Zombie Pub Crawl reveals '15 lineup: Girl Talk, Sum 41 ... Aaron Carter?

Zombie Pub Crawl 2014

Zombie Pub Crawl 2014

Zombie Pub Crawl — that annual parade of the drunk undead — just revealed the music lineup for its October 17 takeover of downtown Minneapolis. Among the headliners: pop music mash-up ace Girl Talk, dubstep luminary Seven Lions, early '00s pop-punk throwbacks Sum 41, and "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" hitmaker ... Soulja Boy

As for the ironic/nostalgic portion of the bill, you've got Jenny of Ace of Base. No, not the entire, still-active AoB crew, just former lead singer Jenny Berggren, who's being billed by her first name. (There's some drama and confusion surrounding her exit from the sugary '90 Swedish group.) The party will continue with Aaron Carter, the younger brother to Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and the blonde highlights behind 2001 hit "That's How I Beat Shaq." He's somehow just 27; he was last seen drinking at the CC Club

Local artists include sex-pop provocateur Tickle Torture, stompin' bar band the 4onthefloor, apropos gore-metal vets Impaler, and others. The brains behind the braaaaains promise more acts to be announced soon. Here's the lineup so far: 

  • Girl Talk 

  • Seven Lions 

  • Sum 41 

  • Soulja Boy

  • Aaron Carter 

  • Jenny of Ace of Base 

  • Mickey Avalon 

  • Outasight 

  • the 4onthefloor 

  • Tickle Torture

  • Aryay 

  • Wes Walker 

  • Dookie 

  • Dumpster Juice 

  • Impaler 

  • Witchden 

  • Mastiff 

Tickets ($16.66 - $100) are on sale now. As always, the World Brain Eating Championship will go down amid the rivers of fake blood and real booze. Now in its 11th year, ZPC has shifted locations in the past, but it's staying put in 2015 at various downtown hubs. No word on whether drunk zombie Santa plans on going hard again after breaking into a St. Paul home last year. He made our state proud by making national headlines.
