang.
