If you have not heard of Grimes, you have literally been living under a rock. Claire Boucher exploded into the electronic music scene back in 2010 with her releases on Arbutus Records. She graced the covers of The FADER, Nylon, Dazed and Confused, NME, Flare and more. Ever since her emergence, she has released albums that have either topped the charts worldwide or remixed someone else’s track into superstardom. I could go on all day about her accomplishments, but that would prevent you from spending your time PURCHASING tickets for her Electric Factory show this Friday 6/3 presented by Wizard World. I hear it will probably sell out so HURRY!
The music concert series presented by Wizard World Comic Con will bring top, breakout musical talent to several cities across the U.S. during its inaugural run this summer and fall. The series will also include alternative pop singer HANA, who is opening for Grimes this Friday June 3, 2016 in Philadelphia. Other artists include the stunning and provocative singer, songwriter, Melanie Martinez performing this summer.
Wizard World’s music concert series has also commissioned acclaimed Los Angeles-based pop artist Kii Arens to create and design all eight of the limited edition, exclusive art rock posters for each artist performing at the shows. The artwork will be included in the limited VIP package for each concert in the series. Arens’ portfolio includes a remarkable 300 pieces created and designed for distinguished artists such as Radiohead, Beck, The Pixies, Lana Del Rey, The Beach Boys, and more.
