On December 4, the BOOGERS will serve up their third batch of punk rock for kids when EXTRACTUM VICTORIS hits the streets. It's no secret that the BOOGERS are well-respected here at Rock Father HQ (check reviews of their first two albums here and here), so when word came in today that the band has a new video, you can bet that I was excited to share it. Below the break you can check out "Pandas Are Dangerous," a song with an important message for the whole family.

For the better part of the past decade, horror fans in and around the Chicago area have been attending the annual 24-hour film festival known as THE MASSACRE each and every October. With the spooky Fall season close at hand (my favorite season of all), The Massacre will return once more, moving to a larger location - The Portage Theater (4050 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60641) on October 20th. Presented by Movieside, as always, The Massacre (Get tixRSVP on Facebook) will boast round-the-clock feature films, vintage trailers, vendors, special guests, a costume contest, zombie make-up station, a charity auction for Vital Bridges, and more.  Having attended several of these myself, I heartily recommend checking it out.  Full details below...
