Seito ChibiCon announces The Slants as first guest
San Jose, CA - February 18, 2007 - Seito ChibiCon is proud to present The Slants as the first honored guest for the convention.. The Slants are an Asian synthpop/rock band hailing from Portland, OR who will be making a stop at the new convention during their West Coast tour.
2008 will be Seito ChibiCon's second year, focusing on anime culture and events such as a masquerade, Cosplay Chess, Battle Royale Capture the Flag, and numerous panels and activities. 30 high schools in the area have been invited to participate, with seven being directly involved with the one day event. The Slants will be performing a live concert as well as participating in some of the conventions events.
"We can't wait to play at ChibiCon," says bassist and founder Simon Young, "we only had 21+ events scheduled in the Bay Area so this will be a great chance for all of our under age fans to come and see us, especially the ones we met at Sac-Anime!"
The Slants will be on a ten day tour, performing throughout the West Coast, wiith the final performance scheduled at Sakuracon (Seattle, WA). Geoffery Ganger productions will also be traveling with the band, filming a documentary about the tour and the band's astounding rise in popularity. Those attending Seito Chibicon, as well as Sakuracon and the other west coast show dates, will have the opportunity to be interviewed and included as part of the dvd to be released later this summer.
