From a press release:

Former Misfits singer and current solo artist Michale Graves will perform an acoustic show with local band Lord Gorilla and The Ragdoll Crew at Ale Mary’s in downtown Scranton on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 9 p.m.

Presented by the NEPA Horror Film Festival, the 21+ event at Ale Mary’s (126 Franklin Ave., Scranton) is $10 at the door. The concert will be followed by a midnight screening of the original “Night of the Living Dead” and two short films.

Michale Graves is a singer/songwriter from Dumont, New Jersey whose career has spanned nearly two decades. Graves entered the music scene as lead singer of the Misfits in the 1990s and, after leaving the band, embarked on a successful solo career. He has appeared in many acclaimed film projects, including “Bruiser,” “Campfire Stories,” and notably starring in “Perkins’ 14.”

In August of 2012, Graves joined Hydraulic Entertainment as president and lead artist and began the most productive phase of his explosive career. He has released a series of sold-out albums, including “Vagabond,” “Lost Skeleton Returns,” “Vagabond Acoustic,” “Supernatural,” “Wanderer,” “Zombies Unite,” “Wanderer Acoustic,” “Drifter,” “Revenge of the Zombies,” and he has just released a new monster rock album titled “When Worlds Collide.” Graves has also acted in several short films produced by Hydraulic Entertainment, including “Zombie,” “Half Human,” “Wanderer,” “Zombies,” and “Ripper” as well as producing a spoken word anthology called “Nightmares.”

Always evolving as an artist, Graves has performed within several genres as fans followed his instantly recognizable voice across five continents. Known as much for his high-energy live shows and deeply moving acoustical interpretations as his full three octave vocal range and heart-wrenching lyrics, Graves is driven to create memorable performance experiences.

While entertainment is at the heart of who he is as a performer, Graves is also a social and pop culture media thought leader who has hosted as well as appeared on numerous broadcast properties, including “The Andrew Wilkow Show,” “The Flow with Kurt Wallace,” “The Sean Hannity Show,” “Adam vs. The Man,” “The Howard Stern Show,” “Truth Frequency Radio,” and “Where Monsters Dwell,” as well as in publications like The Guardian, the New York Times, and Rolling Stone.
