Kirby Krackle, Seattle’s hottest nerd rock band, plays at the Portland Things From Another World on Monday July 15th with openers H2Awesome as part of their “Sounds Like You” 2013 West Coast Tour! Come to the Portland TFAW at 2916 NE Broadway: the cover is $7, doors open at 7:30, and the show is from 8:00-10:00 p.m.
Kirby Krackle is headed by Kyle Stevens, who has been reading comics and writing and recording music since the age of 13, and Jim Demonakos, founder of Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon as well as The Comic Stop chain of retail stores. Known for high-energy shows and songs referencing pop-culture icons, comic book characters, and video games, Kirby Krackle’s name has become synonymous with melding nerd themes with superior musicianship.
“One of the key advantages of moving the Portland TFAW to our new location is the increased space to do big, one-of-a-kind events,” said TFAW Vice President Andrew McIntire. “We’re excited to have Kirby Krackle and H2Awesome come and blow the doors off!”
This is the first West Coast tour for New York’s H2Awesome, which includes Charlie LaGreca (artist/illustrator for DC Comics, co-founder/director of Denver Comic-Con), Jeff LaGreca (writer/director of Bijou and the ‘Bots, Gargoyle Garden, and Elfland), Jon Price (writer/creator of Magus and 12 Gauge Comics), Matt van Metre, and Gregg Zehentner.
Water/sodas and light snacks provided. CDs for both bands will be available for purchase. Make sure to come to the Portland TFAW 7/15 for an evening of geeky fun!

Rebekah Isaacs and Jon Price sign their new book MAGUS #1 from 12 Gauge Comics at Midtown Comics in New York City on Friday, December 17th, 2010 from 1:00-2:00PM. Rebekah will be doing free sketches for anyone who purchases the book.
MAGUS: After being sealed away for thousands of years, humankind’s innate ability to use magic is accidentally released. Forces of good, evil – and somewhere in between – race against each other to find the reason for the outbreak. Some want to defend its use and save a world thrown into chaos, others aim for less honorable goals. Ben and Darius, both approaching their 18th birthdays, have strong magic welling up inside of them, much stronger than the average person. They rely on each other and a new group of powerful friends, as they fight to carve out a place for themselves in this strange era.
Rebekah Isaacs has had numerous penciling and inking credits with Marvel and DC Comics, including Ms. Marvel and DV8: Gods and Monsters. Her first break into the comics industry came in 2007 with Hack/Slash and Drafted from Devil’s Due. She is currently working on Magus and various things she’s not allowed to talk about yet at Marvel.
Jon Price worked across the board in the entertainment industry in television, film, and video games before discovering a calling for comics writing. Magus is his first published work. When he’s not writing you might find him playing guitar in NYC nerd rock outfit H2AWESOME. Jon and Rebekah live in Queens with their cat, Fantastic Donut.
