Do you like music? Do you enjoy geek culture? Well if that is so then may I present to you the one, the only, ROCK COMIC CON! Returning for a 3rd year in Denver; ROCK COMIC CON is a two day event featuring the geekiest music groups that can be found. Happening on June 13th and June 14th at the Armoury, this event is going to be hosted by NYC's own geekienominated H2Awesome!. The event will feature Total Ghost, 3D6, Magic Cyclops, Daenerys & The Targaryens, H2Awesome! (makes sense) and an as of yet unannounced headliner! ROCK COMIC CON is also partnering with Denver Drink and Draw to bring professional cartoonist along with national and local artists that will make a visual splash with live art and competitions during both nights.
For their third year the promoters of ROCK COMIC CON are continuing their mission to help support charitable causes through a number of fund-raising and benefit opportunities that support local and national artists. This year proceeds from the concert will go to Kirby4Heros, the Hero Initiative, and a "brand new local Scholarship fund developed by ROCK COMIC CON to celebrate the behind-the-scenes efforts of Frank Romero and Charlie LaGreca for their work establishing the Comic Book Classroom and Denver Comic Con in Denver". Details on this are forth coming.
If you want tickets to this event it is advised that you move fast. This event has been very popular for the past view years and is expected to sellout fast. Tickets can be purchase at www.RockComicCon.com. One day will be $15 while both nights run $25.
“pure punk rock goodness” – Comic Geek Speak
Straight out of the NYC comedy community (Upright Citizens Brigade, the Groundlings) H2Awesome! cut their comedy teeth with such notables as Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Adam McKay, Rob Riggle and others. Recently nominated for a Geekie award for their freshmen release, Zero Charisma, the 5 piece nerd-rock outfit celebrates pop culture through the lens of punk-rock anthems, well-crafted humor and over the top stage antics for a one-of-a-kind musical experience that you have to see to believe. Their first LP was released in 2013 and is available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
Despite their roots as a fake internet band, Total Ghost has quickly become a very real band that hails from Denver, Colorado and performs under the fictional guise of German electrokraut pioneers. The comical nature of the two, Chön and Biktor and their dance music, powered by jumpy synths, marching bass kicks, and classic builds is threaded with comical call and response lyrics. Their first video, “Custom Birthday” gained over 55,000 views within six months of its YouTube release and their fourth music video, “Tour Life” was featured at the Festivus Film Festival, where it won the “Best Music Video” award. It’s music that rockets beyond its gimmick, and into the stratosphere of a giant space party (with lightning)!
Magic Cyclops is a strange, funny and occasionally offensive rock 'n' roll character who is most well known for his raucous appearance on American Idol. He has DJ'd parties and clubs throughout Denver, competed in air guitar competitions all over the U.S. and made music — with the ‘almost-hit’ Unicorns in Space.
Daenerys and the Targaryens
Daenerys and the Targaryens come all the way to Denver from Westeros and the 7 Kingdoms where the Mother of Dragons will be burning up the stage. They are the first (and so far, only) Game of Thrones Punk Rock Band Experience that we know of and are sure to burst into dragon flames in our corporeal realm.
Kirby4Heroes - The Hero Initiative
Since its inception, The Hero Initiative (Formerly known as A.C.T.O.R., A Commitment To Our Roots) has had the good fortune to grant over $500,000 to over 50 comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today. The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays' creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment. http://www.heroinitiative.org/
