Las Vegas Wizard World 2015


Las Vegas Wizard World Comic Con was held this past April 24th-26th at the Las Vegas Convention Center and I was on hand on the 25th to cover it. I'm no stranger to either Comic Cons nor Las Vegas so I was pretty excited to see what this convention was going to hold. At first I pulled my (red?) Nissan rental car into the convention center's parking lot and proceeded to walk into the convention... the wrong convention. On the end of the convention center was the 2015 International Car Wash Expo. Not a lot of cosplay there, but plenty of middle aged men desperately trying to hide their receding hairlines and excited about the newest car wash soaps that were coming out. After wandering around a bit I walked outside the convention center to the complete opposite end and found my rightful destination at Wizard World.

I arrived at the convention about an hour or so after they opened doors due to a combination of my personal dislike for standing online and that I spent the previous night drinking a good amount of tequila, cider, and (for some unknown reason) rumple minze at the Halo Bar in Planet Hollywood. So the con was in full swing when I got there. One of the first things I saw as I was wandering around was BJ Britt aka "Agent Triplett" on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. posing for pictures with two guys cosplaying as S.H.I.E.L.D. foot soldiers. This was away from his booth and just on the floor which was pretty entertaining to me.
If you've ever been to New York Comic Con this event was about the size of Artist Alley at the Javits Center. If you've never been there, well google the floor plan. In the back were where the celebrities were signing autographs. The ones I noticed were Kevin Sorbo, Cassandra Peterson aka "Elvira" not done up as the Mistress of the Dark (which I guess she only does for certain events like the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender), the aforementioned BJ Britt, Kevin Conroy, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose (who had the longest lined pictured below).
There was some cosplay at this event, but not nearly as much as you see at SDCC or NYCC. Which surprised me being that it's Vegas and people dress however they want there anyway. There was the expected store bought costumes, some good homemade ones, and the majority of them seemed to be The Walking Dead, but the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cosplayers were the best I saw led by a badass Skeletor.
I will say that this was definitely more on the lines of a "pop culture" convention than a comic convention. There were plenty of vendors selling collectibles from Star Wars to Marvel to DC to Pop Vinyls to that fake tattoo stuff the west coast seems to love so much. Comic books though were far and few between and there were even less artists represented here (which is my favorite part of any comic convention). I heard rumors from some of the locals that Wizard World and Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con failed to join forces or come to a deal for one large con and this was why there wasn't too much in the way of comics represented here.

If you want to meet celebrities and not wait on an eight hour line like you will in San Diego or New York City then this convention is definitely for you. Also, plenty of elbow room and none of that "con smell" that is prevalent at the larger cons. Unless you're looking forward to certain panels throughout the weekend you are better off just getting a one day pass to this event. All in all it was a good way to walk off the previous nights alcohol intake, check out some fun pop culture stuff, and avoid the desert sun. I should add that the ticket price is much more wallet friendly than all the other conventions I've gone to. Tommy the Green Power Ranger was there and there's also a monorail stop at the convention center for the monorail no one uses in Vegas because it's cheaper to take a cab.

And I'll just leave you with this...

Jameson reviews Adiron's "Frequency & Pressure"


So our friends in Adiron put out their first EP last week titled 'Frequency & Pressure', and our very own Jameson wrote up a review on it! You can find the album on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, or at their bandcamp page (http://adiron.bandcamp.com/album/frequency-pressure) Get over there and give it a listen. The Elvis and Alfred Show approves!
Once in a while you get a chance to listen to a record and you think to yourself, I can't wait to hear more. That's the way I felt when I first listened to the recently released first EP from the band Adiron. 'Frequency & Pressure' was released last week on iTunes and I foresee this band doing big things in they're home base of Long Island. Formed last year after the split of Whiskey Hotel, frontman Shawn O'Connor joined back up with former The Legend Lives cohorts and brothers Lou (guitar) and Brian (drums) Pelosi. Along with Guitarist George Giosi (formerly Not So Broken) and newcomer Erik Jacobsen with his screams and harmonies, this group of heavy hitters got right down to business. It can be heard on the record that it is very much guitar driven, with both George and Lou switching off on bass (Yes they are in need of a solid Bass player!). Every track from first to last takes you on a whirlwind ride of shredding and rawness that has been missing from so many of the bands of recent that have come out and flopped. The chemistry between the powerful vocals of Shawn and Erik works so well and compliment each other perfectly. And lastly, the drumming of Brian is heavy and intricate enough to keep your head banging, and your air drumming constant and in check! I assure you that Adiron is one of those bands that have a fire under them to become a big name in the Long Island scene, and I for one cannot wait. - Jameson
