Wyoming Punk Rock Band Gears Up For Denver Comic Con Performance
This weekend, thousands of freaks and geeks will gather in the Mile High City for the annual Denver Comic Con, including the Wyoming punk rock band Sunnydale High.
The Laramie based outfit will be performing on the 5280 Stage Saturday and Sunday. 2016 marks the second consecutive year the band has been invited play at the convention.
"We are all super stoked to be playing Denver Comic Con again. I think we offer such an odd unique flavor to music in general that people, especially the nerdy pop-culture people tend to relate to us well," said guitarist and vocalist Seneca Flowers.
"We are just this silly band from southeast Wyoming. The coolest thing is seeing other local folks down there like Phil Mitotes of the Loft and local comic book artist Chad Blakely, who did our again poster this year."
The band was chosen, in part, for their infatuation with the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
According to the Denver Comic Con website, "Sunnydale High hails from the windswept plains of Wyoming and are a post-punk outfit with emotional lyrics and instrumentation inspired by the Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The songs are relatable to those not indoctrinated into the Buffyverse, but will have enough of the deeper tones to make any Buffy fan smile."
Sunnydale High will perform Saturday at 7:30 – 8:30 p.m and Sunday at 1 – 2 p.m.
