Rock & Shock This Weekend

If you’re going to be in the area of Worcester, Pa., then you might want to check out the annual music and horror convention Rock & Shock.

“We are not like other boring horror conventions,” claims their website. “We were the first to blend horror conventions with music. So while fans can meet their favorite horror film stars, directors, writers and bands during the day — at night we have well-known national bands performing each night next door at The Palladium…That’s why this event is called Rock & Shock.”

Guests this year include Shawnee Smith (Saw I, II & III), Tony Todd (Candyman), and several members of Rob Zombie’s Halloween cast, among others. For more information, visit

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
