FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, CA (TUESDAY MAY 7, 2013) – OvertureCon is proud to announce the OvertureCon Launch Party at the 98-7fm Penthouse at The Historic Hollywood Tower on Friday, May 17th with doors at 7pm. Cadaver Dogs and Honor Society will be performing acoustic sets. Tickets are not available for purchase. To win tickets, listen to 98-7fm or follow the station on Twitter or Facebook.

Having already released a pair of erratic EPs, 2010’s Thrill Ride and 2011’s On All Fours, Ohio’s Cadaver Dogs’ debut full length album superloose is now available on iTunes. A mesmerizing array of delirium-inducing rock ragers and kaleidoscopic freak-outs for those adventurous enough to take the trip, superloose promises to ”beat you to death and jolt you back to life with one quick thrust, and you’ll walk away with the scars to prove it, if you walk away at all”.
New York City’s Honor Society has been named a breakout band to watch by Rolling Stone Magazine and deemed a Buzzworthy band by MTV. Their 2009 debut album ‘Fashionably Late’ reached #18 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week and their 2011 followup “A Tale Of Risky Business Part 2” also charted. They’ve headlined six national tours, selling out Irving Plaza and Granmercy in their hometown and House of Blues on LA’s infamous Sunset Strip. They’ve performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Today Show, CBS Early Show and during the NFL Pro Bowl. Their new EP Serendipity is also available on iTunes.
OvertureCon takes place May 18-19, 2013 at The Mint (6010 West Pico Blvd, LA 90035). The convention portion of the weekend occurs from 1pm to 5pm, doors at 12pm and nighttime shows are from 8:30pm to 12:30am, doors at 7:30pm.

Music überfans Sabrina Greenwood-Briggs and Stacey Lawson longed for a more meaningful way than the traditional meet ‘n’ greet to connect fans with their favorite artists. Thus was born OvertureCon, an experience focused on creating meaningful exchanges between up-and-coming bands and their loyal core fans in an intimate, powerful environment. The approximately 200 attendees will engage with artists at daytime panels and smaller gatherings, with the opportunity to rock the night away at exclusive shows. In addition to artists sharing their music with fans during panels and live performances, they will also be able to share other creative endeavors with fans during the convention experience.
