Rock Comic Con

Denver Comic Con‘s after party, Rock Comic Con, returns this year with three great geek rock bands at the Denver Hard Rock Cafe next to the Colorado Convention Center on Saturday June 16th.

Bands for the event include Paul and Storm, H2Awesome!, and Random Battles. Paul and Storm are a comedy duo whose music has appeared on the Bob and Tom radio show, Dr. Demento, Comedy Central, Drew Carey Show, The Guild, Homestar Runner, and more.   They have even performed with Jonathan Coulton, Wil Wheaton, Neil Gaiman, Felicia Day, and Weird Al.  They have been a duo since 2004 before then they were one half of an acapella band Da Vinci’s Notebook, who I got to see preform live many years ago.  Lots of laugh all around with these guy.

H2Awesome, from NYC, is a geek rock band  with a comedic side of their own.  Fronted by two brothers, the two have worked with the likes of Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and written for Conan O’Brien, AMC, Nickelodeon, the Food Network, and Comedy Central.  Random Battles is a video game rock band with original and rocking versions of songs from Mega Man, Castlevania, Metroid, Zelda, and other faves.

The event will feature live artist creating new work during the event.  Prizes and giveaways will be awarded through the evening.   A limited edition (300) collectors Hard Rock Cafe pin commemorating both the Denver and Rock Comic Con will be available.  The Cafe will be serving The Fantastic Pour the official beer of Breckenridge Brewery made specifically for the con.  All proceeds from the event go to Comic Book Classroom, an after school literacy program running in 8 Colorado area schools.

Doors open at 9pm.  Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
