Comic-Concert: The 2012 After Party, a fan created event that focuses on the musical aspect of pop culture, returns for its Fourth Annual installment, now being held at the Whiskey Girl (located on the corner of Fifth Avenue and G Street in Downtown San Diego) on Sunday, July 15th at 6pm. Over the past few years, the “Geek Rock” genre has grown significantly in size, and this special event allows Comic-Con and local San Diegans the opportunity to experience a different side of the Popular Arts. Sponsored in part by Youmacon and ComicsOnline.com, the evening will feature a special performance by San Diego’s Musical Comedy Band: Random Gibberish!
Attendees are encouraged to arrive in costume from Comic-Con for our annual Costume Contest! For the 2012 event, Shout! Factory has been kind enough to provide several prizes for best costume! Contest will be judged by ComicsOnline’s Editor-In-Chief, Kevin Gaussoin, and some special guests.
There is no cover charge to enter this event, but attendees are kindly requested to make a $5 donation at the door to support this program. You do not need to have a Comic-Con pass to attend this performance. Must be 21+ to enter.
Random Gibberish has been channeling their love of pop culture and general insanity into music since 2003. In 2009, they won ABC’s “Official LOST Theme Competition” at Comic-Con. They rock out and make people laugh with songs inspired by comic books, video games, movies and TV. In addition to their musical comedy, they will be performing selections from their upcoming musical project: “And Then The Zombies Came… A Musical Apocalypse!”, as well as a special musical tribute to Power Rangers in honor of the upcoming 20th Anniversary, and a sing-along to classic television themes.
