Anime Blues is pleased to announce its 5th year and returning to the Cook Convention Center in Downtown Memphis! We hope you love robots, monsters, and the good guys who save us from them because this year it's all about the action! Our special guests lineup for this year so far include: Trevor Devall, Brina Palencia, Vic Mignogna, and Garry Chalk! But wait we still have more such as;
Samurai Dan & Jillian
Phi Phi O'Hara
Pre-Registration is still open but has moved into our second tier pricing of $35 for a 4-Day pass. And yes, you did read that correctly. Anime Blues Con is celebrating it's 5th year and this time it's bigger than ever before! Guests, more panels than previous years; we have decided to help celebrate our 5th year by switching to a 4-Day Convention and all staying under that same low price. Here's the catch/fine print; however, the extra day is only open to our Pre-Registered attendees meaning that NO Walk-In badges will be sold on Thursday. Although we say it's an extra day it's technically a half of a day but cut us some slack. Badge pick-up for our Pre-Registared attendee's begin at 4pm with panels scheduled to begin at 6pm on Thursday!
Don't wait around to buy your badges as once Pre-Registration ends on June 8th, you will have to buy your badge at the door and unfortunatly won't be able to join all the fun we have planned on Thursday. So start digging in those couch cushions and that washer/dryer for change we all seem to forget in our pockets!
Hotel rooms are still available! Be sure to get yours while they're still there for the discounted price of $125/night! If you call them, be sure to mention Anime Blues Con to receive the discounted price. To reserve your hotel room, click the image below or, here:
