OvertureCon music convention in LA May 18-19

OvertureCon is pleased to announce that Ohio’s rabid rocking Cadaver Dogs and Sunset Strip denizens Queen Caveat are scheduled to appear at the first incarnation of the music convention to be held May 18-19, 2013 at The Mint (6010 West Pico Blvd, LA 90035). The convention portion of the weekend occurs from 12pm to 5pm and nighttime shows are from 8:30pm to 12:30am. Tickets for the 16+ event are now available at The Mint’s website.

Convention Pass (both days and eves) - $100 until March 20th, $140
Single Day pass (day and eve) - $75
Music only pass (both nights) - $35 until March 20th, $50
Door tickets (evening music only) if not sold out - $30
VIP experience pass (weekend long): $75 (available March 20th)

Having already released a pair of erratic EPs, 2010’s Thrill Ride and 2011’s On All Fours, Cadaver Dogs delivered their debut full length album superloose in late 2012, a mesmerizing array of delirium-inducing rock ragers and kaleidoscopic freak-outs for those adventurous enough to take the trip. Their current video, “The Change Up” is available at

“We're very excited to be playing the inaugural OvertureCon,” says Cadaver Dogs' drummer Lex Vegas. “And one day when it rivals Coachella and Bonnaroo, we'll come back to co-headline with The Killers and Beyoncé and we'll remember how much fun we had getting drunk with our fans at the first one!”
Queen Caveat, a hard-hitting four-piece led by the ferocious Lauren Little, has been quick to turn the heads of rock fans nationwide on the strength of their infectious anthems, unrivaled musicianship, and riotous stage show. Following their 2011 debut EP Emptor, the Los Angeles-based band has been riding the nationwide buzz of their 2012 sophomore EP, Slap on the Wrist. The video for their new single “Mr. California” is available at

OvertureCon focuses on creating meaningful exchanges between up-and-coming bands and their loyal core fans in an environment that is both intimate and powerful. The approximately 200 attendees will engage with artists at daytime panels and smaller gatherings, with the opportunity to rock the night away at exclusive shows. In addition to artists sharing their music with fans during panels and live performances, they will also be able to share other creative endeavors with fans during the convention experience.

Planned panel topics include:
Radio/Music Discovery
Women In Music
Life On The Roa
Kickstarter/DIY Music
The Look - Music & Fashion
Inspiration & Influences
Fan the Band

OvertureCon co-founder Stacey Lawson says, “As music uber fans ourselves, we’re creating the kinds of panel topics and experiences that we’d want to have. We want to go beyond the basic boring interviews and really get to the nitty gritty of rock-n-roll.“

Bored with the same old ten second meet ‘n’ greet scene, OvertureCon founders Sabrina Greenwood-Briggs and Stacey Lawson longed for a more meaningful way to connect fans like themselves with their favorite music artists. With VIP experiences, intimate performances and lifelong friendships to be forged, the 2012 Los Angeles event is the first of many OvertureCons across the nation – and beyond!
