The music of Phoenix Comicon 2011

Organizers of Phoenix Comicon started rolling out band announcements this week for their 2011 event, set for May 26-29 (Memorial Day weekend) at the Phoenix Convention Center & Hyatt Regency.

Here’s what they have so far:

  • Random aka Mega RanMega Ran, aka Random, an underground rapper, producer and teacher out of Philadelphia and now Phoenix who has performed at SXSW and Nerdapalooza. He’s worked with Capcom and featured on a hip-hop alternative soundtrack for Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and will soon be releasing an album using tunes from Square’s Final Fantasy VII.
  • Giant Girlfriend, an alternative trip-hop act out of Oakland.
  • Spawn Atomic, known for music that is “fast and catchy with sexy melodic lyrics about werewolves and zombies chewing at your arteries.” They performed at last year’s con.
  • Toybox, a three-piece rock band out of Japan (by way of Tempe).

Noticeably absent (so far) from previous years: horror-punk heartthrobs Calabrese, Seattle nerd rockers Kirby Krackle and anime cover band Kitsune Robot. An official comment from the Phoenix Comicon Facebook page notes that more guests may be announced as contracts are signed.
