Livejournal.com user "Mzkitten" posted on her blog recently: "I was wondering if anyone lives in the San Diego area who would like to go-go dance with an up-and-coming psycho-billy band...at the Zombie Lounge [Sept. 3]. The pay is $100 for a couple hours, and free drinks.... I was looking for spooky-type girls, not just the normal-type gal. It's my boyfriend's band, The Knucklebusters [who will be playing]."

Knucklebuster singer Ed Upchurch says, "Our new CD just came out, and the Zombie Lounge has been playing it in rotation. Most of the songs are about my girlfriends -- well, my ex-girlfriend, anyway. I noticed these women getting on the dance floor and getting into the music, and I thought, 'Man, that is hot.' This is perfect music for dancing women.... I was going to build some cages out of bamboo, but that wouldn't work on the tiny stage at the Zombie Lounge."

Mzkitten, in a cat outfit, hosted the show and danced around. She posted on her blog about an after-show party: "There was a little fight -- that was not fun." She wouldn't give details about the fight.

Upchurch says, "This is the first gig [with] go-go dancers. But there will be more. Our dancers will be at our September 30 gig at Blind Melons.... They will always have pony tails and school girl outfits."
