Today’s forecast calls for frightful conditions. A swarm of flesh-eating undead is expected to flood the city, terrorizing innocent passersby in search of brains and Bloody Marys. Corpses draw inspiration from medieval times, when the Black Death was the disease du jour.

Friday, 8 p.m., 285 Kent, 285 Kent Ave.,
