About a week and a half to go to Convergence 14. C-14 is a big gothic convention that will be in Ybor City, Tampa, FL this year. Lucky for me that happens to be local! GingerDead and Friends will have a table there where you can purchase prints, greeting cards and other goodies. I’m taking the ‘and friends’ part literally and will have Jim Morey with me, an amazing musician who also happens to make some delicious chainmaille jewelry. His site design and many or the photos were done by yours truly, btw, so take a peek. Be sure to hit the launch player button to hear some of his tunes – Anything for Adventure is one of my faves.
I’ve been checking out the bands that will be performing at C-14 and am digging Audra (listening to What Your Eyes Had right now). They list Joy Division as an influence and I can definitely hear that and certainly don’t object. Voltaire will also be there. He wears a lot of hats…performer, comic creator, musician, etc. Speaking of which, he’s wearing a killer hat on his current MySpace page. Oooh, I really dig his look there! Voltaire’s music has a campy, spooky, cabaret vibe that I think would be even more fun live. Synthetic Dream Foundation sounds great and they are from Tampa. How did I not here of them before?! Anyway, that’s just a few of the bands that will be there, you can hit the site up for the full list of C-14 Goth Music.
You know, I’ve been so busy scrambling to prepare for this convention, that I really haven’t been excited about it until this very minute. So…. hOO!
Hope to see you there…
