Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent have reformed the Zombies and hit town tonight. You can make your walking undead jokes, but these old fogeys played a show at MusicFestNW in 2006 and I thought it was a total blast. They played through their catalog of '60s hits, with a smattering of tunes from the absolutely brilliant Odessey & Oracle (not enough, though; its is one of the best albums of all time, and they could play the entire thing through with no complaint from me), and also launched into a few choice tunes ("Hold Your Head Up") from Rod Argent's '70s band, aptly called Argent. Tonight will be another welcome trip down memory lane; if you've ever been a Zombies fan, you're sure to have fun tonight.
The Zombies w/the Sugarlumps; Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell, 8 pm, $25
Here are two of the Zombies' early singles. You probably know both of these songs very well.
