Grimes will headline Philly’s Wizard World Comic Convention because Grimes is awesome
Back on Tuesday, it was announced that Canada’s resident indie-pop extraterrestrial Grimes will be headlining the Electric Factory on June 3rd to support her critically acclaimed Art Angels…and we are beyond pumped. That won’t be Claire Boucher’s only performance that day, however.
The Wizard World Comic Convention will be in town that weekend at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and will feature appearances from Captain America, Marty McFly, Daryl Dixon… and a performance by Grimes herself.
According to Fact Magazine, Grimes will be the first musician to perform at a Comic Con. This is not surprising: Grimes love for all things comic are evident in her album art, performances, and especially her music videos.
Along with Grimes and the previously mentioned, also in attendance will be several more Avengers (Thor, Loki, etc.), David Duchovny from the X-Files, Christopher Lloyd, and… John Cena.
You can pick up tickets to the Wizard World Comic Con over at their website. Watch the video for Grimes’ “REALiTi” below.
