Is there any more enduring horror icon than the vampire? Sure, zombies have their fans, but overall vamps seem to rule the day. So it makes perfect sense they finally have a convention all their own: Vampire-Con, running August 14th–16th, 2009, in Hollywood, CA.
Here’s the lowdown straight from the press release: The Vam-Pop culture weekend is going to kick off with a two-day film festival (schedule to be announced shortly) on Friday and Saturday at the New Beverly Cinema featuring some of the best vampire movies out there. On Sunday Vampire-Con flies over to The Music Box @ Fonda for a day of panel discussions, vampire history, contests, and more. Things really get pumping when the sun goes down for the 21+ vampire rave that goes on into the night with special performances by The Lucent Dossier Experience and sets by DJ Gary Calamar, music supervisor of HBO’s “True Blood”.
