Phoenix, Ariz. March 20, 2010—Kirby Krackle, a rock band with pop-culture and geek flavor is set to appear and perform at Phoenix Comicon. Their song titles include “Naked Wii,” “The Villain Song,” and “Zombie Apocalypse.”

“I love music and I love being a geek, and when I can combine the two I’m never happier,” said Joe Boudrie, programming director. “Plus, Kirby Krackle is hilarious. They’re going to rock Phoenix Comicon.”

Kirby Krackle consists of Jim Demonakos and Kyle Stevens, who write their songs about topics ranging from comic books, video games, zombies, girls and much more.

“We have some great bands lining up to play at the Hyatt Regency, our host hotel for our evening and nighttime programming,” said Matt Solberg, Convention Director. “A lot of people don’t know how great the music scene is going to be at Phoenix Comicon.”

Demonakos is no stranger to the Comicon scene. Organizer of the largest comic book & pop culture show in the Pacific Northwest, Emerald City Comic Con, he also co-owns the largest chain of comic book stores in the state of Washington, the Comic Stop. Stevens, a professional songwriter and producer, has been writing and recording since he was 15. His current solo debut, “Songs from the Orange Room” is now available on iTunes.

Additional bands performing at the Phoenix Comicon include Calabrese, an international horror rock band; Bad Cactus Brass Band, a New Orleans Second Live Street band; Kitsune Robot, an anime song cover band; and Spawn Atomic, a horror band with zombie and werewolf infused lyrics.
