The Dark Side Of The Con is a three-day Goth and Alternative Convention presented by VampireFreaks. It will feature vendors, cosplay, contests, special events, music and more. If this is your scene then you know you need to be there.
Greetings and felicitations my friends, I am back with the final chapter of my 2013 NY Comic Con explorations. It’s been some glorious fun presenting our photographic findings to you for the past few days but with this installment that presentation will come to an end until next year’s convention. It was very weird being one of the huddled masses instead of the working press this time around but as I stressed in an earlier chapter, no one is prevented from bringing a camera along with them to the convention and if you are polite the cosplayers are very accomodating. The hardest part I had was making any new engagements with professionals since some of them just didn’t believe me to be the scribe that I am. Oh well, more time to focus on the ones who know the outlet and appreciate our taking time to focus on them. This final chapter is MOSTLY cosplay and since the characters are pretty easy to figure out there will be limited narrative from me. I’m beyond tired at this point but here we go.
“The Birthday Massacre are a fantastically interesting Gothic band from Toronto, Canada who formed in 1999 originally under the name Imagica. According to the band history, they named themselves after a Clive Barker tale but switched over to The Birthday Massacre in 2001 to avoid any problems with another band who used a similar name. Somehow I think the group made the best decision and for years since the change, their singer Chibi and the gang have entertained all the ghouls and boys that find their music of interest with album after album of their brand of melody.” This Saturday, December 1st, The Birthday Massacre arrives in NYC once again as a part of a Vampirefreaks.com extravaganza and their bringing along William Control, Aesthetic Perfection and Creature Feature as supporting acts. I’ve only managed to see TBM (which I will refer to them from now on for the sake of typing) once in concert and I had a great time so that makes me excited to offer my readers the chance to enjoy this unique show thanks to the incredible folks at Livenation. Yep. Free show on us my fiends. Isn’t that special? Continue reading Want To See The Birthday Massacre in NYC on 12/1/2012?
