Here are final details on our PANCAKE CHOWDOWN and 2 LATE-NIGHT PARTIES (Heavy Metal Party II and Hero vs Villain Party) at Dragon*Con 2010! Check back here on THURSDAY (Sept. 2nd) where we’ll post the location of the PANCAKE CHOWDOWN, once we check into the Hyatt Regency.
Dragon*Con is right around the corner and if you plan on attending either/both of our late-night parties, a PARTY PASS is required in order to get by door security. In addition to having a PARTY PASS, you’ll also need to bring a photo I.D. as both parties are 21+ ONLY.
Those of you who have already reserved a VIP PARTY PASS (with a set donation) will need to pick them up, and many more of you will need to secure a REGULAR PARTY PASS, if you want access to our TWO late-night parties during Dragon*Con 2010. Both passes will be good for BOTH parties (in other words, there are not different passes for each party).
The main difference between a VIP and Regular Party Pass is that VIP Party Pass holders get access to our parties one hour early, giving them access to Party Hunch-Punch, as well as getting them in the door before the parties fill up. (FYI, all VIP Party Passes are ALL GONE, so please do not send in any more monetary donations. Any future VIP donations will be refunded due to this.)
Location of the parties in the Hyatt Regency will be hand-written on ALL Party Passes. DJ Nemesis (who will be DJing the must-attend D*Con Saturday night DRAGON DANCE) and DJ Spider will be rockin’ both parties…read about all of that HERE.
• FRIDAY NIGHT: Heavy Metal Party II (Midnight – 3 a.m., VIPs enter 11 p.m.)
• SATURDAY NIGHT: Hero Vs Villain Party (11 p.m.–2 a.m., VIPs enter 10 p.m.)
Partiers are allowed to bring their own adult beverage to our parties. Although we will have Party Hunch Punch BOTH nights, it will eventually run out. We also ask that you bring a container that has a lid.
All the info. you need to pick up an already-reserved VIP Party Pass or snag a Regular Party Pass is below:
• THURSDAY: (Sept. 2nd) 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. in the Hyatt Regency PARASOL BAR. Come see old friends and make new ones during the CON*tourage “Meet & Greet!” Due to high demand, only ONE Regular Party Pass per person. VIP Party Pass holders can also pick up reserved passes. Look for a CON*tourage sign if you have a hard time locating us. For more info on the CON*tourage Meet & Greet, click HERE.
• FRIDAY: (Sept. 3rd) 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. outside of the Hyatt Regency Grand Hall (where the Art Show/Artist Alley will be located). Visit the GIRLS OF THE CON fan table to pick up reserved VIP Passes. Want to snag a Regular Party Pass? With the purchase of each 2011 “Girls of the Con Calendar,” people can receive a Regular Party Pass. Need two Regular Party Passes? Purchase two GoTC 2011 Calendars. Calendars are $15 each (or two for $25). If you purchase a calendar(s), you MUST ask to receive a Regular Party Pass (in other words, due to the limited number of Party Passes, not every calendar purchased will be accompanied by a Party Pass unless asked for. No reason to give party passes out to people who may not use them). Want more info. on “Girls of the Con”? Visit their website. See TRACI at the “Girls of the Con” table to pick up your VIP/Regular Party Passes or if you need more info.
• FRIDAY: (Sept. 3rd) 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in the Marriott Marquis PULSE BAR. Come find Axl Rose, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, or Dr. Rockzo (the Rock n’ Roll Clown). One, some, or all may be there…just keep your eyes open! VIP Party Pass holders can pick up their reserved passes and Regular Party Pass seekers can snag one, if any are still available (only ONE Regular Party Pass per person).
NOTE: We have a limited amount of Regular Party Passes (just like we had a limited amount of VIP Party Passes) so there is a high possibility that we WILL run out.
—> PARTY CAPACITY: Once the party reaches maximum capacity, door security will “close” entry until people leave to make room for others so please understand if you arrive and can’t get immediate access.
