I’m in the throes of tour booking. Currently planning a spring trip that will be my longest ever–down the East Coast and through the Southeast, a week in Austin for SXSW, across to Los Angeles for a bit, up the West Coast, and back across the states. If anyone wants to help book a show or a house concert, please get in touch.

Sending out dozens and dozens of booking e-mails also means staying up way too late and watching old horror movies. Tonight’s selection is Italian director Lucio Fulci‘s 1981 zombie gorefest The Beyond (aka Seven Doors of Death). I really wasn’t all that freaked out until the tarantulas started eating the dude’s face. (The scene is on YouTube. Look it up. I’m not about to make you watch it.)

The trailer from the recent US DVD release is below. The original trailer isn’t embeddable, but you can see it here. (Warning: It’s rather graphic.) If you’re a fan of gratuitous gore, this is about as good as it gets. They don’t call Fulci the “king of the eyeball gag” for nothing.
