Walk like a zombie
If you’ve ever looked at the walkers on “The Walking Dead” and thought, “Pssshhh, I could do that,” this is your chance.
And it’s for a good cause.
Shuffle, stagger or crawl over to Boulder Dam Brewing Co., 453 Nevada Way in Boulder City, for the fourth annual zombie walk benefiting the Veterans Care Assistance Program.
Show up in your makeup, or, for a small donation, professional makeup artists will assist you with your look.
Music will be provided by The Legendary Boilermakers, Rachelle &the Rising and Ditch Diggers.
Admission is a $5 donation to the nonprofit group and its outreach, which includes a food bank, financial assistance and help with employment and housing searches.

More than ‘Godot’
If “Waiting for Godot” is all you know of playwright Samuel Beckett, another of his absurdist classics is waiting for you as A Public Fit Theatre Company presents a free reading of Beckett’s 1957 “Endgame.” Joe Kucan directs the cast of four at 7:15 p.m. Friday (doors open at 7 p.m.) in The Window, 150 Las Vegas Blvd. North, Suite 1401. After the reading, stick around to discuss the play and enjoy light refreshments provided by Rachel’s Kitchen. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/APublicFit.
The fourth “NF Hope Concert” at 1 p.m. Sunday is packed with Las Vegas entertainers who have become “superlocals” when it comes to community needs. Veronic, Clint Holmes, Jasmine Trias, Ben Stone, Kristen Hertzenberg, and cast members from “Million Dollar Quartet” and “Rock of Ages” again help “Jersey Boys” co-star Jeff Leibow raise money to help those, including his daughter, who battle neurofibromatosis.

Chicago death metallers Macabre pen quirky odes to serial killers such as Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gein that are nearly as depraved as their sources of inspiration with one notable exception — a winking sense of humor.
