Headbangers Con

Hey rock and metal fans, do we have a great event for you next weekend in the Pacific Northwest!!  Get yourselves to Portland, Oregon next weekend for HEADBANGERS CON!

Yes, it is just as the name implies! A convention for all the music fans focused around rock and metal!! Just imagine Comicon, but with metal! This is HEADBANGERS CON! There will be celebrity musicians, artists, special guests, panels, photo ops, autographs, concerts, merchandise, vendors galore, entertainment, live tattooing and so much more. For the kids under 10, there’s even a guitar pick scavenger hunt. That alone makes me wish I was still 10 to get my hands on these picks!

So if you’ve ever wanted to get up close and personal with your music idols, get to Portland November 10th – 11th for all the fun! We will be there covering this event as well, so you could even end up in our next edition of YesterdazeNews Magazine! We hope to see you out there, if you spot me come say hello!
