Bring the Noise: Night of the Living Dead

Featuring new live music by The Paranoyds.

For the latest edition of our Bring the Noise program – for which musicians create a new score for a classic film, then perform it live at a screening – we salute the 50th anniversary of scare-auteur George Romero’s zombie revelation, Night of the Living Dead with a new score by Los Angeles’ own psych-punk foursome, the Paranoyds. The band’s brash, noisy and witty catalog – “Rat Boy” alone is a glittering, sweaty highlight – makes them such a perfect marriage of music and movie that we only thank our lucky whomever that no one else thought of it first. Come out and join us for this raucous, noisome and enticing consummation of score and carnage.

Followed by a reception, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Each attendee will receive a limited edition poster by artist Matt Owen – ONLY available the night of the event.

1968, 96 minutes, B/W | Written by John A. Russo and George Romero; directed by George Romero; with Duane Jones, Judith O’Dea, Marilyn Eastman, Karl Hardman, Judith Ridley, Keith Wayne
