Possible Oscar Returns to MarsCon
The ever-lovin’ lads of Possible Oscar have been confirmed for a return engagement at MarsCon 2011 in Bloomington, MN! We took last year off, but we’re back to rock the main stage with our own special brand of nerd rock. Will it be loud? Yes! Will there be four of us? Yes! Will Nathan hump his bass? Undoubtedly!
MarsCon 2011 runs March 4–March 6. The schedule is still being worked up, but as soon as we know for certain when we are performing, we will post it here. In the meantime, learn about all the music happenings and how you can help support the artists traveling to Minnesota by reading this block of text gleefully clipped from MarsConDemetia.com:
At last, the announcement that is long, long overdue, here are details on this year’s series of comedy music concerts and events happening at MarsCon 2011, and info on how to support it via our annual Fund Raiser album release. But first, here’s the basic info on the convention…
MarsCon 2011 is March 4th thru 6th, at the Holiday Inn Select in Bloomington, MN, right across from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport and next to the Mall of America. Go to http://www.marscon.org for more information and to pre-register. It’s $45 for a weekend badge until January 31st, after that it’ll be $60 at the door. This year’s Guests of Honor include actor Alexis Cruz, Four-time Hugo Award winner Lois McMaster Bujold, Joe & Megan Rheault of Dirtyinks and Pixiegirl Studio, and Bjo & John Trimble (famous for the “Save Star Trek” campaign).
So which comedy musicians are coming to perform at the MarsCon 2011 Dementia Track you ask? Well first of all, there’s MarsCon 2011’s Music Guest Of Honor, one of Dr. Demento’s most requested acts of the 2000’s, a founding member of the FuMP, and a colossal fan favorite at MarsCon, it’s the one and only ShoEboX, also known as, WORM QUARTET! Also performing this year: Making not only his first ever appearance at MarsCon, but his first ever appearance in the MidWest, it’s the animated animator himself, TVs KYLE! There’s a couple of acts getting their first main stage concerts this year. We have the world’s first and only hard rock filk cover band, TOYBOAT! And performing in their new rock band trio configuration, we have SOGGY POTATO CHIPS! Other returning favorites performing on the main stage include POSSIBLE OSCAR, STEVE GOODIE, NUCLEAR BUBBLE WRAP, CIRQUE DU SO WHAT?, DEVO SPICE, INSANE IAN, POWER SALAD, THE GREAT LUKE SKI, and more! What more, you ask? Before I get to that, you need to know about this…

The Funds Raised will go towards covering the hotel room costs for the Dementia Track main stage concert performers this year, as well as to cover the fees & extra badges for our huge “Table 27″ merch table. This year’s collection includes music by Rob Balder, Worm Quartet, Schaffer The Darklord, The Nick Atoms, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Power Salad, Insane Ian, Steve Goodie, Carrie Dahlby, Throwing Toasters, Cirque du So What?, the great Luke Ski, Devo Spice, the Gothsicles, DJ Particle, Odd Austin, Dino-Mike, Chris Waffle, and more.
