Setsucon Introduces First Ever Concert Series, Featuring Four Amazing Musical Acts

ALTOONA, PA – Setsucon 2022 will introduce the first ever Concert Series at the convention, with two concerts across the weekend featuring four amazing musical acts: Awesomus Prime, Heroes 4 Hire, Otaku Ongaku, and ThaGATAnegrra. Access to each concert will be included with your appropriate Setsucon badge (Friday Concert – Weekend or Saturday Badge; Sunday Concert – Weekend or Sunday Badge) at no additional cost, however seating for both concerts is limited to the max capacity of the room. Times and further information will be available closer to the convention.

Awesomus Prime is the Rock Star convention Producer/DJ who doesn't shy away from entertaining the nerdy masses. His music is dedicated to showcasing remixes and music inspired by your favorite video games, anime, and cartoons. He also spices things up with just a dash of chiptune for his geek infused tracks and performance. Don't let your guard down around him though, you may catch a combo breaker of bass heavy music to the face.

ThaGataNegrra is a Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes/Del Tha Funky Homosapien vocal delivery, and lyrics reminiscent of Janet, De La Soul, and Eminem, all slapped on a technicolour New Wave cosplay rave in Tokyo.

ThaGataNegrra is an alternative hip-hop artist who specializes in a funky start-stop delivery; her rhyme arsenal runs the gamut from danceable ear candy to mind-searing aggression. Her distinct flow, catgirl persona, and kawaii aesthetic not only earned GATA the designation of “NJ's real-life Catwoman” by Indie Flava Magazine, but helped her make her own pawprint on the underground hip-hop scene and the con circuit.

Heroes 4 Hire is an American hip hop music duo from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The group consists of T-Ray-Digga The Legendary Super Saiyan and Ray Riley Tha Shinigami respectively and are often backed-up by The Mech Warrior DJ, Awesome Prime. The Duo, Specializing in Nerdcore hip hop, are a hidden gem of the East Coast. Often a surprise to most crowds on first encounter, but an instant fan favorite of the tri-state music scene. They are best know for their animated and hardcore delivery in live performances, carefully crafted lyrics and nerdy references that will sucker punch you right out of the track!