Anyone who has attended a CON*tourage party knows that the MUSIC is just as important as the theme, costumes, atmosphere and partiers in attendance.
Those hard at work behind the mysterious CON*tourage curtain realized early on, when starting their Dragon*Con 2010 party planning, that with such unique and exciting party themes (HEAVY METAL PARTY II and HERO vs VILLAIN PARTY), acquiring master DJs would be both the cherry AND icing on their homemade party cakes. With one DJ, it was an immediate fit and a match made in Hell when paired with CON*tourage’s HEAVY METAL PARTY. With the other, the search took longer but the outcome couldn’t have been better. Good things come to those who wait and due to that, the HERO vs VILLAIN PARTY will witness a true web spinning, from one of the leggiest Spiders around.
DJ NEMESIS to rock Friday night’s HEAVY METAL PARTY II
For anyone who has met DJ Nemesis, it can’t be denied how much energy and enthusiasm he has not only for his art of DJ’ing but also for life in general. CON*tourage first acquired DJ Nemesis for one of their parties at Dragon*Con 2009 and the pairing fit so perfectly that there was no doubt that lightning would strike twice. Nemesis, who mastered the beat in his early teens, was a drummer-turned-DJ who honed his craft for the next decade in Industrial, Heavy Metal, and Glam Rock bands including Planet Psycho, FUSEBOX and The Glitterdome Allstar Band. Ever since 2001, he has continued to inspire the evolution of his coveted underground subculture scene and leads the charge at album and movie release parties, fetish events, club nights and conventions. Nemesis is also the resident DJ for www.secretroom.net events in Atlanta and Tampa. Although Nemesis excels at Industrial/EBM/Synthpop /Goth and more, partiers during CON*tourage’s HEAVY METAL PARTY II can expect him to mix out well-known Metal anthems that will keep everyone pumping their fists and flashing some DEVIL HORNS all night long. Visit DJ Nemesis on Facebook to learn more about him: http://www.facebook.com/pages/DJ-NEMESIS/366168994173. Complete info. on the HEAVY METAL PARTY II, which DOES require either a VIP or REGULAR PARTY PASS, can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=111984005514715
DJ Nemesis will also be spinning the DRAGON DANCE, Saturday night during Dragon*Con, from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. in the Marriott Marquis Atrium Ballroom. This will be his third year in a row taking charge and moving hundreds of bodies. Dragon*Con badge required for entry.

DJ SPIDER to spin her musical web at Saturday night’s HERO VS. VILLAIN PARTY
Primarily a Goth/industrial DJ with a healthy dose of 80s, Pop and Electro, DJ Spider has spun a variety of formats over the years, which means anything is bound to show up in her sets, described as “vibrant”, “surprising”, “kick-ass”, and “Omigod, is she really that tall?” And, in addition to this leggy Spider being one kick-ass DJ, she is also a master costumer, which is another reason she is a perfect fit for the CON*tourage HERO vs VILLAIN PARTY, asking attendees to don their favorite hero or villain costume. DJ Spider, based out of Charlotte, NC, has a reputation as a both a DJ and an entertainer, which both have been been highly rated, as is her commitment to maintaining a Drama-Free Zone. She has opened for the Cruxshadows, the Last Dance, Voltaire, Anders Manga, Bella Morte, and Das Ich. She is no stranger to conventions either, having appeared at Chattanooga’s ConNooga, Minneapolis’ CONvergence, and her beloved Dragon*Con in Atlanta. DJ Spider was honored to be voted “Charlotte’s Best Party DJ” for the last 5 years (2006-2010) by the Creative Loafing. Regardless of the size, Spider’s goal is always to make any night the best experience possible for everyone there. In her free time, Spider can be found pretending to sleep, crafting costumes, indulging in various geekery and maintaining a number of pets. And, yes, she really is that tall. Visit DJ Spider on her MySpace page to learn more about her: http://www.myspace.com/thatdjspider.
