2 Live Crew, Andrew WK playing Zombie Pub Crawl as it expands into St. Paul

2 Live Crew are one of the headliners at this year's ZPC
Anyone who tried to set foot on the West Bank last year during Zombie Pub Crawl can tell you that the once modestly sized bar crawl has gotten a bit too big for its britches. What started as a 150-person tour of Northeast bars later moved to Washington Avenue the West Bank to accommodate its exponentially larger crowds, but even that sizable stretch of larger bars and venues couldn't contain the swelling throngs of undead revelers.

To compensate for their event's popularity, the Zombie Pub Crawl organizers are trying something a little different this year: Dueling ZPC events in both St. Paul and Minneapolis. And with stellar musical acts already booked for both cities, there's no doubt that this October 8 is going to be the biggest zombie gathering yet.

The Mears Park location in St. Paul will also be the site of a Guinness World Record attempt at 8 p.m. on October 8, and is the only all-ages location in the crawl.

ZPC maestro Taylor Carik says he expects more musical acts to be announced next week, but here's what they have confirmed so far, including Andrew WK and 2 Live Crew (!):

That's a whole lot of drunk driving, splitting the event between both cities. Good thinking.

Heard interesting talk of them trying to sell the crawl to a certain big local name.

They offer wristbands for either the MPLS or the STP crawls or one for both.  When you purchase the wristband for both you also get free shuttle bus rides between the two locations throughout the night.

Good thinking indeed, Bobo.
