Whether you love or hate Valentine's Day, it's a reality that many of us have to face. To that end, LAist will be highlighting various ideas, from restaurants to events as the big day approaches. And to kick off the series, there's no better event than Zombie Prom.For the second year in a row, indie-pop group Saint Motel is hosting a Valentine's Zombie Prom at The Roxy. Think about it, it's a great excuse to do Halloween all over again and if you're a lucky little undead couple, you might win the zombie prom king and queen costume competition after some "bloodthirsty" libations on the drink special menu.

The band will be joined by Young The Giant (formerly The Jakes), Chasing Kings and Links, all while zombie themed visuals take over the famous Sunset Strip venue.

Saint Motel is one of the city's local bands recently gaining excellent buzz (on their MySpace page, check out the songs "Dictator" and "Butch."). "Make no mistake, Jackson, Erwin, guitarist Aaron Sharp and bassist Dak are deadly serious about making music that transcends the boundaries of four-piece rock ‘n’ roll," said Buzz Bands LA writer Kevin Bronson last Fall. "The music is pretty freakin' good," Samantha Page of the LA Times exclaimed last month.
