Dead Sara Bring Heat to Chilly GRD Halloween Hellraiser [Photos]
Taken out of their warm Los Angeles, Calif. environment and withstanding the harsh Michigan cold, Dead Sara rocked Ah-Nab-Awen Park in downtown Grand Rapids to the core during Saturday night’s (October 27) GRD Halloween Hellraiser, presented by Founders Brewing Co. Take a look at our photo gallery from the show and 5K Zombie Dash.
Over 1,100 runners and 400 zombies took to the apocalyptic streets of downtown GR. The runners had to dodge the zombie horde while competing for the best times. There were quite the number of impressive costumes on display. Aside from expected characters of the hit TV series The Walking Dead, there were cowboys, bloody surgeons and more creepy participants.
Grand Rapids band Fine Fine Titans kicked off the Halloween Hellraiser at full throttle from the get go. The group came out as the cast from the cult classic Mel Brooks film Spaceballs. Bangups let the crowd on board their rock and roll train and schooled them on two-piece rock. Another product of Grand Rapids, Bangups became friends with Dead Sara at this year’s Vans Warped Tour.
Speaking of Dead Sara, not even Mother Nature could prevent the band from putting on a hell (pun intended) of a show. They went through a blistering 50-minute set and frontwoman Emily Armstrong wasn’t shy leaving the stage to get close to the fans. Guitarist Siouxsie Medley avoided a potential disaster when she slipped on the stage but recovered in time to turn it into a sweet looking guitar pose.
