The zombie members of Hudson, Wisc.,’s Cal Hopkins’ Amish Armada probably aren’t really Amish. They might not even really be undead. Still, there’s something sinister there under those beards. The Amish may advocate a nonviolent lifestyle, but zombies are nothing if not unpredictable, and these guys are almost certainly smarting from that tough Green Bay loss in Philly this past weekend. Perhaps they’ll take that pain and unleash it upon a defenseless nightclub audience. Then, our only hope will be that Glenn Danzig will arrive, become enraged upon seeing the band’s logo—a bearded Misfits skull—and save the day. Hope for the best when the Amish Armada plays at 9 p.m. at the Velvet Lounge, 915 U St. NW. Free. (202) 462-3213. (Mike Kanin)
