SCC and other Spartanburg college students are welcomed back to school with a Zombie Dance Party.
Zombies are expected to invade downtown Spartanburg later this month as the city’s College Town consortium welcomes students from the city’s seven colleges.
The annual College Fest celebration will feature a “Scare on Morgan Square Zombie Dance Party” and music from mashup and remix artist The Melker Project, according to officials.
Students from each of the consortium schools — Converse College, Sherman College of Chiropractic, Spartanburg Methodist College, Spartanburg Community College, the University of South Carolina Upstate, Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine and Wofford College — are invited to attend.
In addition to music, there will be free food and drink with a college ID and a contest for best costume, according to a release. Beer will also be available with a valid ID.
The 12th annual program, which targets Spartanburg’s 15,300 college students, will take place from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13.
The Melker Project, also known as Johnny Cashin’ Out, Skeetwood Mac, Booty Huxtable, Skeevie Tricks, A$AP Scotty and Ricky Exit-Row-Zay, is the brainchild of veteran DJ Scott Melker.
One of Melker’s best known works is a video remix of presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s infamous “binder full of women” debate gaffe.
